Diocesan Bishop of Lagos and Dean Emeritus, Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), The Most Reverend (Dr) Ephraim Adebola Ademowo, has expressed optimism that 2018 would be a year of new beginning, in which good shall triumph over evil.

In his New Year message Archbishop Ademowo has said:

I foresee a new beginning like Prophet Isaiah did, a time of final triumph and peace, a time when good shall triumph over evil. I see a time when the seemingly consumed people of Nigeria shall be freed and liberated. There shall come a time of complete restoration of peace and beautiful things the enemies have stolen from our nation,” 

“I have no iota of doubt in the Divine abilities of God to stem the tide of all evils ravaging our land. Though the political atmosphere may be tense, cloudy and chaotic, people may be living in despair, insecurity and myriad of economic problems confronting us as a nation, our God is a specialist in putting things in order and put things in perfect control.
