Nigerian youths have urged to get their Permanent Voters Card (PVC) so as to be able to choose Godfearing leaders in 2019 year.
The Provincial Youth Pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Kwara province 1, Pastor Bode Adewara gave the chat during a media chat on sideline of the 2018 Annual Convention of Young Adults and youths in Ilorin on Wednesday.
Speaking through the Youth President of the province, Pastor Oluwatosin Babatunde on theme of the programme ‘ The power of purpose,’ stressed the need for youths to cast their votes for the right people to get into elective offices.
He, however, said, ” The choice of this year’s theme is that youths should discover their purpose early in life and it will help them and bring succour to the country.
“Purpose here simply means the reason God created you; because nobody is born by accident. I believe that after the programme people that are yet to discover their purpose will discover it.
“People who have discovered their purpose in life but lose it due to ignorance and distractions such as social vices, political thuggery, cultism, among others, will through this programme have orientation of whom they are.
“We are trusting God that they will derive physical and spiritual impact from the event. This will reduce the evil vices in the country.
“Part of discovering our purpose is for us to get our PVC to choose a purposeful leader. In this country we need a purposeful leader
According to him, the programme will commence with Holy Ghost Service on last Friday of the month by 4pm at RCCG City of Refuge opposite Omosebi Hospital, Gaa- Akanbi area.
The pastor noted that seasoned men of God will be ministering at the programme and Thanksgiving will be held in all parishes on Sunday to mark end of the convention.
He added that aside spiritual programmes they also embark on reaching out to underprivileged people in the society such as orphanage home, prison, hospitals among others as part of the church’s corporate social responsibilities.
