The Senior Pastor of Champions Royal Assembly, Kubwa, Abuja, Joshua Iginla, on Sunday gave out 22 cars and millions of naira ranging from N50,000 to N500,000. Some Nollywood actors benefitted from the gesture.

The pastor, who celebrated his birthday and that of his wife at the service, also unveiled 33 book titles written by him.

Presenting the cars, among which were 10 SUV cars to the beneficiaries, Iginla challenged the well-to-do in the society to assist the less-privileged.

The pastor, who said that he had tasted poverty and knew how it felt, said the less-privileged of today could become important personalities tomorrow.

“My birthday is all about giving to the needy. What I do here is just 10 per cent of what I do secretly.

“I don’t give to show up; I give to teach people and to provoke them to give. I have many people on scholarship, I have widows on my payroll, we have rescued prostitutes and empowered them with skills acquisition programmes, I have orphans I am taking care of.

“I have schools of the handicapped that we have been assisting and the physically-challenged students irrespective of their religions. Gospel is practical, not only spiritual,” he said.

Iginla also said that was the third time that he would be giving out all his cars without leaving any one behind for himself.

Unveiling the books, Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State, commended Iginla for his humility and hard work in writing the books.

Ortom, who recalled that he was a school dropout and later a motor park tout in Gboko, said God made him Governor of Benue in spite of the “political persecution” he suffered.

“At this time in my country’s history that there is dearth of leadership, I commit myself to lead with the fear of God that will translate to equity, integrity, justice and fairness.

“I will strive to unite the people of this country,” he said.

The occasion was attended by Senators Grace Bent, Anthony Kila and Effiong Bob, Onyeka Onwenu, Tope Alabi and Chris Morgan.

There were also 16 Nollywood actors at the service, including Zack Orji, Francis Duru, Alex Usifo and Fathia Balogun, six of whom were beneficiaries of the car gifts. (NAN)
