•Commissioners Daniel and Tracey Kasuso on arrival on Monday
A new national leader of The Salvation Army, Commissioner Daniel Kasuso, has arrived to take charge of the affairs of the international movement in Nigeria as Territorial Commander.
Arriving at the Muritala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos Monday night, with his wife Tracey, the new leaders were warmly welcomed by hundreds of Officers and Comrades of the organisation in Nigeria, led by the Chief Secretary, Lt. Col. Isaac Danso, along with a brigade of the brass band which The Salvation Army is known for around the world.
Addressing his members on arrival at the airport, the new Territorial Commander said he and his wife have been sent by God to the Nigeria nation, through the international leadership of the movement, to bring comfort and succour to the souls of men and women in the country.
This, he said, will be done with full determination to continue to meet physical and emotional human needs, lift their souls with the message of salvation, and so live out the motto, 'Heart to God, Hand to Man'.
Kasuso added that the fight to free the souls of men and women has to be done in unity by all the stakeholders, Salvationists and non Salvationists alike, in order to conquer the common enemy of mankind which is the devil.
"We've been sent by the leadership to Nigeria. My wife and I do not know how long we're going to be here. But all we know is that we're here to fight together, all of us. We must fight until the devil is defeated," he said.
His wife, Commissioner Tracey Kasuso who will serve as Territorial President of Women Ministry (TPWM) thanked all present for coming out enmass to welcome them to Nigeria, being their very first time of their coming to the country.
Before coming to Nigeria, Commissioners Daniel and Tracey Kasuso had served in various appointments in the largest denomination known internationally for its social services.
The couple were divisional leaders of The Salvation Army,
Port Elizabeth, Eastern Cape, in South Africa as well as territorial leaders of Zimbabwe, among other appointments.
