My own first commissioning as a Commissioner was a school built by RCCG church in Lagos Island where they also gave school bags and a lot of school equipment to children. Again, I say thank you.’’

Adefisayo also urged the school authority to maintain the building and make sure the facilities are always in good condition.

Oyitso, who came with many other ministers involved in Christian Social Responsibility programmes of the church, stated that Christian Social Responsibility provides a conscious avenue for Christians to make a visible impact in various key areas that can impact society. “Where others see societal challenges as unscalable barriers all around the world, we see opportunities to take decisive effort to create solutions as we work with people, communities, leaders, and governments worldwide” he explained.
