As part of the activities marking Nigeria’s 61st Independence Day, vice president Professor Yemi Osinbajo and General Overseer of the Redeemed Evangelical Mission, Bishop Mike Okonkwo, will lead other notable clerics in the country in a seven-hour praise and prayer session on October 1.
The programme with the theme, “Yoda Paga” is an interdenominational prayer session that will hold at the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Strong Tower Sanctuary, Ogudu, Lagos.
Nigerian Tribune gathered that Professor Osinbajo will lead a prayer session for the well-being of the country.
Other speakers at the event include Intercontinental Evangelist of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, (RCCG), Pastor JT Kalejaiye; the General Overseer and Vision Pioneer Throneroom (Trust) Ministry, Kafanchan, Kaduna, Apostle Emmanuel Kure; National/International Coordinator (NIC), Christian Pentecostal Mission International (CPM), Reverend Dr Mercy Ezekiel; the Chairman, immediate past chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Lagos State, Apostle Alexander Bamgbala; Pastor of Trinity House Church, Ituah Ighodalo and Founder/Senior Pastor of the Christ Livingspring Apostolic Ministry (CLAM), Wole Oladiyun.
According to one of the co-ordinators and host pastor of RCCG Lagos Province 19, Pastor Bisi Olowoyo, the vision was birthed as a result of the unrest and the state of insecurity in the country hence a mandate from God to raise an altar of praise and prayer called Yoda Paga, which in Hebrew means praise and intercession.
The convener, Pastor Bukola Olubona, noted that the interdenominational prayer session was initiated to invoke the power of God upon the nation Nigeria, adding that, “God bless all our efforts in making sure that this great vision is a reality,” she said.
Pastor Olubona added that the programme will also witness musical ministrations from Buchi, Mike Abdul, Chigozie Wisdom, Aity Dennis, Tope Alabi, BJ Sax, Shola Sax, Kunle Ajayi, Funke Akinokun, Kingsley Ike, Tosin Alao, and Bukola Olubona ( Oyigiyigi).
