The Executive Secretary of the Nigerian Christian Pilgrim Commission (NCPC), Bishop Stephen Adegbite, has said that he would change the face of pilgrimage in Nigeria.

Bishop Adegbite expressed gratitude to the entire Nigerian christendom for the support he has received since his announcement as the new Executive Secretary of NCPC.
He affirmed that the position he holds is key to bringing positive change to the face of Pilgrimage in Nigeria.
Bishop Adegbite promised that with the help of God Almighty and the support of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), he would put NCPC and pilgrimage on a high pedestal.

He further intimated his guests of his visit to the Israeli Ambassador who informed him that Israel gates are now open to pilgrims.
He affirmed that he is eternally grateful to God for placing him at the helm of affairs in NCPC while assuring that he is ever ready to make a positive impact that would be found worthy of emulation as he pilots the affairs of pilgrimage in the country.
He was equally grateful to the OAIC for deeming it worthy to pay him a congratulatory visit.
He cashed in on the opportunity to charge them to call for prayers for peace in Nigeria.
