A true prophet of God, Ayodele is ever untiring in his charity works as he says they are meant to not just restore hope in the lives of the less privileged but also to give the society hope and further the Church’s mission of spreading the Gospel far and near.
Wednesday, February 14th, 2018 therefore was another eventful date when the servant of God added a year and as usual, rolled out the drums not just to give thanks to God but also share his joy in a remarkable way with his constituency; the poor.
Primate Ayodele on that day extended humanitarian gestures to many, including members of his ministry, journalists, police, musicians, actors. Furthermore, two distinguished groups also rewarded him with two glorifying awards for his constant support toward the needy society.

Remarkably, Ayodele’s birthday fell on Valentine’s Day known as ‘day of love’. That is another reason he says he goes all out for the yearly thanksgiving which spans seven days. In the 2018 edition tagged ‘Week of Appreciation and Total Transformation’, the servant of God gladly doled out more than N15million worth of gifts and N5million cash donations. Among the expensive gifts his church members were blessed with was Toyota SUV, Honda cars, a bus for the police, among other items. Forms were also presented to pilgrims to Jerusalem, while vocational tools were presented to the beneficiaries.
