Thousands of delegates Friday gathered at the Assembly Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Ota, Ogun State, as the Witnesses began the last in the series of their 2015 “Imitate Jesus!” Regional Convention. The delegates, of all ages, came from various parts of the country but mainly from Lagos and Ogun states.

Welcoming the delegates to the three-day event, Convention Chairman, Brother Life Owu, described the theme, “Imitate Jesus!”, as being appropriate. He said that people all over the world generally look for role models and described Jesus Christ as the best role model anyone could have. Brother Owu said: “Jesus Christ is our teacher and our role model. He is the one we should imitate. Imitating Jesus safeguards us from the temptations of this system of things and is the only way we can gain everlasting life.”

A statement by the Ota 9-12 Convention Series Media Services Department said that the convention programme starts at 8:20 a.m. each day and closes at 3:50 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and 2:45 p.m. on Sunday. “We warmly invite interested members of the public to attend the programme free of charge. We believe that the public will enjoy the fresh presentation of significant events in Jesus’ life. The programme promises an interactive approach, incorporating meaningful and exciting video features that will show how we can benefit from imitating Jesus in our everyday lives,” the statement said.

It gave the highlights of the convention to include a moving two-part theatrical production that will portray significant events in Jesus’ life, interviews and demonstrations on practical ways to imitate Jesus today, as well as the special Bible discourse entitled “Jesus Christ, World Conqueror—How and When?” to be presented on Sunday morning.
