In his welcome address in tandem with the Men’s Missionary Union 108th Annual Conference themed, ‘Moving Forward, Finishing the Race with Joy’, the Executive Chairman of Yaba LCDA Hon. (Dr.) Kayode Adejare Omiyale implored participants to acknowledge themselves as blessed children of God by divine inheritance, making reference to the book of Acts 20:32.
He reemphasized the various virtues of Yaba LCDA as home to major higher institutions, religious headquarters, residence to many notable Nigerians which made some streets named after them and also, home to many corporate entities.
“I exhort us all as members of the Christendom not to relent as partners in progress with the Government of the day in navigating the path to salvage the prevailing state of crime and insecurity in the country, let us also join hands in fervent prayers that the COVID-19 pandemic ravaging the world will be a thing of the past and all of us will finish well.”
The guest speaker, Pastor Tunde Bakare in his speech enjoined all Christians not to limit their participation in politics to just voting cards collection but further in getting involved in the process of choosing who become party candidate from ward level to the top, saying, “This will enable the country to have the right and godly person at helm of affairs. By inference the country of our dreams will be achieved.”
Present at the event were Vice Chairman Hon. Bolanle Aileru, delegates from various Baptist Church denominations and others.
