RCCG tasks Nigerian youths on nation-building

By Olayinka Latona
THE Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, has charged Nigerian youths
not to yield them-selves as tools for violent disruptions of the society, but
rather be agents of nation-building.
Special Assistant to the General Overseer of RCCG, on Young Adult & Youth,
Pastor Peter Amenkhie-nan made the appeal while addressing newsmen
ahead of this year’s National Youth Convention of the church tagged: ‘Agents
of Trans-formation’, scheduled for October 2-7 at the Redemption Camp.
Speaking through the Pastor-in-charge of Nation-al Young Adult & Youth
Affairs of RCCG, Pastor Precious Akingbade, the SATGO said despite the
adverse economic challenges confronting the country, youths could still
make positive impact on the country without being aggressive.
The cleric appealed to the youth to be watchful and guide against all forms
of indoctrination by evil minded persons to perpetrate evil, which have
negative consequences on the country and their future.
In his words: “We do not believe in aggressive agitations but result-oriented
ones because no system argues on result. Once you have the result, naturally
it will open doors of opportunities for you.
“Current generation of youth should prove them-selves, get the result on the
table and with that, convince the older generation that they are actually
ready to take the mantle of leader-ship in our nation.
“Once you are given the opportunity, prove your worth and that will speak for
you. Be diligent in the little you are doing in your corner or your space of
influence and be consistent, very soon your testimony will spread, somebody
will spot you and recommend you,” the cleric counselled.
On the convention, Amen-khienan promised that the week-long event will
feat-ure a variety of activities including entrepreneurial and empowerment
semin-ars, Bible study sessions, talk shows, drama and musical presentations, prayer sessions and others.
He added that each session will be anchored by seasoned speakers and
leaders including the General Overseer, Pastor Enoch Adeboye and several
captains of industry.
