Speaking shortly after the dedication of the new church auditorium at the All Saints Anglican Church, Osinbajo urged members of the church to see the occasion as a call to the greater work of transforming the entire society.
According to him, “The dedication of the physical building called the church must only remind us that the real work of building the church is that of bringing up men and women in the knowledge and nurture of the Lord.
