The Supreme Council, had, on Wednesday, sent a delegation headed by Pastor Henry Ojo, to the 2017 CAC worldwide Pastors’ Conference, at Ikeji-Arakeji, on the crisis and commended the Pastor Abraham Akinosun-led leadership on its efforts at putting an end to the crisis and achieving final reconciliation, while Pastor Paul Obadare of the World Soul Winning Evangelical Ministry (WOSEM), also came under the leadership of WOSEM and made critical input towards ending the conflict.
The leader of the delegation, Pastor Joe Jacob, on the occasion, commended the Pastor G.O. Lagunju-led Supreme Council on the final reconciliation move and the integration of all members of the church.
