Wale Oyewale with agency reports
HEAVY traffic was witnessed in many parts of Ibadan on Monday as the Redeemed Christian Church of God held its 2019 Let’s Goa-fishing 2019 Crusade at the Obafemi Awolowo Stadium.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria, Obafemi Awolowo Way, Ring Road, Challenge-molete Road and NTC Road were mostly affected.
Some of the worshippers, who came from different parts of the city and other parts of Oyo State, trekked to the venue for the programme as a result of the gridlock.
The stadium was filled to capacity with worshippers flocking to see the General Overseer of the church Pastor
Enoch Adeboye who preached during the crusade.
Adeboye called on all Christians to use the opportunity of Christmas to surrender totally to Jesus Christ.
The cleric said, “It doesn’t matter how long you have been sick but all sicknesses and diseases that look impossible can be taken care of by Jesus only if you believe and surrender.
“With Jesus, the one who used to be poor can become rich, the one called barren can become mother of twins and the one who used to be single, can marry.”
Adeboye said he would visit no fewer than 20 places across the country as part of the programme.
He prayed for the sick before mounting the podium.
He also prayed for Governor Seyi Makinde, the state and the Olubadan of Ibadan, Oba Saliu Adetunji.
On the Olubadan, Adeboye said, “I pray that his last days shall be greater than the former days.”
Describing Ibadan as a special province strategic to the church, Adeboye said, “The last time I was in this stadium was almost 20 years ago. Ibadan is always the first to be in touch after the Holy Ghost Congress when the anointing is still fresh. Ibadan always comes first with a programme.”
Hundreds of people gave their lives to Christ at the event.
Rashidat, wife of the Olubadan of Ibadan; and the state Chairman of the Christian
Association of Nigeria, Pastor Gabriel Akanmu, were present on the occasion.
