Former Vice Chancellor of University of Calabar, UNICAL and Deputy Governor of Cross River State, Prof. Ivara Esu, has said that God used the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, to end cultism in the University of Calabar.
He made this statement in Calabar at a welcome dinner in honour of the pioneer minister in charge of Cross River Province 4 of RCCG, Pastor Emmanuel Chidi, and his assistant, Pastor Victor Adebayo.
“Personally, I have benefited immensely from Pastor Adeboye. Some of you may not remember. While I was the vice-chancellor of UNICAL, I was at the helm at a very turbulent time with so much cultism and students were being shot right on campus, until God revealed to me that I should bring Pastor Adeboye to pray in UNICAL.
“When Pastor Adeboye came, I accompanied him and we first prayed at the gate and proceeded to my office to pray. From there, we went to the male students’ hostel in ‘Malabor’ and prayed and thereafter we had a large service at the Abraham Ordia Stadium, and from that day, that was the end of violence and cultism in UNICAL, he recalled.
Esu said this happened between 2000 and 2005 when he was the vice-chancellor of the institution, where cult activities were at the peak, recalling that a ‘powerful prayer’ for the institution by the RCCG overseer changed the situation.
He further congratulated RCCG House of David, on behalf of the governor, Ben Ayade and stated that RCCG remained one of the most blessed and fastest growing churches in Nigeria and possibly the world.
