Similar visit: Recall that the frontline presidential candidate had received a similar reception when he visited Pastor Paul Enenche‘s Dunamis International Gospel Centre, Abuja, on Friday, July 29, 2022.
Thousands of worshippers had thronged the church for its Mid-Year Praise and Worship Night, to seek the face of God over the state of security and other challenges facing the country.
