FOLLOWING poor performances of young persons in terminal public examinations and the decay that has enveloped the nation’s education sector and the need to restore the lost glory of Nigerian educational system, The Redeemed Christian Church of God RCCG, has declared a one-day special prayer/thanksgiving service for the sector, reports Olayinka Latona.
The event with a theme, “Excellent Spirit” is scheduled for Sunday, July 7, at the church headquarters in Ebute Meta, Lagos and will feature the church’s General Overseer, Pastor Enoch Adeboye.
Briefing newsmen at the church’s national headquarters, Pastor Adeboye, who was represented by the Assistant Pastor-in-Charge (Social Responsibility), Pastor Goke Aniyeloye, said the programme will serve as a platform to ask God to revive Nigeria’s educational system and bring back its lost glory.
In his words: “I believe that when lecturers, vice chancellors, rectors, executive vice chancellors, bursars, registrars and provosts of all higher institutions including universities, colleges of education, polytechnics attend this programme and the Lord impart the excellent spirit in them, like Daniel, they can restore the lost glory of the nation. “In the programme, they will be empowered because God is the custodian of excellent spirit,” he explained.
