President of the General Conference of Seventh-Day Adventists worldwide, Elder (Dr) N. C. Ted Wilson will be in Babcock University as part of his tour of African nations.
President Wilson who is visiting Nigeria for the second time in almost a decade, will be expected to commission the new multi-million Naira academic block in Babcock.
Beyond project commissioning, the significance of the visit to the University community lies in the strengthening of the Seventh-day Adventist Church’s mission work on the continent and Centenary celebrations in Eastern Nigeria.
His visit will also provide platform for interaction with the Babcock University community as well as royal fathers of the host community and environs.
Other Church leaders from the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists with headquarters in Maryland, USA as well as the West Central African Regional headquarters in Cote d’Ivoire will be on his entourage on this august occasion.
In an earlier visit to the Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Pastor Umo Bassey Eno, President Wilson appealed for understanding in creating favourable policies to enable Seventh-day Adventists and other Sabbath keepers to undertake the mandatory monthly environmental sanitation programmes, take exams and vote on days without issues of conflict with the Sabbath worship.
