Adamawa church suspends annual convention over COVID-19

Published

The most prominent church group in Adamawa State, Lutheran Church of Christ in Nigeria (LCCN), has postponed its national convention over COVID-19.

This is the first time the church is postponing its convention, which has been held every February for decades.

In a circular signed by the administrative secretary of the church, Mr. Parisa Ishaku and released to newsmen by the LCCN Information Officer, Felix Samari, the church executive council said it made the decision considering the high risk of exposing the hundreds of thousands of worshipers that attend the convention in Demsa every year.

“The LCCN Executive Council at its meeting of 15th January 2021, after a careful deliberation taking into consideration the current state and risk of aggravating the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, took the painful decision to suspend indefinitely the 95th Annual National Convention originally scheduled to hold from 24th – 28th February 2021 at the LCCN Covenant Ground Demsa, Adamawa State, Nigeria,” the church stated.

The LCCN circular, however, mentioned that the church will hold an expanded General Church Council to allow the consecration of a bishop-elect and ordination of 32 pastors.

“To ensure the consecration of the bishop-elect of Yola Diocese and ordination of 32 prospective candidates as pastors that cannot be postponed, the EC approved the convening of an Expanded General Church Council (BME) from the 25th – 28th February 2021 at the St. Johns Arch Cathedral, LCCN Headquarters, Numan for prayers, reflection and administration of the acts of consecration and ordination accordingly,” the church explained.
