ABUJA – Acting Chaplain of Aso Villa Chapel, Pastor Joseph Sheyi Malomo on Sunday refuted claims in some quarters that the chapel had been closed down by the presidency.
Referring the speculation as the handiwork of mischief makers, Malomo stated that at no time was the worship center shut down.
The chaplain spoke against the backdrop of some online reports that President Muhammadu Buhari ordered the closure of the place which is close to his official residence.
Malomo who spoke after the church service on Sunday however admitted that there were some procedural issues last Sunday that needed to be sorted out.
He urged Nigerians to ignore the rumour, even as he called for greater emphasis on issues that would entrench unity among Nigerians.
Preaching earlier on a topic titled ‘Securing the glorious destiny of out posterity’, Malomo explained that Nigeria has a glorious destiny that is unique.
The first bible reading was taken from 2 Samuel 3:1-3 while the second was taken from Job 1:1-5 and Psalm 139 from verse 14 and 15.
Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, a Redeemed Christain Church pastor who is seen as the chief worshiper in the place was however not present at the Sunday service.
Sources said he hasn’t been consistent with worships at the venue since his assumption of office on May 29.
