Shiloh: Obi receives rousing reception welcome
Legit.ng reported that Obi received a rousing welcome from members of the Living Faith Church Worldwide on Thursday, December 8, 2022.
The former Anambra state governor visited Faith Tabernacle, headquarters of the mega-church at Sango Ota, Ogun state, to join worshippers at the Shiloh programme.
Bishop David Olatunji Abioye, the first vice president of the church, introduced Obi to the ecstatic congregants.
Reactions as Obi attends Shiloh
Nigerians reacted to Obi's visit to Shiloh.
Winners Chapel founder, Bishop David Oyedepo, said Nigeria does not need a leader at this moment but someone who can deliver.
Man makes it after attending Shiloh
He said that though he is a Liberian, he joined the commission when he was living in Ghana. When he returned to his home country in 2008, he continued.
Moses revealed that prior to joining the commission, he was nothing to be proud of as he was working for free as a journalist. He said he had to sell things like doughnuts, boiled eggs, and peanuts to survive.
