Yuletide: Gov Abiodun calls for moderate celebrations

 

 

 

 

Abiodun made the appeal at the Christmas Carol and Service of Nine Lessons held on Thursday evening at the June 12 Cultural Centre, Kuto, Abeokuta.

 

 

 

 

 

He said the season calls for joyful celebration, people should make moderation their watchword.

“The last two years have been turbulent in the state, country and the whole world. Events made it look like the world was coming to an end. We should count ourselves lucky to be alive and be thankful to God.

“It is a month to be graceful to God for sparing our lives. Please celebrate with care and share with the less privileged, and the joy of the season will continue to radiate in our lives”, the governor said.

He stressed that his administration would continue to deliver dividends of democracy through transformational projects such as roads, security, transportation, health among others.

The governor said that the Gateway City Gate at Sagamu Interchange which serves as icon that represents the state has been completed and ready for commissioning just as other legacy projects that have been completed or ongoing in other parts of the state.

Abiodun, who promised to turn around the fortune of the state for good, added that his administration would continue to provide affordable housing, quality health care services and conducive business environment for more investment opportunities to berth in Ogun.

He, however, noted that the rate of COVID-19 infection in the state was on the rise, appealing to those who are yet to be vaccinated to do so.

He also urged the people to continue to observe the safety protocols by wearing their face masks, wash their hands frequently and avoid crowded places.

In his sermon titled, “Emmanuel”, the General Overseer, Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, declared that with God, the country would overcome its present challenges since God is in control.

Adeboye who took his texts from Matthew 1:18-23, stressed that “when God arises, no problem can persist”, assuring that Nigeria’s present challenges would be a thing of the past in the New Year.

Pastor Adeboye

Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, the general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, has reflected on his ordeal after he lost one of his sons, Dare Adeboye.

 

Dare Adeboye, the son of the clergy, was also a pastor of RCCG in Eket, Akwa Ibom State. He died in his sleep in May 2021.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Daddy GO, as he is fondly called, spoke about his ordeal on Tuesday night, during the 70th Annual Convention of the church, along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

The programme with the theme, ‘Perfect Jubilee’, began on Monday, August 8th and would last through Sunday, August 14th, 2022.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The preacher spoke on the second day of the programme on the topic, ‘Born Free’, and said God carries His children who make themselves carryable.

Adeboye said God carried him when he was in the saddest period of his life in May 2021, after the death of his 42-year-old son, Dare.

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Some of you have heard this before: when I was in the saddest period of my life, with so many questions and I know that even in my deep sorrow some people were still laughing at me, I got a text from one of my daughters.

“All she said was: ‘Daddy, let God carry you.’ And that put an end to any problem; it ended my sorrows. It renewed my faith”, he stated.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dare, the third child of 80-year-old Adeboye, died on May 4, 2021, in Eket, Akwa Ibom State, where he was based with his family. He was married to Temiloluwa and they had three daughters before his unfortunate demise. He was the Assistant Pastor in charge of Region (Youth) 35 before his death.
