While urging the congregation to make judicious use of the building and the equipments donated along with it, Alowolodu said many more of such benefits could be achieved should the church be more fervent in their service to God.
The donor, Hon. Ajayi, in his remarks described the successful completion of the church building as a dream come through, saying it has been his life long aspiration to build a house for God.
Using the occasion to thank God for his fiftieth birthday coming up the following day, Ajayi said with all that God had done for him, he is spurred to serve Him more.
He also thanked the Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN for all his supports and the healthy relationship that exist between them.
