Peter Obi sympathizes with Christ Embassy

The former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, has reacted to the fire that gutted the headquarters of Christ Embassy on Sunday morning, June 23.

In a series of tweets, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the 2023 elections said: “I feel deeply distressed by the fire incident that gutted the Headquarters of Christ Embassy Church. Reports indicate that  the devastating fire ravaged the headquarters of the Church in Oregun, Ikeja, Lagos State.”

The politician and businessman stated that his prayers are with the founder of the church, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, its members, and the community the incident occurred.

Obi said: “My thoughts and prayers are first and foremost with the founder of the Church, Revered Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, the entire Church membership, and the community affected by this tragic incident.

“I urge the authorities to investigate the cause of the fire immediately and take the necessary steps to prevent such incidents in the future. As a nation, we must come together to support those affected and rebuild what has been lost.”

While encouraging the church further, he noted that adversaries are part of our lives and individuals must stay united when they face it.

“We must all stand united in the face of adversity and work towards a safer and more compassionate society for all knowing that God is always with us even in our storms,” he said.

Also, gospel singer Nathaniel Bassey, reacted to the sad incident. He wrote on his X page: “My prayers are with Christ Embassy. A new level and glory in Jesus’ name.”

Several people commented on the post of the "Jesus Iye" crooner.

@TemiOluwa commented: “The glory of the latter house shall be greater than the former in Jesus' name.”
