The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye has admonished Nigerians and those in the position of authority to distance themselves from sins and all forms of ungodliness but to maintain perfect relationship with their Creator.
Pastor Adeboye gave the admonition during the annual Christmas Carol Service organised by the Oyo State Government at the Agodi Resorts and Conferences, Ibadan at the week-end.
The General Overseer described Jesus Christ as the harbinger of good news to the world, stressing that His birth had brought freedom to those in bondage and salvation to the sinners.
The cleric, in his sermon entitled “For unto us a Child is Born’’ said that the birth of Christ was meant to liberate the world.
He seized the occasion to bless the state and the people from all walks of life who attended the service.
In his own remarks, the Oyo State Governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi described Christmas as tenderness for the past, courage for the present and hope for the future.
While reiterating his belief in the imagination of possibility, he called on the people to live with the fire of possibility, stating that his vision was to make Oyo one of the best states in Nigeria.
The first reading of the Carol Service was taken by the Deputy Governor, Chief Moses Alake Adeyemo while the second was taken by the wife of the governor, Chief (Mrs.) Florence Ajimobi.
The occasion also witnessed an assemblage of men of God from several churches across the state.
