Nigeria’s Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, President of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, Bishop David Oyedepo, Proprietor of the Lagos Business School, Professor Pat Utomi are among resource persons expected to grace the 2016 African Convention of the Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship International-Nigeria, scheduled for November 16-19, 2016, at the National Stadium, Abuja.
Speaking in Abuja, National President of the organisation, Arc Ifeanyi Odedo, said the convention would attract 30, 000 participants from 25 countries across Africa, Asia and Europe in the 160 nations strong organisation.
The event, which he said would be a spiritual event with a strong business component themed: “Occupy Till I Come”, would dwell on the harmony of man’s spiritual, social and business life.
“It is charge for us to reflect godly standards and highest level of integrity as we engage in our various fields of human endeavour, and to remain busy with God’s work until He comes again.
“This convention is thus coming at an auspicious time in the life of our nation. It is designed to give a divine cutting edge to the ongoing spiritual, social and economic reengineering of the country as we struggle to fight insurgencies, militancy, recession and corruption.
“As we gather to lift up our voices unto the Lord in humility and prayer and resolve to turn from wicked ways, God has promised to heal our nation, spiritually, economically, socially, politically, and otherwise”, he said.
Odedo said the event would also promote Nigeria’s huge economic potentials to the participants especially those coming from outside the country and across the states of the federation.
He said the organisation was also in touch with Nigeria Export Promotion Council (NEPC) as well as other trade and investment promotional agencies to maximise the opportunities offered by the convention.
