The President of the Believers Love World Incorporated, also known as Christ Embassy, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, has donated the sum of one billion naira to Benson Idahosa University to upgrade their faculty of engineering.

Pastor Oyakhilome made this donation on Friday at a special convocation ceremony of the Benson Idahosa University where he was conferred with the award of Doctor of Divinity.

Oyakhilome, who announced the donation during his speech, also explained the rationale behind his donation.

According to him, the late Archbishop Idahosa, having greatly influenced his life and ministry, it was only natural for him to feel the need to do same for the youths.

Oyakhilome said: “The Archbishop Benson Idahosa was one of the most remarkable and inspiring personalities of the 20th Century. It is a fact of life that those who did not have the privilege to meet him are blessed to meet him through many of us.

“The impact of the archbishop on me as an individual is unquantifiable. Many times, people would ask me why I talk about the late Archbishop Benson Idahosa more than anybody.

“It will surprise you to know that as a young man, I was working with the archbishop in the mail room in the Church of God Mission in Benin City.

“I was blessed to have worked with the late Archbishop Benson Idahosa. While working with him, I had the blessing and benefit of seeing the archbishop pass by my table everyday to his office.”

Pastor Chris then called on well-meaning Nigerians who have the resources to support institutions of learning in the country as they are organisations committed to the development of the best potentials in Nigeria. (Channels TV)
