As part of the celebration of the Easter to mark the death and ressurrection of Jesus Christ, the Choir and Orchestra of the Apostolic Faith Church WECA will tomorrow flag off a 3-day Easter retreat. The retreat comprising a musical concert is tagged; “Assurance of the Harvest of the Saints”.

According to the District Superintendent of the church, Rev. Bayo Adeniran, the Easter musical concert is one of the several programmes being organised by the church to remind the people about the second coming of Jesus Christ.

Adeniran, who was addressing newsmen, said the musical concert will be a two-hour musical display in which Surprise symphony by John Haydn, Sonata in D Major by W.A Mozart, works of George Fredrich Handel and other local and Eastertide music will all be performed by the church choir, Africa’s single biggest orchestra. The man of God used the occasion to implore Nigerians not to relent in their prayers for the nation, especially for the success of the ongoing election and for peace and unity to reign in Nigeria. He prayed against wastage of innocent lives through sectarian crises, communal wars and religious violence which are rampant in some parts of the nation.

Rev. Adeniran noted that for Nigeria to be a better society, there is need for both the leaders and the elderly ones among us to showcase good moral values to the coming generation. He also advised government to embark on programmes that will convey good morals to the youths, stressing that without godliness the younger generation cannot exhibit good character. according to him, corruption starts from inside.

Said he: “We should show good example to our young ones. For a better society that we are all clamouring for, both leaders and the followers should embrace Godliness and if our inward character is not holy, there is nothing we can do to change the society. And if we do otherwise, we are kicking against God’s command-ments.”
