A/P Akiri was one of the ministers that God used to start a branch of The Redeemed Christian Church of God in the Federal Capital Territory. He was using his house as a fellowship centre with his family before the church began in one of the classrooms of a primary school in Karu, one of the towns in the outskirts of the city. At the same time, he was still an active worshipper at ECWA Church in Abuja.
Later, he and some other ministers, which included Pastor S. A. Oke, Pastor Taiwo Omolaja, Pastor Emmanuel Abenu, eventually became the willing instruments to start the first RCCG Parish in Abuja after the crusade held at L.E.D.A Primary School Karu in 1990. The Coordinator of the Northern Region of RCCG at that time was Pastor J. F. Odesola, who is presently the AGO to the General Overseer on Admin & Personnel. All this while, Pastor S. A. Oke was the rallying point for the RCCG brethren in Abuja.
A/P C J AKIRI (now late) himself and his family had been attending the Evangelical Church of West Africa for some time beginning from 1987 before he felt the leading of the Holy Spirit to start a house fellowship centre with the members of his family in his residence, Block 53 Flat 1, Karu, Abuja in Nov. 1990. He was later joined by Pastor S. A. Oke and members of his family, Pastor Taiwo Omolaja and members of his family and Pastor Emmanuel Abenu.
In November 1990, Pastor S. A. Oke asked A/P Akiri to apply for the use of a classroom at the L.E.D.A Primary School, Block H, Karu, Abuja, for the purpose of starting a parish of the RCCG since it became obvious that his flat could http://buyviagraonlineshop.com not contain the activities of the parish. The headmaster gave approval after many days. The first Sunday worship was held on February 17, 1991 with a total attendance of 22 people. The parish then known as RCCG Karu became the first parish of the church in the Federal Capital Territory. It later became known as RCCG Praise Assembly, Karu.
Later on in 1992 Bros. S. A. Oke, Jimi Ajibade, Taiwo Omolaja and E. Abenu took a decision to move to Garki to establish another parish of the RCCG; this parish was inaugurated in Nov. 15th, 1992 now called RCCG Chapel of Life, now the Provincial Headquarters of RCCG FCT Province 4. A/P Akiri was then asked to be in charge of the RCCG Karu Parish.
