The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Reconciliation Centre, Province 67, Mushin, Lagos, yesterday doled out food, clothes, and sundry items to some less privileged persons during the sixth edition of the church’s annual welfare programme.
Speaking with The Guardian, the host, Pastor Ademola Ojo, said: “We started when we discovered that some people after service come around to ask for money for food. Others come to church wearing tattered clothes. We decided that in our little way, we should cloth them, give them food and assist them as a way to express our love to people around us.”
The pastor who preached on the theme: ‘Greater Love’, said: “I think we lack love in Nigeria; if there is true love, we will look out for the wellbeing of every citizen. We will not kill ourselves. If we truly love one another, what our president is enjoying would be what the common man can also enjoy. Another bad thing in our society is that even when we say the government don’t love the masses, the masses don’t also show love to one another. You can give without loving, but you can never love without giving.”
