It was a joyous moment for the whole congregation of The Church of The Lord (Prayer Fellowship) Ijebu Ode on Sunday 28th October 2018 during the 68th Adult Harvest Thanksgiving Service attended by former Special Assistant to President Goodluck Jonathan on Political Affairs, Dr. Doyin Okupe, immediate past Deputy Governor of Ogun State, Prince Segun Adesegun and the Ogun PDP gubernatorial candidate, Hon. Oladipupo Adebutu where they donated cash and building materials worth N11million (Eleven million naira) for the reconstruction of the church.
The service reached it’s climax when Dr Okupe announced on behalf of himself, Adesegun and Adebutu their decision to sponsor the reconstruction of the church.
Okupe while addressing the congregation said “I was informed that the church will require ₦10.3 million for it to be reconstructed, well, myself and my brothers have agreed to sponsor the reconstruction”. He went further saying “it wasn’t a mere coincident for me, Prince Segun Adesegun and Hon Oladipupo Adebutu to be present at this service, people should be aware of the fact that the three of us attended Igbobi College in Lagos, and we have had an existing relationship long before now”.
While concluding his address, he announced ₦1 million cash donation on behalf of Prince Segun Adesegun, #5 million worth of building materials on behalf of Hon Oladipupo Adebutu and ₦5 million cash as his personal donation making a total of #11 million. The whole congregation erupted in jubilation as they sang praises and dance to appreciate the Lord.
Bishop B I Okewale of Ijebu South Dioceses led other ministers and the congregation in prayer for the donors with special prayer for Hon Oladipupo Adebutu who seeks to govern Ogun State come 2019.
