Pastor Olukoya of Mountain of Fire Gives N40m To First Class Graduates
In his usual style of rewarding academic excellence, the General Overseer of Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries, Dr. Daniel Olukoya, has 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 year the number rose from 15 to 77 so Dr. Olukoya settled for cash, which they could use to further their education or start something. 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.
