Over forty nations, including Britain, America, Sweden, Turkey, and some from Africa continent would on the 5th of November, 2013 gather in Jos, Plateau State capital to worship God and to dedicate God’s temple built by El-Buba Outreach Ministries International (EBOMI).
Disclosing this in a world Press Conference in Jos, the General Overseer of the Ministries, Prophet Isa El-Buba, said the eleven-storey tower containing 3,000 capacity auditorium, 200 five-star suites, conference centre, prayer cubicles amongst other structures was a specification given him by God like He did to King Solomon of the Bible days.
He said apart from the spiritual aspect of the edifice, the city of Jos would be opened to the world for greater commercial activities, and the world will now see for itself that peace has returned to the city.
Dismissing the insinuations that Governor Jonah Jang was behind the over N100 billion edifice, El-Buba said the project had started in 2005, even before Jang became the governor, adding, “Can Plateau cough out such an amount of money? If it does, it will go bankrupt. The people of goodwill that I have fathered in ministry have come back to remember their shepherd; the state has no hand in the building of the tower.”
The cleric said adequate security will be provided for all the guests that would flock into Jos on the day of the event, adding, however that “our security is not the one provided by man, but that given by God”.
On the planned National Conference, the cleric said it was a desirable step by government, adding that the conference is not meant to divide us but to bind us stronger together as a nation.
“It is a welcome idea; we all need to sit down as a nation and discuss how to make progress,” he added.
He prophesied that the 2015 elections would run smoothly without any rancour, “there should be no fear; nothing negative will happen”.
Expected to perform the dedication ceremony are dignitaries from all walks of life, including great clerics from within and outside Africa.
Pastor Enoch Adeboye of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, National Chairman, Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, and Jang would be expected to lead other worshipers in calling down God’s presence over the assembly.
