In a bold move to spread the gospel, Apostle Chibuzor Gift Chinyere of Omega Power Ministry (OPM) has announced plans to travel to the northern parts of Nigeria to reach out to Boko Haram and Fulani herdsmen.
The Apostle, who recently celebrated his 50th birthday, made the announcement during a special service at the OPM headquarters in Port Harcourt, Rivers State. He said that he is determined to bring salvation to everyone, regardless of their background or beliefs.
“Salvation is for every creature created by God Almighty,” he said. “If God Almighty can give me the strength to visit dangerous areas and convince armed robbers to come to OPM and surrender their guns, the same God will give me strength to convince Boko Haram and Fulani herdsmen to surrender their weapons.”
Apostle Chibuzor is known for his philanthropic work and his commitment to helping the less privileged. He had established 29 free schools for less privileged children, two free specialist hospitals for the less privileged, and 18 free estates for homeless families. He had also helped to secure the release of over 70 inmates from prison who could not afford to hire lawyers.
The Apostle’s plan to travel to the northern parts of Nigeria to reach out to Boko Haram and Fulani herdsmen had been met with mixed reactions.
