Chris Okafor Foundation Empowered Trained Artisans and Widows

The newly launched Chris Okafor Foundation has put smile into the face of about 50 people who were trained by the foundations in various fields after which they were assisted with cash to begin their own work and be self-reliance. The cash presentation event which also serves as a medium to also give to the widows was because of the mandate given to the General Overseer Of Liberation City Dr. Chris Okafor and it is to put smile on the faces of the less privilege in the society.

Speaking at the graduation ceremony of those trained in different work field, the pastor said one of the responsibility of the church is not only to delivered people or win their soul for Christ  but also to empowered them, with skills and  cash so they can be independent, Dr. Chris also challenged all the graduates to make sure that the purpose of the training is  not jeopardized, he pray for them to be successful and also call on other body of Christ to emulates the gesture of the church as this will reduce the rate of unemployment in the country, some of the graduates who spoke at the graduation ceremony thank those behind Chris Okafor Foundation for the wisdom to bring smile to their faces.

In the same vein about 100 hundred widows were also given food items as part of the church’s monthly widow empowerment and the Senior Pastor of the church, Dr. Chris Okafor said the move is one of his own modest way to contribute to the development of the country, he said widows are God property and they must be carter for, the widows were given bags of rice and other cooking material as well as cash gifts.
Meanwhile the pastor that is fondly called the oracle of God has called on Nigerians to pray against fire incident particularly in our market as he also pray against accident and more terrorist attack, while telling those in government to be more alive urging Nigerians to continue to pray for the government.

Speaking on the recent publication that malign his personality in Punch newspaper and some online media, Dr. Okafor said he decided to keep quite on the allegation has he describe the whole story as false, he said the mandate given to him by God cannot be discourage by such publications, he remarked that his wife failed to say the truth, and that while she was pregnant of the only boy they had, the wife jumped from a two story building because of little misunderstanding believing that if she died it will affect his ministry, stating further that he will not react to the issue as he has handed the whole issue over to his media aides who will throw little light on the saga.
