The executive secretary, Nigeria Christian Pilgrim Commission (NCPC), Rev. Yakubu Pam, has said the Commission “is a bridge-builder between the government and the church.
A press statement issued by the media unit indicated that Rev. Pam stated this recently in Gboko, Benue state, during a courtesy visit to the Tor Tiv, Prof. James Ayatse, in his palace.
According to him, the Commission is saddled with the responsibility of coordinating, organising and superintending the movement of Christians to Israel, Greece, Rome, Jordan, and other holy sites around the world.
He assured the monarch that NCPC would partner with him in its pilgrimage programmes, especially in creating the needed awareness amongst his subjects.
“It is our honour and privilege to work with you in this venture to build the faith of our people by going to the holy sites around the world. If we are able to take our people to the holy sites their faith would be renewed and they would come out stronger,” he said.
He commended the Tor Tiv for his “wonderful role as the chairman of the Christian Association of Traditional Rulers in Nigeria.”
In his remarks, the monarch congratulated the NCPC boss on his “well-deserved appointment which was hinged on your rich pedigree.”
“You are doing something that is practical and you need to be supported. I want to assure you as the leader of the Christian Association of Traditional Rulers, we will do everything we can to support you,” he said.
