An award of excellence has presented to the President of the Church of Christ in Nations, COCIN, Rev. Dr. Amos Mohzo by an association known as the Legislative Writers Forum National Assembly, Abuja.
Presenting the award to the COCIN President in his office at the COCIN Headquarters, Jos, leader of the association, Akpe Sunday who spoke on behalf of the association’s president who was away on official duties said the award was in recognition of the COCIN President’s administrative prowess and selfless service to the church and humanity in general.
Akpe who is the association’s organizing secretary praised the spiritual leader for his sense of calmness and humility in his leadership adding that such virtues should be emulated by people in order to make a huge positive difference in the society.
He said the association is made up of over 100 seasoned journalists covering the National Assembly and maintained that the award will further spur the leader to propagate the word of God and to lead COCIN to greater heights.
Responding, Rev. Dr. Amos Mohzo appreciated the association for considering him for such an award and added that he is indeed humbled and will continue to discharge his responsibilities in accordance to the guidance and leadership of the Holy Spirit.
He explained that COCIN is positioned to present the undiluted message of Christ’s salvation to anyone who believes and accepts Him, regardless or religion, race or gender that is why COCIN is spread across most states of Nigeria and has its presence in other countries around the world.
Rev. Dr. Mohzo noted that COCIN presents the wholistic gospel hence it is concerned with the physical and spiritual wellbeing of the people which is why it has set up schools, churches and hospitals to cater for those needs. He called on the team of journalists to ensure that they present the truth to the masses as the words coming from the government do not usually reflect the realities on ground. He charged them to be agents of development and positive change so that together they will develop the nation.
In his remarks, Vice President of the Church, Rev. Dr. Timothy Nwan said the award was well deserved because the President is truly a man with humility and understanding whose principle in life is transparency and accountability. He appreciated the team of journalists for the award and prayed for God to bless them in their discharge of responsibilities.
Highlight of the event was the presentation of the award and special prayers for the team of journalists which was made up of 3 men and a lady.
