What impact did the last Press Conference in Lagos have in the Church?


The Press Conference was the first of its kind in history of the church. It has a conspicuous positive impact on our  evangelical motives  as we were able to reach millions of people across the globe through the conference. More so, we were able  to pass quality inspirational  messages to  the Government and the citizens of our nation. We were delighted such opportunity came. The Lord will continue to bless sponsor of the press conference.


Nigeria just celebrated 61 Years of her existence, what message do you have for the citizens of this nation?


No doubt, many people were not happy as they expected the country to havegrown   beyond   the   present   level.   Nonetheless,   we   enjoined   the   citizens   tocontinue praying for the country and people in governance. We should put ourtrust in God and be hopeful. We are optimistic better days are coming.


What challenges are you currently facing in the running of the Church?


It’s obvious, there are many challenges militating against our moves. There arechallenges and we are not surprised with this. Jesus says offences will come.Luke 17:1.However, we didn’t place priority on those challenges. Rather, we focused onpressing forward as we are not ready to give excuses but we are focusing onproducing results.Counting our challenges is synonymous to placing priority on challenges. Weare poised to count achievement not challenges.

What strategies do you put in place towards tackling the challenges being faced by UACC?


God is our hope. He has solution to all challenges. While we are strategizing,we commit everything into His care. We didn’t focus on the challenges, rather,we focused on God’s promises.


The security situation in  the country   seems  to be stabilizing, what advice would you give to Government on this?


The   little   improvement   in   security   we   observe   was   the   result   of   God’s intervention. We expect Government to be more proactive and shun nepotism.Citizens   are   losing   confidence   in   Governance.   Government   should   do   theneedful in order to have total stability in security of our land.



What is your message to Nigerian youths?


The Youth are heritage of God. The more they realize this, the more they will submit themselves to issues that will only glorify God.We advise our youths to see themselves as elements of positive change in thecountry. They are leaders of tomorrow. Whatever that may contribute to thecollapse of this Country is enemy of our youths. As such the youths should riseand reject such and embrace progressive attitudes
