The Executive Secretary of the Nigeria Christian Pilgrims Commission (NCPC) Rev. Tor Uja has said that it was his desire for the stakeholders in the pilgrimage project to promote unity of the church through pilgrimage.
Rev. Uja stated in Abuja while playing host to the newly appointed Chairman and Secretary of the Nasarawa State Pilgrims Welfare Board who paid him a courtesy visit.
He stressed that he would want a situation whereby the church plays a key role in the promotion of peace in Nigeria.
He urged the two pilgrimage leaders from Nasarawa State to take pilgrimage beyond pilgrimage in biblical principles, rather deep spiritual exercise.
In his remark, the Chairman Nasarawa State Pilgrim Welfare Board, Rev. Markus Shammah said, “we are grateful to God who has made it possible to have you as the Executive Secretary of NCPC at a time like this”.
He added, “We have seen a lot of changes since you assumed office and described the job of the NCPC boss as a service to God and humanity.
The chairman further stated that the Executive Secretary has been doing well especially during the last Pilgrimage Leaders meeting where the NCPC boss gave a charge and exhortation.
