Rev. Yakubu Pam, Executive Secretary, Nigeria Christian Pilgrims Commission (NCPC), has charged Christians on pilgrimage to Jordan not to relent in prayers for Nigeria.
According to Pam, such intercessions had helped the country in overcoming numerous challenges in the past.
Pam gave the charge on Saturday, in Jordan, while addressing Christians on pilgrimage to Jordan.
He said that continuous prayers over the years had helped the country overcome numerous challenges, indicating that the visits to the Holy Land had yielded positive results.
The Executive Secretary urged the pilgrims to pray for Nigeria’s unity, socioeconomic development and sustenance of democracy.
The NCPC Boss described pilgrimage as a sacred period for prayers and devotion.
“It is in the light of the holiness of the Holy pilgrimage that we should not hesitate in offering prayers for guidance for our leaders.”
He urged the pilgrims to see the exercise as a divine call to the service of God and humanity and to be good representatives of Nigeria.
“We, as patriotic citizens and Christians from Nigeria, should specifically offer prayers for workable solutions to the socioeconomic and security challenges confronting the nation.
“Surely, this is one sacred period where prayers of the righteous are promptly accepted and granted,” he said.
Pam urged the pilgrims to imbibe exemplary leadership style of Jesus Christ as epitomised in humility, honesty and integrity.
“This is just few of the sterling qualities that endeared Him to His followers during and after His journeys on earth,’’ he said.
Pam urged the pilgrims to reflect on their pilgrimage and rededicate themselves to the service of God and humanity.
“We have to reflect on our past mistakes and sins and seek for forgiveness for us to become righteous.
“This is the only way we can be able to intercede on behalf of the leaders through prayers, to solve our challenges,” he said.
The NCPC boss also charged the pilgrims to be dedicated to their spiritual services and engage less on social media.
Pam also harped on the need for Nigerians to look out for one another as their brothers’ keepers.
According to him, the current socioeconomic situation is not about being a Christian or a Muslim or Yoruba or Igbo or Hausa but a Nigerian citizen.
“This is the only way we can collectively tackle the numerous challenges confronting our country,” he said.
Also speaking, Executive Secretary, Plateau Christian Pilgrims Welfare Board, Fr. George Gurap, urged the pilgrims to adhere strictly to the COVID-19 protocol stipulated by the Jordanian Government to avoid being infected.

Gurap also urged the pilgrims to pray for the economic growth and prosperity of the people of Nigeria at large.(NAN)

Tinubu’s inauguration: We’re in charge here – Enenche dares witches, wizards coming to FCT



Pst Paul Enenche

The Senior Pastor of Dunamis International Gospel Center, Dr Paul Enenche has issued stern warning to witches and wizards coming into the Federal Capital Territory for the May 29 presidential inauguration.

It would be recall that the White Witches and Wizards Association of Nigeria had on May 1st, said they were making efforts to storm the nation’s capital in a bid to cleanse and detoxify the environment for the President-elect, Bola Tinubu to operate in.

The Spokesperson of the association, Okhue Obo who stated this in a statement, assured the President-elect of a peaceful inauguration, warning those plotting to scuttle the event to desist.

The statement reads partly, “There is no reason for Tinubu to be afraid because all the campaigns of calumny mounted against him are mere threats.

“We are currently making efforts to clean and detoxify the Abuja environment where Tinubu will operate from”.

Our correspondent gathered that some members of the association stormed Abuja earlier in the week to carry out the proposed cleansing and detoxification.

Reacting to the development, Enenche who spoke on Friday night during the just concluded Destiny Recovery Convention, dared the witches and wizards, saying “we are in charge here”.

The fiery man of God instructed other clergymen to anoint strategic places in the city as a spiritual battle against other forces.

He said, “There are some agents of the devil that said they are coming to cleanse this city.

“Anybody who is from the devil, sent from the pit of hell that enters this city to plant any agenda of hell, if they are not cut off then we have no right to preach.

“Every witches and bitches, lizards and wizards, Hey! We are serving you notice to let you know we are in charge here and we are not about to change our minds.

“Pastors, we are going to take prophetic action in this city within the next 24 hours. Carry bottles of oil and go through the territory, anoint the ground and pour oil on this ground.

Every agent of the devil who steps on this ground for a demonic agenda is a dead agent.

“Every agent of the devil who steps into the city for the sake of Satan the devil, as we pour the fire on the earth, if they trample on this earth and still survive, we are not serving the living God.”
