Nigeria’s former president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, Dr. Kingsley Moghalu, and Dr. Siju Iluyomade were amongst top personalities present at the Second International Christian Leadership Colloquium held last Thursday in Lagos, in honour of Pastor Ituah Ighodalo at 61.
Organized by the Triune Foundation with the theme: ‘The African Christian Leadership: Radical Transformation In Unsettled Times,’ personalities, including Chief Olusegun Obasanjo; Vice-Chancellor of the University of Lagos (UNILAG), Prof. Oluwatoyin Ogundipe; Founder of The House On The Rock, Pastor Paul Adefarasin; and Dr. (Mrs.) Siju Iluyomade, challenged Christian leaders on their roles in transforming the nation. While agreeing that leadership is the number one problem facing the country, the discussants however noted that there is a need for radical change in Nigeria, a change that must be propelled by Christian leaders. They urged Christian leaders to show a high level of discipline, wisdom and must be seen walking in the steps of Jesus Christ.
In his remarks, the celebrant, Pastor Ighodalo, urged leaders of the country to come together and decide what is really right for Nigeria. He said, “A few of them have had the opportunity to do great things and they have allowed it to slip through their fingers. So, now is the time for them to restitute and come together and decide on what to do.” Pastor Ighodalo concluded by asking the church to unite and agree that we must have a great nation.
