Declaring the competition open, the General Secretary of BSN, Dare Ajiboye represented by the Publishing Manager of BSN, Deacon Ayo Durodola asked the contestants to see the competition as a friendly one as the purpose of the contest was to make them internalize the Word of God, adding that it was to help the youth to study the Bible and live according to God’s commandments. “Many people have left the path of God. We are where we are today because we have abandoned the ways of the Lord,” he said. He reminded the youths of the benefits of obeying God and urged them not to depart from His presence.
