Ebeniro thanks all

Ebeniro also thanked God for the opportunity to serve. He pointed out that the Lagos chapter of NEMA made the award possible.
“I want to thank all NEMA members in Lagos. Without their support, we won’t be able to go far with the project. I stood on the platform of NEMA to get all the support needed to make the challenge a reality.”
He also thanked the Lagos chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria and the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria. “The chairman of Lagos CAN, Bishop Stephen Adegbite, and the Chairman of Lagos PFN, Apostle Eyinnaya Okwuonu supported us all through. The success of the challenge is the outcome of collective efforts by all the churches and Christian bodies in Lagos. The Bible Society of Nigeria also played a great role in the 90-day project.” Ebeniro said.
