The contributions of Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, to the development of humanity and growth of All Saints’ Church, Jericho, Ibadan, were on Saturday, November 2, 2019 recognised and rewarded by the church.
Akeredolu’s exemplary conduct in governance and in the service of God was, once again, rewarded by the church with the Philanthropic Selfless Award.
The award showcases the governor as an Ambassador of Christ in Governance.
All Saints’ Church, Jericho, Ibadan, presented the award to Governor Akeredolu at its Gala/ Award Night to mark its 60th anniversary.
Akeredolu was for many years a member of the Church’s Choir until he became the Ondo State governor.
In his remarks, Governor Akeredolu, who was represented by his Chief of Staff, Chief Olugbenga Ale, thanked the church for the recognition.
He described the occasion as another opportunity to testify to the efficacy of prayers and faithfulness of God to His words.
He said: “I assure you that I won’t for any reason derail in whatever you have found in me that you are proud of.”
The Choir of the Church used the occasion to appreciate Akeredolu for his unparalleled support to the choir at all times.
The governor was therefore appointed as the Grand Patron of the Church’s Choir.
