SPEAKER HOUSE OF REPS PROMISES SUPPORT FOR THE SUSTENANCE OF CHRISTIAN PILGRIMAGE

The Speaker, House of Assembly, Hon. Yakubu Dogara called on Government to support and sustain Agencies

The Speaker, House of Assembly, Hon. Yakubu Dogara called on Government to support and sustain Agencies responsible for pilgrimage to the Holy Land. He disclosed this recently in his office while playing host to the Executive Secretary of the Nigerian Christian Pilgrim Commission, John Kennedy Opara and members of the Board of NCPC who were on a courtesy visit to the speaker. According to the Honourable speaker, “The  platform created by both Commissions – NCPC and National Hajj Commission of Nigeria should be maintained by Government to continue to provide the platform for the coordination of Nigerian citizens who desire to go on Holy pilgrimage to pray.

The Speaker further affirmed, “I sincerely believe there is need for pilgrimage, because there is room for prayer”

The speaker who has made history as the first speaker of the House of Representatives of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to embark on Christian Pilgrimage and led the delegation to Israel said, “If we want God to intervene in our situation, the only instrument is prayer”. He stressed that he participated in the third edition of “A Day with Jesus in Israel for Nigerians” last year because of his faith in God and his belief in the efficacy of prayer.

Hon Dogara described the transformation in NCPC as “Uncommon”. He stated that he had already keyed into the youth empowerment skill acquisition scheme of the Commission. His words, “You cannot successfully dominate the earth without skill”

Earlier, the Executive Secretary of NCPC, John Kennedy Opara, described the speaker as a man of vision and focus who has continually added value to anything he does.

Mr. Opara stated that by the speaker’s visit to Israel, Nigeria will certainly be blessed, quoting from Zachariah 8:22.

He informed the Speaker about the four pilgrimage programmes of the Commission which include the Easter, Youth, Family and main pilgrimage, which run within one calendar year. He revealed that the Skill Acquisition programme of the Commission was introduced to all the pilgrimage programmes of the Commission to enable the pilgrims have basic knowledge of Israel.

The NCPC Boss also informed his host that the introduction of Christian Pilgrimage Lottery Scheme by the Commission would help to sustain the Commission and the pilgrimage programmes. He added that it would make pilgrimage affordable.

He further informed the Speaker that the Commission would build a mini- Israel in Nigeria to help in its sustenance drive. He canvassed for the support of the Speaker by being the mouth piece of the Commission in the evangelization of the activities of the Commission.

The Executive Secretary was accompanied on the courtesy visit by all the Board members of the Commission and some management staff.
