Pastor Chris Builds School For A Village in Northern Nigeria
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome has built a primary school for a the village of Yola in North east nigeria.
State-of-the-art primary school commissioned by COF International in Yola, Northeast Nigeria.
On the 23rd of October, the InnerCity Mission for Children, under the auspices of the Pastor Chris Oyakhilome Foundation International, commissioned a standard nursery and primary school in Demsa community, Yola in Adamawa state, North-East Nigeria. This laudable gesture was extended to provide quality free education and educational supplies to indigent children who are least likely to access education.
Statistics show that one in every five of the world’s out-of-school children is in Nigeria. Only 61% of children aged 6 to 11 regularly attend primary school, and only 35.6% of children aged 36 to 59 months receive early childhood education. In Northern Nigeria, the picture is even bleaker: 2.8 million children are in need of education-in-emergencies support in three conflict-affected states (Borno, Yobe, and Adamawa).
The man of God, Reverend (Dr.) Chris Oyakhilome, once said, “instead of cursing the darkness, light a candle.” Driven by these words, and in response to the critical situation in Northern Nigeria, the Chris Oyakhilome Foundation International (COFI), commissioned a tuition-free school for indigent children in Yola, Adamawa state. The commissioning of the school was witnessed by the federal, state and local authorities, esteemed Pastors and partners of the Loveworld Nation, religious leaders and other dignitaries.
The line-up of events for the occasion included special dance presentations by the children and indigenes of the community, school kit distribution and a tour of the school facility. The guests also got to see the InnerCity Mission’s large-scale food kitchen from where the school feeding program in the state would be executed. The feeding program will provide every pupil with at least one nutritious meal each school day.
The newly commissioned school in Yola, is one of the seven centers of the InnerCity Mission Schools situated in Africa and Asia. The expected outcome of the educational program is for all children to access and complete their basic primary education within a safe learning environment, while gaining the skills and knowledge required for lifelong learning.

Feeney gave away his fortune in secret for many years, until a business dispute resulted in his identity being revealed in 1997. Over the course of his life, Feeney has given away more than $8 billion.
On September 14, 2020, Feeney completed his four-decade mission and signed the documents to shutter the Atlantic Philanthropies. The ceremony, which happened over Zoom with the Atlantic Philanthropies’ board, included video messages from Bill Gates and former California Gov. Jerry Brown. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi sent an official letter from the U.S. Congress thanking Feeney for his work.
Philanthropical Works of Chuck Feeney
Feeney, who can best be described as the James Bond of philanthropy, started giving away his fortune in secret for many years, until a business dispute resulted in his identity being revealed in 1997.
Feeney created The Atlantic Philanthropies, and in 1984, secretly transferred his entire 38.75% stake in DFS, then worth about $500 million, to the foundation. Not even his business partners knew that he no longer personally owned any part of DFS.
The largest single beneficiary of Feeney’s giving is his alma mater Cornell University, which has received nearly $1 billion in direct and Atlantic gifts, including a donation of $350 million enabling the creation of Cornell’s New York City Tech Campus.
He has also supported the modernization of public-health structures in Vietnam.
He gave away his last $7 million in late 2016, to the same recipient of his first charitable donations: Cornell. Over the course of his life, he has given away more than $8 billion.
That’s Feeney—understated profile, oversize impact. No longer a secret, his extreme charity and big-bet grants have won over the most influential entrepreneurs and philanthropists. His stark generosity and gutsy investments influenced Bill Gates and Warren Buffett when they launched the Giving Pledge in 2010

Akufo-Addo extends ban on public gathering by two weeks
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has extended the ban on public gathering including religious activities and funerals by an additional two weeks.
He made this known during his eighth televised address to the nation on the outbreak of the novel Coronavirus in the country on Sunday, April 26, 2020.
Akufo-Addo said, “I have, accordingly, by Executive Instrument, extended for another two (2) weeks the suspension of all public and social gatherings, as set out in E.I 64 of 15th March, 2020, effective tomorrow, 1 am, Monday, 27th April.”
He continued, “I am encouraged that so many of our trotros, taxis, and buses are operating with a minimal number of passengers, and our businesses and supermarkets are enforcing the need for social distancing, the use of hand sanitizers and the wearing of masks for all patrons and staff.”
President Akufo-Addo observed that markets in the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis are adhering to the directive of social distancing, an excellent example for market women all over the country.
He indicated that, “I am fully aware of the sacrifices in reduced revenues that all businesses and enterprises are suffering. But, I believe we have no option but to sacrifice to defeat this virus. This is the time for sacrifice, so that we do not have to bear a greater cost in the future.”
Akufo-Addo expressed his displeasure with some Ghanaians aiding some West African nationals to enter the country illegally, despite the closure of our borders.
He said, some of these West African nationals who have been arrested, have later tested positive for the virus.

He, therefore, called on all Ghanaians to look out for each other and stated that, “not only will persons who enter our country illegally be strictly dealt with, but so will Ghanaians who facilitate their entry.”
Fellow Ghanaians, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has spoken.
