“We decided to extend it to the South West even though; we don’t have a church in Ibadan to make it for everybody irrespective of tribe and religion. We have been doing this for a long time, we have free schools, free restaurant and specialist hospital, these are achieving with no support from anywhere but from the offerings and tithes from the church” Apostle Chibuzor stated.

“I have said it and I will repeat here again, when we started the first school in over 10 years ago, some people were asking if it is sustainable, and I said if it is God’s projects, God will sustain it, we have 14 schools now and still counting. The point is that the funds are coming from offerings and tithes from the church, it is God’s money and we decided to use for the God’s people. We don’t have NGOs, I repeat, there is no NGO whether it is local or international that is partnering with OPM. It is not that we don’t welcome partnership, our hands are open for the partnership,” Apostle Chibuzor concluded.

He then called on other well-meaning indigenes of the state to support the efforts of the government in reducing the economic effect of COVID-19 pandemic on the people.

He also enjoined residents of the state to adhere strictly to the preventive measures outlined by the government in a bid to prevent the spread of the virus.
