The Governor of the State of Osun, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola has once again been described as the best thing that has happened to the State of Osun.
The assertion was made in Osogbo by the President of the Baptist Convention on Thursday.
The Church held its 100th Convention in Osogbo and was hosted Osun Baptist Conference.
The week long convention came to an end on Thursday where the governor had inspected the guard of honour mounted by the Royal Ambassadors & Lydia Ladies, a paramilitary group of the Church.
Ogbeni Aregbesola had earlier commended the Church for its foresight and high investments in education which he said had saved a lot of youths from becoming a tool in the hand of Satan.
The Governor who was christened with a biblical name “Reuben” used the occasion to present the Certificate of Occupancy, C of O of the convention ground to the church.
“I want to honestly commend the Baptist Church for their positive influence on our country especially in the area of education, the church has been able to impact positively on our nation, many of our youths who would have become a tool in the hand of Satan had been educated through your efforts” Aregbesola said.
On his new name “Reuben” The governor said “if I have my way to choose my own Christian name, I would have chosen Nathaniel because Nathaniel was a man in the bible that was recommended by Jesus to the Israelite as a good man but as you have given me Reuben, I will take it”
Aregbesola while presenting the C of O to the Chairman of the convention reads Psalm 24 vs 1-end to commemorate the presentation of the certificate.
While showing appreciation to the governor, the Chairman of the convention said they have never had it so good in the history of their convention with any State or any Governor and thank the governor for his kind gesture especially for fulfilling his promise of presenting the C of O at the Convention ground.
He then ordained Governor Reuben Aregbesola as an evangelist and a big bible was presented to him as a symbol of evangelism.
