Barely two months after he was heavily criticized for receiving a private jet as birthday gift, Pastor Oritsejafor, the President of Christian Association of Nigeria, has donated cars, tricycles and other items to the less privileged.
His Special Assistant on Media and Public Affairs, Kenny Ashaka, said the Oritsejafor gave out six brand new Hyundai cars, 15 tricycles, 100 grinding machines, 3.8KVA power generating plants and 200 bags of rice in Warri, Delta State, on Wednesday.
According to the statement by Ashaka, Oritsejafor made the donations to reduce poverty in the Nigeria.
The yearly empowerment program was organized by the World of Life Bible Church through Eagle Flight Micro Finance Bank owned by the church.
He said the responsibility of government at all levels was to cater for all Nigerians, stressing that the government would have failed if it refused to help the poor.
Oritsejafor said, “Why is it that wealthy Nigerians and corporate organizations cannot do much more than what the church is doing in terms of bringing succour to the people?
“There are institutions, corporate bodies, industrial establishments that are entrenched in different communities and are making millions of Naira. You want to look at how much some of these companies are putting back into the communities. It would be ridiculous how meagre it is.”
