0

Lagos residents have been urged not to be swayed by activities of hate preachers but enjoined to continue to live in peace and harmony without harbouring ethno-religious sentiments among themselves.

The call was made at the weekend by the chairman of the Lagos state chapter of the Cherubim & Seraphim Unification Church of Nigeria, Snr. Supt. Apostle Johnson Adagba, during the induction of new executives of the chapter at the C&S Church of Christ ‘The Worshippers,’ Iponri.

Adagba, who commended Lagos state governor Akinwunwmi Ambode’s effort at making the state a commercial hub in the sub-region, also called on religious leaders in the state to join hands with the state government to promote peace and oneness.

Said he, “We can all see the giant stride of Governor Ambode at making sure that Lagos is a no-go area for hate preachers who are hell bent on causing commotion in the country. But we as religious leaders should not allow these distractors to sway us from our goal which is to prepare the way pot the Lord for the salvation of the soul of mankind.

As a church in Lagos State, we shall continue to encourage religious harmony among people living in the state.

Among those inducted were Special Apostle Segun Adio, Vice Chairman, Evang Dr. Rotimi Odugbesan, General Secretary and Apostle Femi Akinpelu, Treasurer.
