He stressed that they were the first Christian Pilgrims Welfare Board in the country to pay him a courtesy visit since his assumption of office on 5th, Feb 2024 which coincidentally marks his first month in office today. In his words, “it is commendable and expected being the landlord of NCPC”.

The NCPC helmsman intimated his guests that they should all live as one and be their brother’s keeper, according to him, “we should guard Nigeria jealously and embrace peace, when there is peace we talk of pilgrimage, but when there is trouble you talk of survival’. In his words, ‘our task is beyond pilgrimage, we are to ensure we foster peaceful coexistence among Nigerians and people of other faith”.
