Dr. Samson Makinwa, Presiding Pastor of Kingdom Light Ministries (KLM), Lagos, and the Ooni of Ife, His Royal Majesty Oba Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, have signed a contract for the supply of equipment in Ile-Ife kingdom.
Explaining the purpose of the contract, Dr. Makinwa, who is also the Chief Executive Officer of Techo-Quip Limited, producers of different industrial equipment, said: “We are partnering with the Ooni to supply industrial equipment that would help people in processing and preserving different agricultural products and other raw materials into finished and semi-finished products in the kingdom. This will create employment, as well serve as a training ground for youths and the entire kingdom in self-employment and development.”
Makinwa explained that his firm would be supplying the equipment and train participants on vocations, while Ife Business School would train people on entrepreneurship and skill acquisition.
The Oba, who is the Chairman of Techo-Quip Ltd. before his ascension to the throne, according to Makinwa, is using his company’s products to establish industries in the kingdom through constant electricity supply, water and access roads to the industrial park location.
“This is not common of a royal father in the country. Oba Enitan Ogunwusi is not only a traditional ruler, but also a transformational, modest and philanthropist, whom God installed to help his people out of poverty and unemployment,” Makinwa said.
In his response, Ojaja II urged the people to eschew violence and remain law-abiding in order to partake of the good plans for Ife, which he is about to unfold.
