Dakibiyu District Celebrates 30 Awesome years of Dedicated Service

Two spiritual messages, at different times from Snr. Apostle Prophet D.S. Jolayemi, at C&S Movement Church, Ilorin, Kwara State, in 1987, and another one by Prophet J.I.O. Abiose, at C&S Movement Church, at Sanusi Street, Kano, in May, 1988, with a directive from the National Headquarters of the C&S Movement Church, based in Kaduna then, were the catapulting factors that brought about what is today the C&S Movement Church, Dakibiyu District, Abuja, into existence.
That was 30 years ago. Of course, the messages had two revelations.
The first was about the transfer of the then Snr. Apostle A.A. Bodunrin to coordinate a C&S Movement Church in Abuja.
The other message specifically revealed that Special Apostle Prophet Gabriel Olubunmi Fakeye, of blessed memory, was to establish a branch of the Surulere District of the C&S Movement Church, in Abuja, through Snr. Apostle A.A. Bodunrin.
Later, a directive in January 1990, from then Kaduna headquarters of the C&S Movement Church, to the Central and Implementation Planning Committee [CPIC], of the Church Worldwide, to formally plant another branch of the Church in the FCT, Abuja.
All these, metamorphosed to the birth of the Dakibiyu branch of the C&S Movement Church, Surulere District, Ayo Ni O, on Sunday, 2nd September, 1990, at the then residence of late Snr. Mother In Israel Adejoke Adegoke, nee Oyelola, at Block 406, No. 5, Flat 1, Niami Street, Wuse, Abuja.
Five months later, the objective for which Dakibiyu District was established was revealed by Evangelist Alamutu, with this Vision, “The full relationship of the Salvation of God to all men through the knowledge of Jesus Christ, the truth of God [John 8:32], while the Mission is, “To promote the New Birth amongst all nations, by preaching God’s Righteousness for the remission of sins, through faith in the blood of Jesus [Matt, 26:28 and Rom. 3:25]”.
The constant visits, series of revelations and spiritual guidance by the following spectacular Elders of the Surulere District; Sp. Ap. Prophet S, O. Aiyegbusi, Chairman, Amazing District Chairman/General Leader, Sp. Ap. Prophet G. O. Jagun, M/S/Ap. Prophet G . O. Adeshina and M/S/Ap. Prophet Olojo, all of blessed memory, mentored the development of then Dakibiyu branch, to overcome her teething challenges and eventual growth. The efforts of these gentlemen of blessed memory, resulted in a rapid landmark elevation of the then Dakibiyu branch of the Surulere District of the C&S Movement church, to, Surulere District, Abuja- Abuja Circuit Headquarters, in 2005, 15 years after inception.
This was followed by an unexpected rise to District status, one year later, through God’s injunction and the special request of Prophet G. O. Fakeye, the acknowledged mentor of Dakibiyu C&S Movement Church, Abuja, 16 years after inception.
The church has moved on to greater heights since then with these landmark achievements.
Sponsorship of Orin Iyin, a 30 minutes Musical Programme anchored by the late Special Apostle for Evangelism and 1st General of the C&S Movement Church, Surulere District Worldwide, Ayo Ni o, Prophet G. O. Fakeye, with Hausa language interpretation, and later, Seal of Life, anchored by Sp. Ap. Prophet S. F. Korode, the incumbent General Leader of the C&S Movement Church, Surulere District Worldwide, on the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria [FRCN], Abuja, on Sundays, at 8.03am, until recently, to promote evangelism.
Intensive Involvement in the following Christian Organisations activities in the FCT; Bible Society of Nigeria [BSN], C&S Unification Church of Nigeria, Abuja Chapter, Organisation of African Instituted Churches [OAIC] and the Christian Association of Nigeria [CAN].
Through the consistent activities of Dakibiyu District in the FCT, The Movement Church has become a registered and active member of the OAIC, and our current Baba Aladura, His Grace Most Reverend S. A. Abidoye, is a Board of Trustee Member of the OAIC.
Sp. Ap. A. A. Bodunrin, Dakibiyu District’s General Leader, is a distinguished member of Heads of Churches and that of CAN, Abuja chapter.
Dakibiyu District has the following branches under its jurisdiction- Maraba, Suleja, Gauraka, Kubwa, Kuje, Lugbe, Lukwoyi, Mararaba II, Gwagwalada, Anagada, Ikorodu and Keffi.
Dakibiyu District Headquarters has been able to operate with the fruitful compliment of these 18 bands- Choir, Emmanuel, Lydia & Samuel, Rhoda, Joseph, Faith, Ephraim, Warden, Prayerist, Anna, Esther, Mary, Good Women, Daniel, King David, Show the Glory of God and Soldiers of Christ, while the Evangelical and Shilloh groups have been a source of pride to the church.
The Children Ministry, Youth Fellowship and Spiritual Centre have functioned with ease to the glory of God.
In appreciation of God’s special Grace and intimidating goodness to them, the Secretary of the 30th Anniversary Planning Committee, Most Snr. Mother In Israel Prophetess Dr. Ayorinde Bakare informed Seraph News that, the leadership and entire membership of the C&S Movement Church, Dakibiyu District Abuja has put in place two events to celebrate 30 Decades of her existence at the FCT. The first event, scheduled for Saturday 31st October, is a lecture by the Archbishop Emeritus of the Catholic Diocese of Abuja, John Cardinal Onaiyekan, titled Understanding God’s Steadfast Love: God, Greed & Gospel in Our Contemporary History. The 30th Thanksgiving Anniversary is fixed for 12 noon on Sunday, 1st November. The words of exhortation will be delivered by Reverend Professor Bamidele Akinlolu, the Provost, PAN African Seminary, Nigeria, Plot 944, Opposite CITEC Estate Junction, along Airport, Jabi road, Dakibiyu, Abuja.
This rise from grass to grace story wasn’t really that smooth. It was a journey fraught with plenty of challenges and hiccups, like that of Israelites, when going through the wilderness, before they got to the promised land. However, the members were never daunted by the challenges. They were determined and unshakably focused, like Soldiers of Christ, to fulfil the uphill task of becoming overwhelming conquerors, with the ultimate aim of making the C&S Movement Church, Dakibiyu District, the obvious pride, of, not only the C&S Movement Church in the Federal Capital Territory of Abuja, but also that of The C&S Unification Church of Nigeria.
