Yomi-Sholoye advised Nigerians to cut down their social life expenses when and where possible in response to the economic challenges.
According to her, it will take a while for Nigeria to gradually get out of the current economic realities.
She urged the government to consider the sufferings of the masses, and take proactive actions towards addressing the country’s economic challenges.
According to Yomi-Sholoye, the youth are the future of the church, and by extension the nation. “We want them to live the life of Christ”.
Speaking on the essence of evangelism to the church, she said soul winning is very important. She said further that if citizens are depressed, soul winning might be difficult.

“Five years of unrelenting efforts towards populating God’s Kingdom – Glory be to Jesus.
“At NODE 5.0, there will be unending prayers, life changing seminars and other impactful sessions from morning through afternoon till evening and all night.
“Night of Divine Experience is a vigil of fervent prayers and undiluted word of God,” she said.
