Pastor Adeboye postpones ‘Light Up Sokoto’ crusade

The Light Up Sokoto Crusade, scheduled to hold on May 16 to 17, 2022, has been postponed by the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye. The crusade, which was scheduled to be held physically, will now be held virtually.

Members of the church are expected to join online and pray for the state. The announcement by the cleric comes in the period that a student of Shehu Shagari College of Education in Sokoto, Deborah Yakubu, was gruesomely murdered by Muslim faithfuls for allegedly insulting the Prophet Muhammad.

Deborah’s death has drawn the attention of many people in the country and across. Adeboye, in a social media post, encouraged the church to keep interceding for the state.

He wrote, “Postponed but God turned it around. We trust in our God’s big picture plan! When God turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream.

“We serve a God who specialises in using the impossible situation for His glory. If you are in doubt, look closely at the death and resurrection of Jesus! Devil thought he killed Him, but His death and resurrection resulted into life for many. He keeps turning it around for our good. It is in this might that we proceed!”

The cleric also quoted the words of Richard Halverson saying, “Intercession is the truly universal work for the Christian. No place is closed to intercessory prayer: no continent, no nation, no city, no organization, no office. No power on earth can keep intercession out.”

The murder of Deborah Yakabu also made CAN to declare a peaceful protest at every CAN secretariat nationwide on May 22. This is to condemn the death of one of their own and also seek justice for the deceased.

However, Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Bishop Matthew Kukah, condemned the action of the culprits and asked that Christians should remain calm in this trying period.
