The Executive Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode while receiving the Executive Secretary of Nigerian Christian Pilgrim Commission (NCPC), Mr. John Kennedy Opara and his team who were on a sensitization visit to Lagos state has disclosed that the State would constitute its Christian Pilgrim Welfare Board in few days time in order to ensure that citizens of the State benefit from the tremendous innovations of the Nigerian Christian Pilgrim Commission in the 2015 pilgrimage exercise. In his words, “We will not leave any stone unturned to ensure that we support you and the board here”.

 He affirmed that Lagos state had been a cooperative partner of the NCPC over the years and the Commission had brought much value to the Lagos state through its pilgrimage programmes, adding that pilgrimage is a life changing experience worthy of performing as it fulfills an individual’s Christian life.

The Governor commended NCPC and its leadership for the high level of organization it has always maintained in all pilgrimage exercises.

He assured the NCPC boss that he would improve on his support for pilgrimage so that more people from the state can be transformed.

Earlier, the Executive Secretary commended him for being a man of vision and for remaining focused on his job. In his words, “your commitment is something people outside admire so much. You are indeed a leader with very rare qualities”.

He intimated the Governor on the four pilgrimage programmes the Commission runs yearly: The Easter pilgrimage, the youth pilgrimage which is designed to catch them young and was launched in July, this year; the Family pilgrimage, and the Main pilgrimage usually held between October/December.

He further stated that skill acquisition programme has been recently introduced to pilgrims’ activities while in the Holy Land, with the aim of empowering the Nigerian youths to be self reliant. He therefore urged the Governor to partner with the Commission to empower the youths in the State.

He informed that the Commission has expanded the scope of pilgrimage to Greece and Rome over the years and would continue to add value to the entire pilgrimage programme.

He explained that the Commission is mindful of the economic situation of the country and thus is partnering with the National Lottery Regulatory Commission to commence a Christian Pilgrimage lottery Scheme to enable many Christians embark on Holy Pilgrimage with little or no cost’ especially now that the Commission strives towards self sustenance.

He affirmed that the Commission uses pilgrimage as a tool for moral transformation and spiritual rebirth, stating that as my Christians as possible that travelled to Israel would come back transformed.

He encouraged the Governor to partner with the Commission and encourage well meaning people in Lagos state to sponsor Christians who are spiritually rich, but materially poor to go on pilgrimage by buying tickets for them to participate in the Lottery Scheme.
