Church, Covenant varsity community donate vehicles to Navy, Police
The Living Faith Church and Covenant University (CU) Community Development Impact Initiative Committee (CDIIC) have donated two operational vehicles to the Nigerian Navy and Nigeria Police in Ota, Ogun State.
Vice-Chancellor of the university, Prof. Abiodun Adebayo, while presenting the vehicles yesterday, said the donation was part of the university’s community service mandate and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
He stressed that Nigeria was recently ranked low in the global peace index, hence the need to constantly empower security agencies with modern communication equipment and mobility.
He also urged individuals and corporate organisations to support security agencies in fighting crime in society.
Resident Pastor, Faith Tabernacle, David Oyedepo (Jnr), who presented the keys to the vehicles to the security operatives, noted that in every society, security is the backbone of peace and peace is a secret of progress.
BUT responding, Commanding Officer, Nigerian Navy School of Music, Lt.-Col. Joseph Golu and Area Commander, Ota Command, Nigeria Police Force, Mohammed Sanni, expressed appreciation for the generous gesture and assured them of their proper use.
Earlier, Chairperson of the CDIIC, Dr. Tayo George, noted that the university since its inception in 2002 had been involved in many community projects, including the sinking of boreholes and others.
In his remarks, the Olota of Ota, Prof. Adeyemi Abdulkabir Obalanlege, lauded the gesture of the university.
