Teaching out to the needy has been a part and parcel of Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG). That is why the RCCG Lagos Province 10, Orile Agege, reached out to pupils of Government Senior College, Agege, Lagos with five desktop computers and two UPS.
Pastor-in-Charge of Province, Pastor Joseph Olagbadegun, said the gesture was in line with the directives from the church’s General Overseer Pastor Enoch Adeboye.
“Pastor Adeboye said we should give back to the society what God has given to the church,” he said.
Explaining the rationale behind giving computers, Oladgbadegun said without the requisite ICT knowledge, present-day pupils will find it difficult to understand the modern-day technology.
He however implored the pupils to face their studies and spend les on social media. The Tutor-General/Permanent Secretary, Education District 1, Mrs Adebowale Ogunfidodo, who received the equipment said: “We appreciate your kind gesture for presenting these sets of computers to our students.”
She advised the pupils to maintain the equipment.
The Vice-Principal (Administration), Mrs Farinde Bolanle, also thanked the church for remembering the school, which she said has the largest population in Lagos State. However, she urged them to do more.
The school Senior Girl, Ikeoluwa Mustapha also thanked the church for giving them the privilege to access technology. Present at the presentation were: Assistant Pastor-in-charge of the Province, Ayodele John, Pastor Ajayi Samson, Pastor Mrs Adeleye Deborah, Pastor Isaac Biyi, Pastor Esther Akinsola, Director Senior Tutor of Education, Mrs Buluro Abosede, and the Vice Principal (Academics), Mr Shoyebo Kolawole.
