By Bayo Aka
The Lord Bishop of Akoko Diocese, The Rt Rev’d Jacob Olajide Babajide Bada has called on the people of Okunland to be United, stressing that lack of unity and divisive tendencies have been responsible for the visible lack of progress in the former Kabba Province.
Bishop Jacob Bada made this call at the first session of the 10th Synod of Kabba Diocese Church of Nigeria which was held at the Cathedral Church of St Andrew’s Kabba.
He attributed developments and progress in other communities to the deep thinking of elders and stakeholders in such communities, painting out that Okun people should brainstorm and think of the way forward.
The cleric who quoted from the book of Psalm 133 , said the Bible supports the unity of a group of people, stressing that Okun people should work together and divisive and clanish tendencies.
While congratulating Kabba people for the establishment of Kogi State University Kabba in Kabba, he urged them to shun idolatory worshipping which he said could have deprived the area of needed developments .
The Bishop who had earlier extensively dwelt on teaching the theme of the synod which is “the power and benefits of the Eucharist to the believer”, urged the communicants to go out and win souls for Christ, saying ” we are saved to save others “.
He stressed the need for communicants to bring others to the kingdom of God.
The three-, day synod which gave the churches in the diocese , the laity and the clergy, the opportunity to make far reaching decisions on the way forward for the progress of the diocese as well as the reading and launching of the President of the synod and Bishop of Anglican Diocese of Kabba, The Rt Rev’d Steven Kayode Akobe’s charge, ended with a thanksgiving.
