He appealed to the governor to speed-up assistance for Christians who are willing to go for the Holy exercise but lacks the financial will, while calling on well-meaning Nigerians to assist the Christian Pilgrim Welfare Board with funds to cater for more interested persons.
Oladunjoye, who noted the roles of Christians in nation building, maintained that such delicate body of Christ must be treated with dignity in the society.
Speaking on the forthcoming general elections, he advised that Nigerians could trust God for good representatives.
Oladunjoye, who decried votes buying and selling of the Permanent Voter cards, PVCs, called on the Independent National Electoral Commissioner, INEC and relevant security agencies to apprehend and prosecute anyone caught engaging in such criminal acts.
