“We noticed the gap and a unit in our church started it over seven years ago and it has since become an annual event for us.
“This year, we decentralized around six various locations like Idimu, Agege, Ikorodu, Lekki, Badagry, and Oregun in Lagos so that many people can benefit.
“We are doing 20,000 children this year and the reports getting to me show the pupils and their parents are happy. What is the value of a church if it can contribute to the society?”
Pastor Sam Adeyemi told the journalist that Federal Government is doing its best; he went further to encourage church leaders to give support to the governments at all levels in resolving societal issues especially educational issues.
The helpless people are to be looked after by the country so as to prevent any form of dangers that may occur in the future, and the government should take advantage of this opportunity to create a lasting positive impression.
“Leadership is a phenomenal opportunity. Selfishness and leadership don’t go together. It is a sacrifice that makes the best of a leader’s opportunity,” he said.
“I want to encourage our leaders to pay more attention to these younger lives because they are our tomorrow as a nation.”
