The last round of the 2018 Regional Convention of Jehovah’s Witnesses with thousands of delegates from Oyo, Ogun and Osun states attending will come to an end today.

The 9th week of the nine series of the annual convention which was organized for Jehovah’s Witnesses simultaneously in 230 lands around the world  commenced  on Friday, December 7, at Ifatumo Village, along Lalupon Ejioku Road, Ibadan.

A statement issued by the media contact for the convention, Mr. Olayinka Dada, and made available to FrontPage in Ibadan on Saturday, said the three-day event would feature 54 presentations, each exploring the theme, “Be Courageous”.

It would be recalled that the previous gathering held in the city was conducted in American Sign Language (ASL) , where over 600 physically challenged persons and others  from across five states of the South West attended the three day convention .

The statement reads in part: “When you look at the news today, you can clearly see that people of all ages are dealing with more anxieties and fears than ever before.  It takes courage to face these pressures.

“On Saturday, the programme will include baptism for those who have dedicated their lives to Jehovah and are determined to be courageous in facing life challenges.

“Each day’s programme will start by 8:20 a.m. and end on Friday and Saturday by 3:50 p.m. and on Sunday by 2:50 p.m.

“Admission to each event is free and no collection is taken.”
