Mothers Day: Church Hijacks Media


As part of the agenda for this year’s Women’s Day celebration, women in different districts and sections of Assemblies of God Nigeria organised media conferences, published photographs in newspapers, ran news commentaries in the national radio, and also carried news in national television.

The mobile phones were also inundated with, greetings and wishes for a happy and successful Mothering Sunday.

This was in line with an earlier charge to take over the media for such purpose.

Women of Assemblies of God Nigeria had been enjoined to exploit the opportunity of the Women’s Day celebration to take over Radio Stations, Television Stations and Newspapers to create awareness, as well as sensitise the neighobourhood on their activities.

In a message to the Women Ministries of the Assemblies of God Nigeria, the Cordinator, of the ministry, Dr. Mrs Paul Emeka Sharon, charged members to make positive noise in the country.

In her words, “Take over request cards, strictly Christian music to be played, take over national radio if possible, take over the whole media in Nigeria, take over the web; (yahoo, facebook) take over magazines, place banners here and there, put bill-boards if you are able”, she said.
