COVID-19, Not Threat To Us, Convention Will Hold, Apostolic Church Says

Sampson Igwe, President, The Apostolic Church Nigeria, says the raging global pandemic, COVID-19 is not a threat to the church’s forthcoming quadrennial convention.

Mr. Igwe said at a press briefing on Tuesday in Lagos that the church had put in place plans for delegates to observe all the COVID-19 safety protocols.

He said the once-in-four-year convention would hold from February 12 to 14 at the National Headquarters International Convention Grounds, Olorunda in Ketu.

“The global pandemic is no threat to us. The church has put plans in place for delegates to observe all the COVID-19 protocols,” Mr. Igwe noted.

However, he said members across the country were encouraged to join the convention online due to the pandemic. 

At the same time, only delegates would be present at the church’s ground in Lagos.

“Beyond that, the event will be aired live through the church’s cable television, while only delegates from across the country will be at the expansive venue.

“But the beauty of the 2021 convention is the theme, which is ‘I Will Heal Your Land.’ This is not only divine but speaks to the present situation across the globe.

“The cry on the lip of every individual is for God to help put an end to the scourge called COVID-19, which has claimed many lives across the globe. It is really distressing,” the church’s leader added.

Speaking further, Mr. Igwe said the theme, taken from 2 Chronicles 7 vs 14, “is an indication that God is set to put an end to the scourge in the land.”

He explained, “This great promise of God could not have come at any better time than now that our nation and other nations of the world are suffering untold hardships.

“Apart from failing economies orchestrated by the global lockdown of economic activities, there are also cases of attacks, kidnappings, banditry, and rape.”

According to him, the convention will provide a rare opportunity for the church to cry to God to heal the country.
