Christians working and living inside Aso Rock Presidential Villa, Abuja, led by Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, have offered special prayer for the return of President Muhammadu Buhari to Nigeria.
At a special service today, Sunday, held at the Aso Villa Chapel, the church was agog with praise singing and celebration. The church sang various songs in Hausa, Ibo and Yoruba languages.
The Villa Chapel’s Administrator, Rev Isaac Ambi, who presided over the service, said the church was happy that the president had a safe return.
“We want to rejoice with our father, Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, for the safe return of our President and our father, Muhammadu Buhari. And we also want to thank God on how he has used you in piloting the affairs of Nigeria while the president was away.”
Also speaking, Professor Durosinmi Etti, asked the worshipers to celebrate the Lord for what he has done in the president’s life.
He rendered the popular song: “What shall we say unto the Lord, All we have to say is thank you Lord..,” to rejoice with the president.
Prayers of thanksgiving were also offered in the three major languages by the immediate-past Chairman of the Federal Civil Service Commission (FCSC), Deaconess Juan Ayo; Reverend Ambi and Mr King Opuru.
A special ministration with the title: “All Things are Working for My Good” was also rendered by the choir to honour the Lord for spearing President Buhari’s life.
In his sermon entitled: “What is New for a Christian,” the church Administrator, Rev Ambi, who spoke from John 15:1-11 and Psalm 23, urged everyone who has accepted Jesus Christ as one’s Lord and Saviour to continue to live one’s life according to the dictate of Christ.
“A Christian life is a matter of relationship; knowing the rules and the regulation. So what is your relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ? We are supposed to have a kind of relationship that draws our strength from Jesus Christ.”
Wife of the Acting President, Mrs. Dolapo Osinbajo; the Chaplain of the Aso Villa Chapel, Pastor Seyi Malomo and his wife, were not at the service.
