The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye is expected to be in Nasarawa State this month.
The renowned Christian cleric is said to be organizing a crusade in the state as a means of gathering people to pray for the peace of the state.
Naija News understands that lots of lives have been reportedly lost in Nasarawa lately.
Many have been kidnapped, rendered homeless, made widows and orphans following incessant attacks by bandit terrorists operating in the area.
In the face of these, Pastor Adeboye, according to reports, would be in Nasarawa State to offer prayers to God on behalf of the state and Nigeria at large.
The crusade is reportedly tagged ‘Light UP Nasarawa’ and would be held on May 13, 2022, at the Science School, Lafia.
Confirming the upcoming programme, Pastor-in-Charge of RCCG Nasarawa Province 2, James Adegbite, said they were confident that the visit of the General Overseer would bring an end to the killings.
“Nigerians have been facing issues of insecurity, poverty, unemployment, outbreak of diseases and other challenges but I strongly believe that when prayers are offered to God, he will intervene in our situation and restore all that we have lost,” Pastor Adegbite told The PUNCH.
He added: “Whenever you hear of insurgency, communal clashes, breakdown in the society, it is probably because some of us have not been talking to God about our situation. So, our father in the Lord, who recently clocked 80 years old, has deem it fit to take up the responsibility through prayers.
“The General Overseer has been lending his voice to issues confronting the nation but he believes that complaining alone would not proffer solutions to our problems, that was why he decided to organise the Light UP Crusade taking place on the 13th of this month here in Lafia, the Nasarawa State capital.
“He will also be going to other states in the country in this month of May to hold crusade because Nigeria has to experience steady growth and progress.
“So, I am urging everyone in Nasarawa State and other neighbouring states to join us as we pray for our country.”
Naija News recalls that Pastor Adeboye had, on January 1, 2022, at his church in Ogun State, requested 1,000 prayer warriors to join him in praying for Nigeria because of the numerous challenges facing the nation.
