It was a great day in the city of Lagos, as one of the nation’s finest prophets and seers was honoured by United Nations.
Primate Babatunde Ayodele’s hospitality, generosity and immense contribution to world peace has reached the globe as the United Nations decided to honour him with the Eminent Ambassador of Peace Award which was given to him by Ambassador Chinedu Anthony, the same man that honoured T. D. Jakes with the same award in Nairobi Kenya this year.
Primate Ayodele’s humanitarian exploit is impeccable he has made indelible mark in the lives of a lot of indigents and Primate Ayodele has been able to empower about ten thousand youths, youths that are jobless, youths that are into crime, youths that are drug addicts, because a nation where youths are not engaged, crime is inevitable, high rate of crime in a country will ultimately lead to insecurity, restiveness and lack of peace.
He has empowered 15 thousand widows, giving them a house where they pay just one thousand naira in a year, apart from the general welfare he provides for the widow, he gives those who wants to fly among them, loans without any interest, he provides free medical services for them. He has trained over four thousand orphans to university level.
He said, “I wish the government will do more of this, peace can only be attained in a nation, where people are happy, where people have something doing for means of livelihood; unrest, hunger, suffering and hardship bring about chaos and insecurity, the government should help so that we can make Nigeria an enviable nation.”
