Do you know that exactly 20 years ago today, those individuals would have been wiped off the surface of this earth in a single stroke.
They were all on board a plane that crashed…But God intervened: miraculously they all survived without a anyone sustaining injuries.
Otherwise, there would not be THISDAY Newspapers , Arise TV, Arise Play;
There might not be The Nation; There would not be The Cable; so many great initiatives would have been aborted.
But God did not allow it; for he knew what was ahead and he used his mighty hands to stop Satan in his track.
Take a look at the photographs below and also read the accounts of the accident by Simon Kolawole and Waziri Adio, two of the survivors and you would appreciate why you have to join us in thanking God for his great mercies which endure forever.
