Oil firm donates block of classrooms to community, church

In a bid to boost the education of younger ones in his community, the Managing Director of Movon Oil and Gas, Mr. Wale Ogunmade, has donated a block of classrooms to Wesley Methodist Primary School, Ode-Aye in Okitipupa Local Government area of Ondo State. The building, which Ogunmade built in memory of his father, Chief Claudius Olabamiji Ogunmade, who died 14 years ago, according to him, is part of efforts to give back to his people and community, as well as enhance their education development. The Managing Director, who is a former Chairman of Okitipula Local Government Council, said the project further underscored of his conviction that the benefits of leaning under a conducive environment, especially at the foundation level of education and the need to support government and communities to provide quality educational could not be overemphasised.

The project, which comprises classrooms for pupils, the headteacher’s office and toilet facilities for pupils and teachers, was inaugurated 0by the Methodist Archbishop, Archbishop Amos Akinlose Akindeko, who was joined at the event by the Methodist Bishop of Owo Diocese, Bishop Solomon Abayomi Adegbite. While inaugurating the block of classrooms, the cleric, who lauded Ogunmade for the gesture, however, pointed out that the project was a contribution toward the growth of the work of God, and to further boost the education devel-opment of the people. Archbishop Akindeko said the building project was a clarion call on the sons and daughters of Ode-Aye at home and in the Diaspora to give a thought to developmental issue of the town by contributing meaningfully towards its growth.

The Baba Ijo of Methodist Church Nigeria, Gbogi in Akure, Chief Ayodele Ogunmade, who represented the Ogunmade family at the inauguration and handing over ceremony, gave kudos to the donor for the school project. He said the oil magnate through the contribution to the school and church deemed it necessary to extend his philanthropist gesture to the community as he had been doing to various churches in Akure and Lagos respectively. Meanwhile, the management and students of the school, who hinted that the classroom block would address the shortage of classrooms confronting the school, however, confirmed that the building would remain a source of joy to them, the Methodist Church in general and the community in particular.
