Rev. Mother Ajayi also used the opportunity to appeal to the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to sheath their swords, make compromises and urgently reach an agreement for the benefit of the students.
On the 2023 elections and INEC’s ban of campaigns in places of worship, she said the ban was in order because the pulpit should not be turned to a campaign arena but she noted that the church was open to all candidates, and to people of all faiths.
Reacting to a trending video by Prophet Israel Ogundipe fondly called Genesis, Rev. Mother Ajayi said she has asked members of her church and everyone within her sphere of influence to prayer for the young preacher.
