The Senior Pastor of Union Baptist Church, Ekotedo, Ibadan, Rev. Jonathan Babalola, on Sunday told Nigerians to be prepared for more changes during the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.


Babalola, who said this at the 70th anniversary of the church, also urged politicians to shun all forms of corrupt practices and embrace the fight against corruption.

He said that politicians were supposed to be good examples to members of the public, urging them to apply the teachings in churches and mosques to all aspects of their lives.

Babalola said that the constitution of the church, which was recently launched, was meant to guide the leadership in the administration of the church.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the church had been in existence since Jan. 1, 1945.

NAN also reports that the anniversary started on Sept. 13 with various activities such as medical test and visitation to orphanages while awards were presented to those who had contributed to the growth of the church.

‎Among the beneficiaries was Rev. Samuel Oladitan, a 96-year-old cleric, who served in the church between 1988 and 1994.

The anniversary also witnessed a fund-raising for the development of the church. (NAN)
