By Apostle Muyiwa Adeyemi, Chief PRO, Unification
The town of Ikare, Ondo State, Nigeria went into wild jubilation as the Owa Ale of Ikareland, Oba Samuel S. K. Adedoyin JP, inaugurated the ultra-modern classrooms donated by the world-renowned evangelist and philanthropist, Rev Mother Esther Abimbola Ajayi, to Moses Orimolade Comprehensive High School to get its autonomy.
The inauguration of the project was one of the key programmes for the third edition of the annual pilgrimage to the hometown of St Moses Orimolade Tunolase, founder of the Cherubim & Seraphim Church.
Oba Adedoyin, who thanked the Supreme Head of the C & S worldwide, His Most Eminence, Prophet Dr Solomon Adegboyega Alao, for leading the church aright, said if the C & S had been united before the time Unification started, many laudable projects would have been done in Ikare in honour of St Moses Orimolade Tunolase.
He said he was particularly happy with the role being played by Mother Esther Ajayi in Christendom and his love for the church which made her build the best classrooms with modern facilities in Ikareland.
The monarch promised to join the leadership of the church to foster unity and advised all Seraphs to do away with all divisive tendencies.
The Owa Ale said, “Ikare is our Jerusalem in Nigeria but we can do all that is befitting to honour Orimolade if the C & S Church remains united and build a big institution in this town. The C & S is big enough to do that and I pray it shall be possible during the tenure of Baba Alao.”
Moses Orimolade Comprehensive High School was said to have been built several years back on the Mercy land. But when it was no longer functioning because of the lack of the facility, Ondo State Government merged it with another school named Agbaode who was the first Owa Ale of Ikareland.
The Chairman of the Building Committee, Special Apostle Akin Owolabi, said, “The school was in that dilapidated condition until last year when Mama Ajayi came and donated N1m and Mama Alao also donated N500,000 to rehabilitate the existing structure.
“But for the school to have its full autonomy, more classrooms are needed and Mother Ajayi came to the rescue and build the needed classrooms with four modern toilets for male, four toilets for female and borehole to provide water for the school. With the facility provided, the school will no longer bear Agbaode/Orimolade Comprehensive High School but St Moses Orimolade Comprehensive High School.”
He said for the facility in the school to reach excellence Seraphs are known for, modern library and science laboratory needed to be provided.
Baba Olori, who led thousands of the Seraphs and Baba Aladuras to the annual Ikare pilgrimage, assured the monarch and the Tunolase family that there would be a heavy presence of the church in the town because “Ikare is the source of St Moses Orimolade Tunolase, the greatest prophet from Africa.”
