CAC’s Pastor Adenusi Charges Christians To Embrace Politics And Bail Nigeria From Darkness, At FOP’s 22nd Anniversary


The District Superintendent of the Christ Apostolic Church (CAC) English Assembly District in Itire, Lagos, Pastor Bayo Adenusi, has urged Christians to take up the mantle of political leadership and get involved in Nigerian politics or else continue to suffer in the hands of inept leadership.

Speaking on the 22nd anniversary theme, “ARISE AND SHINE,” at the CAC Fountain of Power in Egbe area of Lagos, Adenusi said that Nigeria currently groped under the power of darkness and needed the light of God that Christians were equipped to shed on their environment.

He particularly took exception to the sufferings of Nigerians at this time.

Adenusi said: “Darkness is everywhere. And no one has come to address us. I bought a litre of fuel for N270. Even some people are saying that I bought it cheaply because they got it for more. Some of you are running away from politics. Pray and move. You may be the one God wants to use to deliver this country. Enough of darkness!”

Adenusi cited the example of one-time monarch of Ibadan, Oba Sir Isaac Babalola Akinyele (1882-1964), who was a staunch pillar in Christ Apostolic Church as well as being a king on the throne in Yoruba land.

As a Christian, Oba Akinyele endured and defied the tricks and attacks of the powers of darkness and juju, and they had no choice but bow to the overwhelming power of Jesus Christ in his life, the DS recalled.

Speaking on CAC Fountain of Power’s 22nd anniversary theme, ARISE AND SHINE, the Pastor said the two words were words of command and not of appeal.

According to him, just as in a Nigeria that wallowed with many negatives, the word of God came to His people in the land of Israel to rise up and shine.

He declared upon the congregation: “I see you rising from poverty and failure into joy, success, blessing and glory in Jesus name.

“What you need to drive darkness away is to shine. Go and shine, in Jesus name!”

He said God wanted His children to move from darkness to light, carnality to holiness, shame to glory, failure to success.

He urged people to break away from their status quo and imbibe quality that goes beyond religiosity.

“Can people follow you to your church? God wants us to be His law enforcement officers.”

Present at the occasion were the Minister-in-Charge of CAC-FOP Pastor Emmanuel Assam, the Resident Pastor Joseph Oluwole, the Resident Evangelist Israel Abajigin and Lady Evangelist Benedicta Assam.

Guests included: Mrs. Bayo Adenusi, Pastor Bayo and Deaconess Beatrice Odole, Pastor Wisdom, Pastor Lanre and Itunu Olufemi, Pastor Olutayo, Pastor Ogundiya, Evangelist Oreofe, elders, evangelists, lady evangelists and deaconesses from the CAC-EAD branches, other CAC assemblies, as well as Christians and non-Christians.

Assam gave glory to God for sustaining the church through the country and the world’s harsh socio-economic indices.

Fountain of Power was established as the Egbe, Alimosho branch of the CAC English Assembly headquarters in Itire, Lagos in 2000, under a canopy on a rented plot of land.

Today it occupies its own permanent site in an exclusive area of Alimosho, neighbouring the palace of the Elegbe of Egbe land, Oba Oba Ashimiyu Atanda Adebowale Dada-Otta, Kudaki Obalufon I.

The anniversary witnessed thanksgiving by friends of the church as well as its different arms, including: Children’s Department, Women’s Fellowship, Men’s Fellowship, Youth Fellowship, Sunday School Department, Media Department, the Choir, Evangelism Unit, Sanctuary Keepers, Ushers’ Department, Counselling-Visitation Department and Prayer Band.
