Reverend Copper Sebok of COCIN Church Panyam has disclosed that over 400 persons of Fulani ethnicity across the country have converted to Christianity, The reverend disclosed this at the end of a 3-day conference organised for all Fulani converts of all denominations nationwide on Sunday, April 30.
He urged the converts to preach the gospel of peace to their kindred in order to reduce the prevailing crises in the country.
In his word, “The conference is also a re-union service for all Fulani converts regardless of their denominations and to share experiences and encourage one another in the propagation of the gospel of peace. It is a concept of COCIN 43 years ago, and to debunk the notion that Fulani’s are nomadic and can’t be reached with the gospel of Christ’’.
During his speech, Rev Sebok alighted on some of the crisis in Nigeria which according to him ” usually resulted to loss of lives and property”, He also added that Nigerians must embrace peace for the progress and development of the nation. Speaking on behalf of the converts, Rev. Hassan Mohammed expressed gratitude to God for giving them a new lease of life as Christians.
He disclosed that the conference was an eye opener for them to go and proclaim the gospel not only to their kindred but to all nations. He said: “We have a total of seven Fulani people ordained Reverends beside other Pastors and Evangelists and we are doing our best to enlighten our brothers and sisters about Christianity”.
