Rev. Chris Oyakhilome presents 650-capacity hall to AAU, JANUARY 27, 2014.
The President of Believers’ Love World (Christ Embassy), Rev. Chris Oyakhilome, on Monday presented a 650-capacity auditorium to the Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma, Edo State.
He handed over the building to the governor and Visitor to the university, Governor Adams Oshiomhole. Oyakhilome, an alumnus of the university, also presented a 100 KVA generator to the institution.
He said he was encouraged to undertake the project following the determination of the university leadership to provide for the needs of the students.
He said, “This is to serve as a catalyst for others to join hands in developing the country. The problem is not the management of our natural resources but managing the potential locked up in the minds of our teeming youths whose education cannot be separated from the aspiration of the country.”
As a mark of his commitment to further uplift the institution, Oyakhilome offered to “provide solar-powered lantern to each student resident on campus.”
He commended Oshiomhole for his developmental strides in the state.
Responding, the governor commended the cleric for his “vision and commitment,” describing him as a global icon.
He said, “Pastor Chris is not only a good ambassador of the university, but also that of the state and the country.
“We are here not only to inaugurate a building but also to attest that by his conduct, he is giving to others.”
