Adekusibe gave this charge at the just concluded Congress of All Nigeria Conference of Evangelical Drama Ministers, ANCEDRAM Lagos Chapter.
He added that Drama Ministers should be ready for Full Time change as everything is going digital and virtuals, stressing that there is need for embracing zoom for meetings at different level and even for Ministration. He further noted that there is need to embrace YouTube and admonish Drama Minister to subscribe to each others’ channel, saying “It doesn’t bite” like Joshua Mike-Bamiloye would say as this will help them monetize their channel and make income to substitute CD selling that is no longer in vogue.
