The senior Pastor of the Business Church, Ado-Ekiti, Rev. Tope Popoola, has said the landmark achievements of Governor Aregbesola motivated his ministry in donating hospital bedding to the state public hospitals.
The clergy said the inspiration to make the donation was driven by passion to contribute the widow’s mite of the church to performing administration of Aregbesola.
Rev. Popoola made the donation of 300 pillows to state-owned hospitals under the aegis of his NGO, Give Pillow Campaign.
“Sick people need comfort as the quality of sleep they have enhance their quick recovery.
“The decision to do this is for us to identify with the good work going on in the state,” Rev. Popoola said.
Receiving the materials, the state Commissioner for Health, Dr. Temitope Ilori, commended the cleric for supporting the good work of government and contributing to the course of humanity.
Ilori said every single item donated will be judiciously utilised by the hospitals’ management.
She noted that such philanthropic gestures from men of God and faith-based organisations is encouraging as they give back to the communities.
“I appeal to agencies and organisations to come and partner with government.
“We also solicit prayers for peaceful conduct of election in the state and triumph of Governor Aregbesola at the poll.
“As government, we are not resting on our oars in making sure that we give our people qualitative healthcare services,” Dr. Ilori said.
