Speaking at the event, coordinator of CAN in Onigbongbo LCDA chapter, Pastor Gift Peters, said the aim was to gather people who are out to worship God in truth and in spirit, which is an activity of the chapter.

He said: “We decided to award these worthy fellows for their performance, encouragement and contribution to the Christian body, not just in our LCDA but in Lagos State and Nigeria as a whole.”

On the theme, which was taken from (Psalm 47:8), Peters said, “God reigns in our lives, businesses, churches and in Nigeria. We are in a transition in this country and in all, God reigns and will see us through it all. We depend on Him to choose leaders for our nation. There should be no religious sentiments in this; we only need the will of God not the will of man.”
