The pastor was also the mastermind behind a feeding program that fed over 20,000 people across Osun West senatorial district in December 2023.

Speaking about his decision to always come to the aid of Muslims and showcase love to them, he shared an insight into his childhood life.

According to him, his reason for spending on mosques despite being a pastor, was because the mosque was a crucial part of his childhood, where he played and ate with Muslim children without any discrimination.

The pastor said that the sweet memory has motivated him to give back as much as possible to the community that raised him.
