By Pastor Ade Alawode

Christ Apostolic Church is in the forefront of pentecostal movement in Nigeria, so said the Vice President of Nigeria, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo. Osinbajo added that only those who want to rewrite history would deny this fact.

The Vice President was speaking while receiving the President of Christ Apostolic Church, Pastor Samuel Olusegun Oladele at his residence in Aso Villa last Saturday.

According to the Vice President, who himself is a Pastor in Redeemed Christian Church of God, CAC signposts pentecostalism in Nigeria and anybody who bothers to study Nigerian Church history, would know that CAC is pioneer in pentecostal Christianity and "I urge the present leadership of the church to do everything to preserve the legacy of the Apostolic foundation of the Church founders."

The Vice President said he was delighted to receive the President of the Church, Pastor Samuel O. Oladele together with his entourage even despite his tight official schedules, because of the high esteem he has for the Church.

He said he was fascinated by the story of how Pastor Oladele was called into the ministry at the age of 14, which makes it 53 years since he answered the call into ministry. 

He said his emergence as President of the Church was divine. He therefore prayed that the Lord would help Pastor Oladele to fulfill His purpose for the Church.

Prof. Osinbajo urged the church to continue to pray for the country to overcome it's present challenges.

Earlier, the President of CAC Nigeria and Overseas, Pastor Samuel Olusegun Oladele had told the Vice President he had been looking forward to see the Vice President to show his appreciation to him for his respect and love for  CAC and it's leadership.

The cleric recalled that the President had visited the Church headquarters in Ibadan in 2018. A few months later, the Vice President also attended the Centenary anniversary celebration of the Church at Ikeji Arakeji and during his (Pastor Oladele's) inauguration as President of the Church, Prof. Osinbajo sent the Chaplain of Aso Villa Chapel, Pastor Malomo to represent him.

Pastor Oladele said he decided to pay courtesy visit to the Vice President to express his appreciation to him for his love.

The Clergyman stated that in line with the vision and mission of CAC which are soul winning and spiritual awakening of the world which the Church hopes to achieve through spiritual worship and prevailing prayers, the Church would not relent in her efforts to pray for the country, it's leadership and it's economic revival.

The Cleric appreciated the Vice President for his efforts and for his integrity as an ambassador of Christ.

He prayed for him to have sound health and success in his endeavours.

  1. Well done sir. The truth I am sure of is that, the Great REVIVAL that will deliver Nigeria and take Nigerians to our promise land will come from CHRIST APOSTOLIC CHURCH. Please our "Babas" the Lord will guide you, try to do something, Nigeria is stinking and sinking in deep darkness. CAC is not only the SIGNPOST but also the BRIDGE to be laid on the BLACK SEA that is hindering Nigeria to her promise land.
