Abuja based Pastor of Champions Royal Assembly, Kubwa, Joshua Iginla on Sunday, gave out 32 cars out of which were 16 SUVs to celebrate his birthday. Iginla also gave out money running into several millions of naira to the aged, widows, orphanages and scholarships to orphans from nursery school to university.
Six Nollywood actors and actresses got Hummer jeep 3 series, Mercedes G-Wagon and Mercedes CLS 550. They include Jide Kosoko, Francis Duru, Alex Usifo, Ngozi Osondu, Thelma Nwosu and Sunday Omobolanle, popularly known as Babaluwe.
Artisans got generators and cash gifts while the widows got deep freezers, rice and cash gifts ranging from N150,000 to N1.5 million. Treasure Orphanage Foundation, Nyanya, Divine Wound Orphanage, Kubwa and Christ Home Foundation, Kuje, got N1.5 million each and rice while some orphans in the homes were awarded scholarships from nursery to university.
Iginla said he had 782 widows and orphans he caters for.
“It doesn’t matter to me if I trek home as I have given even the car that I personally drive. I can only drive one car and live in one house at a time. This understanding is what has taught me that when I die, others will inherit my assets… The beauty of life is not in its duration but in its donation. I have not seen some of the beneficiaries before in my life or spoken to them.”
Some of the Nollywood actors confirmed that they were meeting the pastor for the first time and Yoruba actor Jide Kosoko also commended the philanthropic act.
Iginla had, in 2015, given 18 cars and millions of naira as birthday gifts to people to celebrate his birthday.
