4th batch of 2022 Pilgrims airlifted

The fourth Batch of the 2022 Christian Pilgrims from Akwa-Ibom and Delta States to Israel and Jordan have been airlifted at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.

Addressing the Pilgrims shortly before their departure, the Executive Secretary of the Nigeria Christian Pilgrims Commission, NCPC, Reverend Yakubu Pam, charged the Pilgrims to be good ambassadors of Nigeria and the Christian faith.

Reverend Pam also called on the Pilgrims while in the holy land to pray for the peaceful and successful conduct of the 2023 general elections.

The NCPC Executive Secretary also added that as citizens go to the polls to vote for the candidates of their choice, they should be more concerned about the leaders that would strengthen the unity of the country even after elections.

Reverend Yakubu Pam urged the Pilgrims to be well-behaved and not to tarnish the image of the country while carrying out spiritual activities in the holy land.

The Pilgrims are expected to return to Nigeria on the 25th of January 2023.
