Nigerians have been assured of God’s divine restoration, provided they obey His injunctions, as prescribed in His 10 Commandments. They have also been enjoined to help one another with their God-given resources, as a way of expanding God’s kingdom on earth.

This was the admonition of the Bishop of United African Methodist Evangelical Church, Abule Ijesha, Yaba, Lagos, Rt. Rev Zaccheus Sanyaolu, in his sermon delivered during the 2020 Adult Harvest Thanksgiving Service, with the Theme, ‘Gracious Restoration.’

The cleric, who lamented the ungodly behaviour being perpetrated nationwide, such as rape, kidnapping and the worsening insecurity, called on Nigerians, irrespective of their creed, to repent and do the needful.


Sanyaolu urged Nigerians to always thank God for His faithfulness/mercy and for being alive in spite of the COVID-19 pandemic. He called on the political class to govern the nation with the fear of God, knowing that they will give account of their stewardship to God at the end of the day.

At the event were the Principal, Federal Government College, Odogbolu, Mr. Amos Akinpelu; Bursar, Mr. Edimeh John Al Hassan; Baba Ijo, Lt. Gen Oladipo Diya (rtd), as the host; Mama Ijo, Elder Chief Mrs. Mabel Kehinde Komolafe; Otun Iya Ijo, Elder Chief Mrs. Patience Adeleke and 2020 Adult Harvest Thanksgiving Service Planning committee members, among other dignitaries.
