Go For Prayers, not Pleasure – NCPC Boss Advises Intending Pilgrims

Rev. Dr Yakubu Pam, Executive Secretary Nigerian Christian Pilgrim Commission (NCPC), has urged intending pilgrims to pray for Nigeria and should not seek for pleasure.

According to him,” seek for prayers and not pleasure ,continue to pray for peaceful coexistence of the nation while in the Holy Land”

Rev Pam made the appeal while bidding farewell to about 300 intending pilgrims from Edo and FCT ,with some private sponsored intending pilgrims who departed for Israel and Jordan from the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja on Wednesday, 15th February, 2023.

He also urged them to pray for peaceful and successful elections in the country.

“This is the 7th and last batch before the general elections and I believe you are going to seal up all the prayers other pilgrims and Nigerians have made for the country,” he said.

The Executive Secretary cautioned them against smuggling illicit substances to the Holy land and any act that would tarnish the image of Nigeria.

“You must avoid anything that will tarnish the image of the country while carrying out your spiritual activities in the Holy land,” he added.

The NCPC boss expressed happiness that pilgrims from other States had returned to Nigeria without any negative incident after their visit to the Holy Land.

“I pray you all returned without any single case of abscondment,” Pam said.

In his address, Mr Audu Dabara , Director FCT Christian Pilgrims Welfare Board told the intending pilgrims that the exercise was a path way to eternity and should expect some challenges, but at the end of the spiritual exercise they would have cause to rejoice.

He urged them to be orderly and keep to all rules and pray fervently for a better nation.
