Industrialist and the Atayero of Aramoko Ekiti, Dr Olusegun Aderemi, has said that the four-day crusade tagged, Holy Ghost and Fire African Tour, holding in Aramoko Ekiti between Monday 4th and Thursday 6th September is targeted at praying for solutions to Nigeria’s problems so that the country and its citizens can enjoy prosperity and good lives.
Aderemi, who is the host, said the programme would also be an opportunity for Nigerians especially Ekiti people and Aramoko indigenes to learn how to develop business ideas, how to do business and as well empower some people.
The four-day crusade with the theme, ‘Ekiti Kingdom for Christ’, holding at Glory School, Aramoko Ekiti, where renowned world evangelist, Dr Rodney Howard-Browne from Florida, will minister, was organised in conjunction with the Christian Association of Nigeria in Ekiti State led by Dr Emmanuel Aribasoye.
The Atayero, who spoke at Aramoko Ekiti during a press conference heralding the events, said that the crusade was to turn people’s hearts to God; offer prayers for individuals, organisations, Ekiti State and the country; teach people business sense; and as well empower some people.
He said, “Prayers will be offered for our country. Nigeria needs prayers. The situation in the country is beyond human comprehension. We need God’s intervention. When you don’t have solutions to your problem, you call on God. That is one of the highpoints of the crusade”.
Atayero said that traditional rulers, clergymen and notable Nigerians from the state and beyond had shown intention to attend the crusade.
The business mogul, who said businesses that succeed and are sustainable have the hand of God, said that at the business sessions of the four-day programme, “We will teach people how to do business in Godly way and how to embrace interpreneurship where individuals will have business ideas”.
He said that the programme would also feature distribution of palliatives to the participants, saying, “We have empowerment for widows and some wives of clergymen wives, we have palliatives for all.
“Part of the palliatives will be distribution of solar powered light and others just to help people . For the number of days participants will go home with something “, he said.
The Atayero assured of proper security arrangements for lives and properties during the crusade.
