Not fewer than 180,000 Christians across the world will on Saturday, July 20, gather at the
Tafawa Balewa Square, Lagos, to pray for world peace.
The promoter of the crusade, Rev Mother Esther Ajayi, disclosed this recently at Julis, Northern District of Israel, where she gave scholarship to 30 students of higher institutions in the community.
The philanthropist said the only thing that could bring peace to the world, especially Nigeria was the prayer of the faithful. She insisted that Christians needed to come together to celebrate Jesus Christ who is the “Comforter,” noting that the proceed from the crusade would be given to charity homes in Nigeria.
While presenting cheques to the beneficiaries, Ajayi said she knew about the vulnerable in Julis through the Executive Director of Munir Foundation, Mr Nadeem Ammar, who she met in London, and told her how General Munir Ammar died in a Plane Crash in 2006.
She stated, “I was moved to tears when I heard the story of many families in this community and some youths who wanted to go to school, but could not because their breadwinners are either dead or have health challenges.
“I was impressed with the story of the late General, who died three years ago. We are glad to support this foundation because any support to advance the course of education among youth is a deliberate effort to secure their future and make the world a better place. I am also glad that they are judiciously spending the money we gave the foundation and this encourages us to do more”.
Appreciating Ajayi for her kind gesture to the people of Israel, Col. Moneeb Bader, said the community would remain eternally grateful to her for giving hopes to hopeless youths.
He reacted, “I would like in the name of Munir’s family to thank you for your presence here. We appreciate very much your gesture to us in those meaningful and painful
moments. You are showing a great commitment and friendship to the family and to the community here.”
