#CNO has just been informed that Pastor Mobiyina Friday Oshoffa is not only interested in the unity of Celestial Church of Christ worldwide but is a man of peace who will sacrifice anything to make peace reign. How?
Well, some birds whispered to us a few days back that the issue of the International Headquarters and Republic of Benin Dioceses, Porto Novo has gone beyond leadership tussle, the reason being that, the property on which the Benin Dioceses is sited belongs to Pastor Friday Emmanuel Mobiyina Oshoffa by inheritance. Are you surprised? So I was!
The people who made this known to us said that, when our late Pastor founder SBJ Oshoffa was to buy the property used for the Republic of Benin Diocese, it was documented in Emmanuel Friday Mobiyina’s name and not that of Celestial Church of Christ. And the late sage, Papa Oshoffa, had procured the landed property before the church was formally named by divine order. So while contemplating on a name to use in purchasing the property for the purpose of evangelism, he just used his son’s name, Mobiyina Oshoffa.
Now, some people are of the opinion that Pastor Mobiyina Oshoffa should take over the place since it’s his heritage but he forbade anyone doing that. According to the whispering birds, as long as the place is being put to missionary work of Celestial Church of Christ, why would he want to lay claim to it, referring people to the Bible in psalm 24! “The earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. ..”
We reliably gathered that he told those who want him to take over the said property point blank that, he would never for any selfish interest alter the work of God, “It’s Celeste that is there, so there is no reason doing anything that will destroy the work of God.”
Meanwhile, findings from that side of Porto-Novo revealed that, the fear of him taking over the place wrapped the minds of the authority over there leading them to have made some moves securing an expanse of land within Porto-Novo axis in case of any eventuality. An inside source at ketu International headquarters has, however informed us that Pastor Mobiyina Oshoffa has assured them that there is nothing to fear about, “the work of God continues,” he’s quoted to have said.
