Speaking at an interactive session with the media, the Chairman of the Local Organising Committee for the conference, Rev. Peter Adebiyi, said the church in Africa is now in a position to address its problem instead of relying on developed nations.
"More of what is known about Africa and Africans come from the western world. There are a number of things that have been misrepresented to the world.
"If we speak for ourselves, we will be able to put the issues straight before the world. This is a way of doing just that" Adebiyi stated insisting that the conference is not a separatist affair.
According to Adebiyi who is the Anglican Bishop for Lagos West Diocese, there are some biblical worldview problems facing Africa, which must be jointly brought to the open and deliberated upon for the growth of Christian faith.
Explaining that the plan for the meeting predated the vexed issue of the ordination of a bishop in the US, Adebiyi confirmed that the unresolved controversy would definitely be deliberated on along with others by the about 250 Bishops expected at the conference.
He reiterated that the gay ordination was an aberration that should be condemned indicating that the conference would provide an opportunity for Bishops in the continent to be united on the matter.
"It will be a failure if the church cannot speak against any ungodly act. Our society abhors it. There is no place in the Bible where the issue of homosexualism is accepted "Adebiyi maintained.
Despite the sharp disagreement over the gay ordination in the Anglican community, Adebiyi expressed the hope that it would soon be resolved like other problems in the past.
"By God's grace, this issue of the gay thing will be put behind is so that we can move ahead as a church".
As the host nation, Adebiyi said Nigeria stand to gain a lot of spiritual benefits, as it would serve as an avenue to reawaken the people of the reawaken the people to get back to God.
"We are trusting that the conference would usher in an era of peace in Nigeria. We also believe that the conference would strength Nigeria as a nation" he said.
Peter led another sect and they were at odds with one another and taught different things, often counter to each other.

Reverend Peter Adebiyi, the Bishop of Lagos Diocese of the Anglican Church, to which Uncle Bola belonged, obviously thought there are such contradictions. A little over a month after Uncle Bola's death, the reverend father said in a press interview that the top hierarchy of the church was surprised to learn after his death that Uncle Bola belonged to AMORC. One, Justificus Enwang, writing in The Guardian of March 5, 2002, thought Reverent Adebiyi was only being hypocritical because two years before then Uncle Bola had publicly announced his membership of AMORC, an announcement which several newspapers published widely.
