Lawrence Ekwok, Chairman, Central Planning Committee of the just concluded three-day Greater Calabar Crusade, has exclusively revealed to www.calitown.com that crowd participation at the crusade was in excess of two million people.
Daniel Kolenda successor to renowned evangelist Reinhard Bonnke of the Christ for All Nations Crusade, who ministered at the crusade, he also revealed, used the crusade as his first crusade engagement after the headship of Christ For All Nations was handed him.
On the level of security preparations the Central Organizing Committee put into the crusade, Ekwok who is also the State Chairman of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN, disclosed that a total of 500 security personnel were drafted to cater to security throughout the crusade days. “There was to the glory of God, no security breaches even though some people expressed concerns that the CRUTECH ground, venue of the crusade, may be threatened by security breaches. We however had this funny situation where a young man was caught around the venue, trying to steal phones. He was caught and brought to the security operatives and they simply handcuffed him and told him to sit on the floor and listen to Daniel Kolenda preach the word of God; he sat all through that day of the crusade before he was taken away at the end of the day’s proceedings”, he said.
There was high praise from him for media coverage of the event. ” When I initially addressed the press, I told you people that we were expecting and exceptional crowd of people and media coverage of the crusade, proved me correct. There are pictures every where to show that this was an amazing crusade; I must commend the level of media competence that was displayed in reportage”. Ekwok concluded by thanking all those who participated in the crusade and prayed that God’s continuous grace will abide with them all.
