THE leadership of the Aso Villa Chapel has denied speculations that the chapel has been closed down by the Presidency, describing the rumour as handiwork of mischief makers. The Presidency shared photos from the church service to back up its claim.

Fielding questions from State House correspondents after the church service on Sunday, acting chaplain, Pastor Joseph Sheyi Malomo, admitted that though there were some procedural issues last Sunday that needed to be sorted out, the Presidency at no time or­dered the closure of the chapel. The cleric appealed to Nigerians to ignore the rumour and focus rather on is­sues that will unit the country.

Meanwhile, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo yesterday said great things have begun to happen in the country and assured Nigerians to look forward to more excit­ing time. The assurance came a day after the incumbent administration marked its 100 days in office. Osinbajo disclosed this at the grand finale of the 33rd Holy Ghost Convention entitled: Divine Enlargement, organised by the Christ Life Church, held in Ibadan. He was hosted by Bishop Wale Oke. Osinbajo, noted that President Muhammadu Buhari has reeled out his transforma­tional agenda for the nation on economy, agriculture, health, education and so on, enjoined Nigerians not to relent in supporting the administration with prayers.
