Christ Apostolic Church, Remo Districts' Coordinating Council (DCC), Remo, Ogun State witnessed a momentous event on Saturday, November 18, 2023, as Pastor Benjamin Olukayode Alokan was formally inducted as the new Superintendent.

The ceremony which took place at the Christ Apostolic Church, Oke-Isegun, Remo DCC Headquarters, was marked by spiritual fervour, uplifting songs, and words of wisdom as the induction rites were conducted by the Essien Regional Superintendent, Pastor I. Olu Eyebiokin (JP).

Songs were beautifully rendered by the Remo DCC Good Women Association Choir and the Remo DCC Choir, creating an atmosphere of joy and celebration.

The newly inducted Superintendent, Pastor B. O. Alokan who is the son of the third General Evangelist of Christ Apostolic Church, Nigeria and Overseas, Pastor J.O Olu Alokan, carries with him a wealth of experience and a strong ministerial background. 

His extensive service in various capacities includes being the Superintendent of CAC Maraba Zone, Abuja (2012-2016); Superintendent of CAC Agbooba DCC, Ilorin (2016-2018); Superintendent of CAC Kawo DCC, Kaduna (2019-2023). Others outside the walls of the church denomination are, CPFN Secretary in Warri; CPFN Chairman in Nassarawa State; CAN Chairman in Ilorin West, and many more. 

Married to Evang. (Mrs) Deborah Alokan, the first female Students' Union leader of CAC Theological Seminary, Katampe, Abuja, he is currently holding key positions within the Christ Apostolic Church.

Educationally, he holds a doctorate degree in Counselling, attesting to his commitment to continuous learning and personal development. Pastor Alokan has also traveled extensively, visiting countries such as Togo, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Gambia, Egypt, Ethiopia, Turkey, Dubai, Republic of Ireland, United Kingdom, and the United States of America.

In his sermon, titled "Failure in one's duty," from the text, 2 Samuel 11 vs 1-17, the Essien Regional Superintendent, Pastor Olu Eyebiokin described David's action in the text as, "this seemingly innocent decision to stay behind marked the first step on a slippery slope. When we neglect our responsibilities and the paths God has set for us, we open ourselves to vulnerability. David's compromise with duty led him to idleness, and in that idleness, he became susceptible to the cunning schemes of the enemy."

"David's gaze fell upon Bathsheba, bathing on a rooftop. Instead of turning away, resisting the temptation, he allowed desire to consume him. The progression of events reveals a downward spiral: desire, sin, and deception. David not only committed adultery but devised a plan to cover his tracks. Failure in One's duty leads to sin, and sin has a way of entangling us, leading us to further transgressions as we try to mask our initial wrongdoing," he said.

Pastor Eyebiokin emphasized the importance of fulfilling one's responsibilities and making positive impacts wherever one is placed.

The programme concluded with a soul-stirring rendition of "Halleluyah Chorus" by the Remo DCC Choir, leaving the congregation inspired and uplifted.
