The Obi of Owa kingdom, HRM Dr Emmanuel Efeizomor, has donated 50 plots of land to Living Faith Church international, aka Winners Chapel to enhance the preaching of the gospel in Owa-Oyibu.

The Obi of Owa made this known when the District Pastor, Living Faith Church Agbor paid him courtesy visit at his palace.

Obi Efeizomor, who is also the Chairman of Delta State Traditional Rulers Council, said the gesture was his way of appreciating God for his magnanimous acts towards Owa people and himself.

“Who knows whether the much-demanded source of learning and vision that is missing in our midst will actually be the one that will occupy the place provided. My application and supplication are that we should strive to make it a reality,” he added.

The District Pastor of Living Faith Church Agbor, Pastor Caleb Olubiyi, appreciated the monarch for the donation and promised that the land would be put into good use.
