|Reverend Ntia I. Ntia|
Monday, the 27th of March 2017 will forever remain memorable in the annals of history in Akwa Ibom State University (AKSU). The maiden edition of the University’s solemn assembly was held and it was indeed a water-shed moment.
The event which was put together by the Students Union of Akwa Ibom State University saw both Staff and students of the University come together to seek the face of God as well as intercede on many issues as it concerns the growth, development and progress of the University. The anchor scripture of the event was taken from Psalms 68 verse 1 - “may God arise, may his enemies be scattered; may his foes flee before him”. The event started at 10am and had in attendance management staff of the University.
The praise and worship session of the event was led by Tehila choir (AKSU Chapel of Praise). The Registrar of the University, Mr. John E. Udo had earlier informed the congregation that the primary purpose of the solemn assembly was to call on God to put a stop to the cases of incessant death among the staff and student populace. He declared that in the course of the Prayer summit, the University will seek to enter into new covenant of life with God.
The servant of God – Rev. Ntia Ntia and speaker of the day mounted the podium at 1.12pm and for some 80 minutes declared the mind of God as touching on the students, staff and the University as a whole. He encouraged the students to gather some form of Jet Speed and squarely face their studies in other to come out in flying colours. According to him, “no one goes forward by looking backward”. Reverend Ntia reminded the congregation that for God only fights for His children, those who honour Him, those who serve Him and those who commit their ways unto Him.
God’s servant defined power as “the ability to cause forceful changes – against all odds”, and went on to explain that types of power included Spiritual power, Will power and Faith Power. He spoke against cultism, as being an unnecessary distraction that student should run-away from, as the end is always death (1Peter 8:5). The high point of Rev. Ntia’s message was a prophecy that “what took other Universities 30 years to achieve, AKSU will achieve same (and more), under 10 years”.
The programme featured various prayer sessions on Repentance, Covenant of Life with God, prayer against death and prayer for the Management, Development/peace of the University.

The Vice-Chancellor noted that Rev. Ntia was a renowned minister of the Gospel that God has raised for such a time as this.
The prayer summit and solemn assembly came to an end at about 3pm.
