Adeboye 6th Birthday Public Lecture: Don kicks against death penalty
A Professor of Anatomy in the University of Lagos, Professor Ademola Oremosu, has lent his voice to the abolition of death penalty and extra-judicial killings.
The academician, who spoke at the 6th Annual Birthday Public Lecture of Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye in Lagos, argued that no human being has the right to take the life of another person.
Oremosu in his word said “You come across people especially when they are things of dilemma and ethics and some will say they are prolife and others prochoice. Nobody should have the right to take another person’s life and that is the message we should send round the country and round the whole world. Even if you think a life is no of value to you. It is of value to the maker.
“Life is not only about the one we live, but about our care about what happen to the other person,” he stated.
The public lecture was organized by the Triumphant Elders Consultative Forum, an association of retired Elders of the Redeemed Christian Church of God.
The lecture titled “Life and Living: Examining the Essence”, had revered diplomat, Dr. Christopher Kolade, delivered the lead lecture.
Kolade, who decried the decline in moral and values in the Nigerian society, frowned at parents who encourage examination malpractices by engaging mercenaries.
While admonishing all, he said, “Life is what we have been given and living is what we do with it.” He advised that obedience must be the way of living and the essence of living.
He pointed out that if God’s people are truly glowing in their relationship with God, they have all it takes to extort a positive influence that can change the wrong doers around them.
While exalting the virtues in the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor E.A. Adeboye, Kolade observed that the well-respected G.O. has carved his name in the hearts of people.
Professor Risikat Dauda, a professor of Economics, at the lecture also observed that the various economic and security challenges bedeviling Nigeria is as a result of Nigerians not living right.
Dauda said that all of us as Nigerians should learn to live right. “People living in unrighteousness find it difficult to define their own status not to talk of living a life of impact. Nigeria is in this sorry state today because of unrighteousness,” she said.
The public lecture is an annual event dedicated to honour Pastor E.A. Adeboye.
