    EMMANUEL Awotunde, president of Lagos East Baptist Conference, has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to intensify efforts on security.

    Awotunde said this at a media briefing held at the conference secretariat, Obanikoro, Lagos, to announce the Conference’s Kingdom Life Assembly, an annual gathering of the church in Lagos East, holding at First Baptist Church, Agbowa, Ikorodu, between August 25 and August 29, 209.

    He said Christians would continue to pray for God to touch the hearts of those perpetrating evil, appealing to the government too to step up efforts to free kidnapped victims, especially Elisha Numan, pastor of Nagarta Baptist Church, Makere, Kaduna.

    Numan was kidnapped two weeks and his abductors are asking for a ransom of N7 million to free him.

    On the forthcoming programme, he said: “The Kingdom Life Assembly’s theme this year is Following Jesus as a Steward while 1 Peter 4:10 is our key verse for the Assembly and it states, “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms,” he said.

    “I’m sure you will agree with me that we cannot have a better theme in this period when some are happy to be called Christians in name alone without corresponding actions and deeds. The church of God cannot and will not, become what the Lord intends for her without every part of the church playing their roles effectively and as the Lord God ordained it to be.”

    Other leaders of the conference at the media briefing include Julius Omomola, the chairman, and Mary Okpomo, a member of the board of trustees. (ThecableNg)
