Jehovah’s Witnesses have adopted Nigerian Pidgin as a formal language of worship. Thousands of delegates that attended the three-day “Imitate Jesus!” Regional Convention of Jehovah’s Witnesses concluded Sunday in parts of the country erupted into applause following the release of Bible-based publications translated into Nigerian Pidgin by Jehovah’s Witnesses. They include the booklets Tich Your Pikin and Gud Niuz Wey Kom From God! and the tracts Who Dey Kontro Dis World? and Sofa Sofa Go Fit End?
Other highlights included a special Bible discourse entitled “Jesus Christ, World Conqueror—How and When?”, a moving Bible-based drama that portrays significant events in Jesus’ life, interviews and demonstrations on practical ways to imitate Jesus today.
At Ota, Ogun State, a total of 12 Regional Conventions were held this year at the Assembly Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, attended by over 65,000 delegates and during which over 500 newly dedicated ones were baptised.
Many other conventions were equally held across Nigeria during the same period, attended by hundreds of thousands of delegates.
