Pastor Chris Oyakhilome of Christ Embassy seems not to know how to stay away from controversy.

 

Having barely survived the scandal, which came up due to his divource with his wife, Anita, he is alleged to be starting another crisis in his church again.

 

In recent years, Oyakhilome is said to have been charging members of his church the sum of N1,000 each as gate fee to attend the church’s New Year Crossover service.

Last year’s event, which held at their Ikeja church headquarters on Wednesday, December 31, 2014 is said to be generating controversy among the church members.

 

Gist has it that on the day of the service, those who could afford to buy the gate pass were allowed in, while others who couldn’t were asked to go back. This development has seen a lot of people grumbling, as they say segregation and discrimination is now in the church.

In the past, the church had said the reason they did such was to reduce the number of people who come for the annual service, because the venue cannot accommodate the thousands that showed up.

LAGOS INVESTING IN TECHNOLOGY TO BE AFRICA’S BIGGEST INNOVATION HUB – SANWO-OLU

Published

on

INNOVATION HUB

Lagos State Government’s investment in technology and innovation is a deliberate effort to position the State as key player in global technology space, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu said on Monday.

The Governor said his administration’s financial commitment to Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is to make Lagos Africa’s foremost centre of innovation by harnessing local capabilities in developing tech solutions that would reduce the State’s reliance on foreign tech inventions.

Sanwo-Olu spoke while receiving the management team of Oracle Africa Group who came on a courtesy visit at the Lagos House in Alausa. The team was led by the Group’s Country Director, Mr. Adebayo Sanni.

The Governor said the recently approved seed capital of N250 million was particularly aimed at enhancing young people’s innovative skills and empowering them to be tech solutions providers as the world progresses in digitisation.

He said: “Technology has gotten to a stage where we all need it to leapfrog and enhance accuracy in governance. As a Government, we have always promoted technology to take the lead and be a strong enabler for us to deliver on our promises to the people.

“We are taking steps to further collaborate with partners that will strengthen our capacity to be big player in global tech space. We just concluded a two-day Art of Technology where we announced the establishment of innovation research council and N250 million seed capital to support young innovators locally.

“We are not looking at what is going to be our immediate benefit by this investment; rather we want to create a robust technology culture that will give young people opportunities to explore their innovative skills in bringing about tech solutions and applications we can use to advance our service delivery.”

Sanwo-Olu acknowledged the technical support offered by Oracle Group to stabilise processes in the State’s civil service and in promoting accountability in administrative process. The Governor, however, said the relationship between both parties must be consolidated to boost the capacity of the State Government and keep it abreast of the latest technological solutions developed to ease processes.

Sanni described the two-decade partnership between Lagos Government and Oracle Group as “mutually beneficial”, noting that Lagos is one of the IT firm’s success story in deploying technology solutions to improve governance.

He said: “Lagos State is one of the places we use as an example globally in terms of what we have done in helping governments transform their business using technology. Oracle wants to consolidate on this partnership and make commitment that will help Lagos State sustain its growth.”

Sanni assured the Governor that the IT firm was willing to review and build on its technical assistance to the State Government for improved service delivery, while also promising to boost the capacity of the current administration in using data to take predictive analysis of situations across the State.
