In continuation of his desire to reward academic excellence, the General Overseer of Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries, MFM, Dr. Daniel Olukoya, weekend, splashed N40 million on members of the church who graduated with first class honours degree from different universities across the country.
The event which is third in the series made the 77 graduates smile
home with N 500,000 each. The previous first class graduates went home
with a car each, but this time around, Dr. Olukoya settled for cash,
against the background of the number of graduates, which rose from 15
last year to 77 this year.
Besides, the graduates will have the opportunity of using the monetary gifts to pursue their higher degree programmes.
The breakdown of the graduates showed that University of Lagos
(UNILAG) top the list with 12 graduates which cut across various
disciplines, followed by University of Ibadan with nine of such
graduates while one is from Central University College, Accra, Ghana.
Speaking at the occasion, Pastor Shade Olukoya, who presented the
award praised the graduates for dedication to their academic work and
serving God at the same time.
According to her, the award was put in place to reward members of MFM
who are dedicated to their academic work while also creating time to
serve the Almighty God.
Her words; “this is a reward for hard work, dedication to duty and above all, service to God and mankind”.
The programme which took place at the Prayer City along Lagos-Ibadan
Express way during the Power-Must-Change-Hands programme attracted
people from different aspects of life. On hand to present the cash gift
to the graduates was Prof. Akin Osibogun, Chief Medical Director,
University of Lagos Teaching Hospital.
