Cleric makes case for indigents, tasks Christians

By Oboh Agbonkhese

The Senior Pastor of Praise Arena-Kingdom Light Christian Centre, Pastor Jummy Adetoyese-Olagunju, has said: “Christianity is not just a religion but a way of life, practical application of Bible principles on daily basis and how it connects to the way every individual is expected to behave in the society.”

He spoke during the graduation thanksgiving of Barrister Adesola Ajayi, a visually-impaired attorney and one of the many beneficiaries of the church’s scholarship programme, who graduated from Law School last December.

Pastor Adetoyese-Olagunju appealed to well-meaning individuals, organisations, parastatal and government institutions to provide  employment opportunity to the disabled and physically-challenged, but qualified people, such as Adesola Ajayi.

While appreciating the Church and Pastor Adetoyese-Olagunju in particular, Mr. Ajayi said when he went blind life became unbearable until he reached out to Pastor Adetoyese-Olagunju “through his Kingdom Life Family programme on Eko FM.”

Ajayi, who said he read law “so I can be a voice for the voiceless, defenseless and the vulnerable people in the society,” thanked Lagos State Government for enacting the Special People’s Law, 2011, aimed at protecting the rights of people living with disabilities, but noted that the enforcement is poor.
