The Bishop of Remo Anglican Diocese, The Right Reverend Olusina Fape, has described the Mother of the Diocese and Iya Ijo of Our Saviour’s Anglican
Church, Ikenne Remo, Ogun State, Chief (Dr) Mrs HID Awolowo, as a rare gift to humanity and a blessing to her generation.
Bishop Fape stated this on Monday in a short address at the laying of the foundation of a multimillion naira HID Anglican Church, Sagamu, a church whose construction is being financed by Chief (Mrs) Awolowo.
The diocesan mother had organised a launching for the construction of the church during the Synod of Remo Anglican last May and held at Ikenne. She made history as the first individual to solely sponsor the annual event.
Fape said the greatest gift any mortal could give to God was such as HID had given to provide an avenue for winning converts and populate the kingdom of God, adding that the project confirmed the donor’s belief that there was no other foundation except Christ.
“The most enduring legacy is what Mama has done. Generations unborn, if Christ tarries, will speak of her deeds. Initially, we wanted to build an events hall. But God said we should acknowledge Him first before every other thing and so we decided we would build a church. By the grace of God, this church will be dedicated in the next five months,” Fape said.
