In his acceptance speech after his Investiture as the Visitor, on Friday, Pastor Oladele, quoting Isaiah 43:18,19: “do not remember the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert” said: “From today, new and greater things will begin to happen in JABU and in our Church in the name of Jesus. There will be spiritual upliftment and financial breakthroughs for all our members in the Church and for every staff and student in the university.
