Leaky Roof Stops President Buhari’s Inauguration Service At National Christian Centre

1

A leaky roof at the National Christian Centre, Abuja, which came off after a downpour that lasted for over an hour, marred the presidential inauguration interdenominational church service for President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Sunday.

The event which was officiated by National President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Rev Samson Olasupo, was attended by the Vice-President and his wife, Mrs Dolapo Osinbajo; the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu; Secretary to the Government of the Federation and Chairman of the Presidential Inauguration Committee, Boss Mustapha; and a former Head of State, Gen. Yakubu Gowon, among others.

However Rev Samson Olasupo who apologized after the leaky roof marred the presidential inauguration interdenominational church service for President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, said;

“Let me apologise to all of you who are too fortunate to be sitting where the water is dropping. It was almost 25 years ago or thereabouts when then President Olusegun Obasanjo mobilised his friends and set up a committee outside the government to help us raise money to build this place.

“So, if the roof is leaking now, I think it’s not too early. We have been trying to repair and repair. The last quotation that was submitted for it to be totally replaced was about N100m.”

  1. This situation is very shameful to CAN, PFN and more to Christians in this present government! This Inauguration service gave four years notice! 25 years ago it was the former President Olusegun that God used to remove the reproach of the abandoned project! Now everybody went home. The managers of the Center waited for 4 fours to display childishness! Those that are not available for the work of God should not rush to occupy positions! When wrong people occupy position of honour this is the type of thing you get. Certainly if one does not plan, he has already planed to fail!
