Seyi Makinde, during his speech pledged to give the church utmost support in actualising the project, stressing that it is highly rewarding working for God and that he would give necessary support for the construction cathedral staled to be completed in two year’s time.
“Though I have promised not to build anything during my campaign promises, but as it is prophesied that the project will be completed in two year’s time by Daddy GO, I want to say that this is a call on me and that two year’s time I will be winding off this administration.
“My prayer is that, by that same time God should show me my next political step. So, I want to declare that we will do everything that is right to support the completion of this project,” he said.

“I have never regretted working for God since my many years in the ministry. I remember how God worked on my behalf during the approval of my PhD thesis. I was doing His work somewhere and my external supervisor instructed my project supervisor that I don’t need to come over in-person to defend it. This is how God works when you are doing His work wholeheartedly,” he said.
In his remarks, the visioner of the ministry, Bishop Wale Oke, expressed his delight on the gestures of the Pastor Adeboye and Governor Makinde, just as he noted that the project would be completed to the glory of God.
