The president, Believers’ Love World (Christ Embassy), Rev. Chris Oyakhilome yesterday handed over a 600-capacity ultra-modern auditorium to the Ambrose Alli University, (AAU), Ekpoma-Edo State.

The facility which has 100 KVA sound proof generator, was handed over to the Edo State Governor and visitor to the university, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, who then handed it over to the university authorities.

Oyakhilome, an alumnus of the university equally pledged to donate a solar powered lantern to each of the student resident on campus, in addition to executing solar powered street light for the hostel.

The religious leader said he was spurred by the determination of the leadership of the university to provide for the needs of the students, adding that a former pro-chancellor of the school, Ambassador Aziz Garuba had approached him for assistance.

“It is to use this as the first phase and 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 potentials locked up in the minds of our teeming youths whose education cannot be separated from their aspiration

He commended governor Oshiomhole for his developmental strides in the state, saying such will galvanize others to strife for more.

Governor Oshiomhole in his response, commended the Cleric for his “vision and commitment,” describing him as a global icon.

He said “Pastor Chris is not just a good ambassador of the University, but of the state and the entire country. We are here, not only to commission a building but to attest that by his conduct, he is giving to others.”

Earlier while acknowledging the gesture, the Acting Vice Chancellor of the University, Prof. (Mrs.) Cordelia Agbebaku, said the gesture was unprecedented, as according to her, “it is the first time an individual is donating such an edifice to the University since its inception”.

She said, “This is not surprising because the donor as a man of God, knows the importance of being a cheerful giver, aside from being an alumnus of this University.”

The Acting VC also expressed gratitude to governor Oshiomhole whose support, she said has continued to spur development in the University.

She also commended the release of N300 million by the governor out of the N500 million he promised to give to the university in late 2013.
