The ministry said the high rate of robbery, cultism, drug abuse and corruption, among other ills, could have totally destroyed the state, but for God’s grace.
The church stated this on Wednesday at Gbagada, Lagos, while announcing a city-wide crusade, organised by the ministry in conjunction with the Christian Association of Nigeria and the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria.
The 20-day event, which is themed, ‘Supernatural Power of God’s Wonders,’ will begin on September 8 and cover 17 local government areas of the state.
The church’s state Moderator, Pastor Joseph Fasanmi, described the event as unprecedented, adding that the ministry’s General Overseer, Pastor W.F. Kumuyi, would be one of the men of God that would minister at the event.
He said, “The crusade will be unprecedented because its geographical spread will cover every nook and cranny of Lagos State, including Ikorodu, Epe and Badagry.”
Fasanmi said the alarming rate of crime in the state necessitated the crusade, adding that despite the change mantra of the present administration, real change remained elusive to the people of Lagos State.
