PILGRIMAGE HAS COME A LONG WAY IN NIGERIA – FCT MINISTER

The Hon. Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Mohammad Musa Bello has said that pilgrimage has come a long away in Nigeria. He made this disclosure in Abuja while receiving the Executive Secretary of the Nigerian Christian pilgrim Commission (NCPC), John Kennedy Opara and his board in his office.

The Hon. Minister was sanguined that the Commission would be able to surmount all its challenges considering the magnitude of the challenges it was able to overcome, especially in its teething years. According to him: “there is no doubt your organization has grown tremendously in spite of the challenges you mentioned, the Lord that saw you through all these years will see you through”.

The Minister promised to support all the programmes of the Commission. His words: “whatever we will do to support your organization we will do so”.

He affirmed that with the revolutionary ideas of the NCPC boss, he would be able to fund all the pilgrimage programmes of the Commission.  His words, “you will continue to wax stronger and stronger considering the fact that you have been able to empower yourself professionally to deal with the task ahead”.

Mohammad Bello also called on all Christians in the Territory to support the FCT administration in order to make the city an ideal city for everyone to live in.

Earlier, the Executive Secretary of NCPC, John Kennedy Opara thanked his host for the sacrifice he made for the Commission in its early stage of existence. According to him: “your sacrifice made NCPC possible”. He added, “You provided me the platform, you gave me hope, you gave me confidence”.

He thanked Mr. President for bringing him as FCT Minister at a time like this. According to the NCPC boss: “I believe that every one of us should be able to learn under your tutelage”.

NCPC boss informed the FCT Minister who held sway at the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) for eight years, that the Commission now runs four pilgrimages in one calendar year.

Mr. Opara hinted that the Commission would launch its maiden Win a Trip to Israel in February, 2016. According to him, when it is launched it would afford Christians who are able to win through a raffle draw to go on pilgrimage with no cost to the Federal or state government.

He stressed that the Commission is using pilgrimage as a tool for moral transformation and spiritual rebirth. His words: “we cannot achieve change, expcet the change begins from us”.
