RCCG Commissions Classroom Block In Ogijo High School
THE Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) has commissioned a block of classrooms built and donated by the church to Ogijo Community High School, Ogijo in Ogun State.
Commissioning the block, recently, Pastor-in-charge of Province 33, Pastor Dele Jaiyeoba, said the church “saw a need that we can meet and agreed with the school authority to provide the block of classrooms.”
According to him, the school had some classrooms, but they were not enough to cater for the teeming population of pupils, some of whom take their classes in the open. This moved the authority of the church “to build the block of classrooms, which are properly furnished and fitted with fans, tables and chairs, to make learning easy for our children.”
Pastor Jaiyeoba said he is “trusting God that some of the pupils that will be taught in these classrooms will grow up to become leaders in Nigeria, doctors, lawyers, teachers, accountants and other professionals, national and international icons. RCCG has spent about N1bn to meet the needs of people both in Nigeria and other parts of the 138 nations of the world where we have presence.” Some of these needs, he said, include boreholes, grading of roads, supply of street lights, medical outreaches, as well as donation of school supplies.”
In her remarks at the commissioning ceremony, the Ogun State Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, Mrs. Modupe Modeta (represented by the Director of Secondary Education in the Ministry, Mrs. Abosede Ogunleye), said the gesture was “unique as it constitutes another clear testimony of the relentless effort of the church in assisting government in uplifting the education standard of the state.”
She noted that as “education is the most viable tool and catalyst for all-round development, it is highly imperative for all stakeholders to contribute their meaningful quota. No matter how charitable, benevolent and buoyant a government is, we still need the goodwill and support of all and sundry, especially dedicated philanthropists and other religious organizations, to make our dream of building an enviable education industry come true.”
Welcoming guests to the ceremony, the principal of the school, Mr. T.A. Adekoya, thanked the RCCG for the gesture and appealed to Pastor E.A Adeboye to further intervene in other areas of the school’s need.
He said the history of Pastor E.A Adeboye Block began on March 4, 2015 when the school authority contacted him for support. “By April, 24, 2015, our Daddy had ordered the construction of this building with the required financial backup needed,” he said.
