The Salvation Army church celebrated Nigeriaâ€™s 50th independence anniversary by trainingÂ some members of the Igbobi Corps. The training programme included Bible school education,Â music ministration and the use of musicalÂ instruments.
The training school principal of the church, Major Gabriel Adepoju said the church hadÂ always been an advocate of self-motivation and development. He added that Nigerian youthÂ need to learn how to channel their strength towards something that is positive forÂ themselves and the country. Adepoju further said that this is a time of sober reflectionÂ for the country. He believes that the country can still achieve all the great things thatÂ have eluded her in the past. â€œNigeria is a great country with potentials but our leadersÂ need to do more if we are to achieve success. It is the will of God that we continue toÂ forge ahead as a nation but our politicians will do well to rebuild this country,â€ heÂ said.
