Chris Oyakhilome donates N1 billion to BIU
Christ Embassy leader Pastor Chris Oyakhilome has donated the amazing sum of N1 billion to the Benson Idahosa University.
Oyakhilome made the generous donation during the university’s convocation ceremony, where he was conferred a honourary Doctor of Divinity degree.
The money is to be used to build a Faculty of Engineering in the school’s campus in Benin City, Edo state.
“The Archbishop Benson Idahosa was one of the most remarkable and inspiring personality of the 20th Century. It is a fact of life that those who did not have the privilege to get to meet him are blessed to meet him through many of us. The impact of the Archbishop on me as an individual is unquantifiable,” Oyakhilome said during the ceremony
“Many times, people would ask me why I talk about the late Archbishop Benson Idahosa more than anybody. It will surprise you to know that as a young man, I was working with the Archbishop in the mail room in the Church of God Mission in Benin City. I was blessed to have worked with the late Archbishop Benson Idahosa. While working with him, I had the blessing and benefit of seeing the Archbishop passed by my table everyday to his office,” he said.
