GOVERNOR OBIANO LAUDS NCPC BOSS

The Executive Governor of Anambra State, His Excellency, Governor Willie Obiano has lauded the Executive

The Executive Governor of Anambra State, His Excellency, Governor Willie Obiano has lauded the Executive Secretary of the Nigerian Christian Pilgrim Commission (NCPC), Mr. John Kennedy Opara, for the new innovations which he has brought to bear in the Commission, especially the introduction of the Christian Pilgrimage lottery scheme. He made this commendation recently during a sensitization visit by the NCPC boss and his team to the State.

He assured the Executive Secretary of his maximum support towards the self sustenance drive of the Commission and thanked him for his visit to Anambra state.

Earlier, the Executive Secretary of the Nigerian Christian Pilgrim Commission (NCPC), Mr. John Kennedy Opara, congratulated the Governor on his 60th birthday and commended him for how he has transformed Anambra State. In his words, “you don’t have the financial capacity, but you have the human capacity which has helped you transform the state”. He added that it takes only a man with God’s grace and honor to achieve such fits as he has achieved in the State.

Speaking further, the NCPC boss reinstated that the Commission uses pilgrimage as a tool for moral transformation and spiritual rebirth. He informed his host about the four pilgrimage programmes of the Commission which runs yearly: The Easter pilgrimage, Family pilgrimage, main pilgrimage and the youth pilgrimage which was launched this year. He posited that the need to catch our children young was the brain behind the youth pilgrimage. He intimated that the youth pilgrimage was flagged off on the 25th of August at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.

He informed that skill acquisition was included into pilgrims’ activities as a way of ensuring that the Commission creates jobs for youths. He further informed that over one thousand youths embarked on pilgrimage this year and family pilgrimage was flagged off yesterday, 11th August, 2015.

Mr. Opara stated that due to paucity of funds, the Commission is currently partnering with the National Lottery Regulatory Commission (NLRC), which is targeted towards encouraging those who are spiritually rich but materially poor to go on pilgrimage with little or no cost.

He encouraged the Governor to partner with the Commission to educate well meaning Nigerians to sponsor Christians on Holy pilgrimage.

He thanked the Governor for receiving him and his team and for sponsoring pilgrims last year on pilgrimage to Israel.
