Israel Is Peaceful And Safe – NCPC Boss Says


The Executive Secretary of the Nigerian Christian Pilgrim Commission (NCPC), Bishop Stephen Adegbite, has assured Nigerians that the State of Israel is peaceful and safe for pilgrims.

Prof. Cletus Gotan, board members, state pilgrimage leaders, and private Christian pilgrimage operators attended the pre-visit and retreat from May 31 to June 6 to chart a new course for the Commission.
