…Unveil the Church slogan as ‘Together we can’

Olushola Okunlade Writes

It was a time of jubilation and thanksgiving to the Almighty God at the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Lagos Province 98 family in Ikorodu, Lagos as they celebrate a month of togetherness as a Province and to mark Nigeria’s 62nd year of Independence with the theme: Together for Good.

The church which was inaugurated by the former Pastor-In-Charge of Region 26, Pastor Nath Adejuwon commenced operation on September 1, 2022, on behalf of the church’s General Overseer, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye with 22 Areas Headquarters which has progressively increased to 29 Area headquarters.

Speaking at the familiarization and appreciation service today, October 1st, 2022, the Pastor in Charge of Lagos Province 98, Pastor Sunday Adeniyi noted that our togetherness as a Province and a Nation is for good. God brought us together as ordained by Himself and for a good purpose.

Pastor Adeniyi in his sermon titled ‘Together for Good’ reading from the book of Psalm 133: 1-3 said how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity, and it is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard. He further explained that it was a divine mystery how God brought us together as Province even though the deal has been sealed but within a short period everything was changed for the better. He admonished members that it is not bad at all for us to be together rather it is for our advantage in Lagos Province 98.

Pastor Sunday told over one thousand congregations in attendance the power behind the element of unity with one vision which always results in unexpected results as in the case of the tower of Babylon. He further encouraged members to depend on God in all the assignments because it is only God that is ever dependable and reliable in times like this.

He also expressed his confidence to members that the sky will be their limit if they can imbibe the following: by working with one another as a team which has a great multiplier effect on the output; effective communication; by working together and labour together which means there shall be a partnership in progress (support and help for everybody) and injury to one, injury to all; by waiting for one another (when we see danger, we alert one another); by witnessing with one another (there shall be a massive and aggressive witness and results within and outside for double expansion of the Province).

Pastor Adeniyi also unveiled the Lagos Province 98 slogan as TOGETHER WE CAN which should be the province slogan to remind members that the above vision can achieve its purpose.

He also used the medium to introduce Provincial Officers/leadership to members: Pastor & Pastor (Mrs) Adegbola Arole, Assistant Pastor in Charge Province (CSR); Pastor & Pastor (Mrs) Paul Oloke Assistant Pastor in Charge Province (Admin); Pastor & Pastor (Mrs) Aigbode, Pastor in Charge (Provincial Church Growth Officer); 6 newly appointed Zonal Pastors (Pastor Adegboyega Orelaja; Pastor Goodluck Omotuyole; Pastor Sam Afe; Pastor Adelaja Sanya; Pastor Adefemi Akinrinmade and Pastor Victor Akindehin); Deaconess Funmi Oni, Provincial Admin Officer, and A/P Deborah Adewale, Accountant; Pastor Kayode Onabole, Provincial Youth Pastor as well as Pastors in Charge of Areas and Parishes to the Church

In his opening prayer, the Pastor in Charge of Zone 3, Pastor Sam Afe prayed unto God for the Province to be a reference point to other Churches as well as to produce additional Provinces in the next two to three years. And also prayed that the Province should be one of the best among Provinces in the country.

The event had in attendance various dignitaries which include the National officers, Pastors in Charge of Zones, Areas, and Parishes, Ministers, Members, and other well-wishers. The church of Jesus Christ is marching on. All glory to God.

Influential Nigerians Collaborate To Support Women And Girls During The 16days Of Activism Campaigns

Olushola Okunlade Writes

Top artists, rising female artists, movement leaders, and influencers join forces with Industry
Nite to fight against gender inequality, and create opportunities for marginalized talents.

On the eve of the 16 days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence, 24th November 2022, Change.org and Industry Nite, founded by Matthew Ohio, will kickstart the 16 days of Activism Campaign to sensitize Nigerians about the issues impacting women and girls in
Nigeria and across the globe.

The two organizations are joined by the United Nations, African Development Bank, and other
impactful organizations including Invictus Africa, founded by Bukola Shonibare, Nordic Hotels, Eyowo, Sanaa Afrika, with support from influencers and creatives such as Blaqbonez, Dija, Alhanislam and goodwill messages from renowned American poets and songwriters like J Ivy, Aja Monet, and Defi.

The expression of power is the fundamental driver of violence against women and girls – this is why advocacy for gender equality is critical if we must exponentially eradicate sexual and
gender-based violence worldwide. Gender equality and gender-based violence emerged as the
largest topics of discussion and decision-maker engagement with over 9 victories in Nigeria via Change.org.

There are several petitions on the platform with a combined supporter base of 500K+ people
that address the issue of child marriage in Nigeria, and sexual harassment accounts for about
25% of all petitions started on our platform,” said Wale Ajiboye, Change.org Nigeria’s Country
Director. Hence, the need for us to take action now.

According to UNWomen, The 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence is an annual
campaign that begins on 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence
against Women, and runs through to International Human Rights Day on 10 December. Led
by civil society, the campaign is supported by the United Nations through the Secretary
General’s UNiTE by 2030 to End Violence against Women initiative. This year, the UN marks 16 Days under the theme “UNiTE! Activism to end violence against women and girls”.

“We are thrilled to be working together on the 16 Days of Activism initiative,” says Matthew
Ohio, Founder of Industry Nite. “Industry Nite has helped many upcoming and successful female artists, including Tiwa Savage and Ayra Starr, over the last 13 years. This month’s show features incredible female talents in music, dance, and spoken word – these creatives will speak on behalf of our women and girls – with the aim of raising awareness”
