Following the disastrous mudslide that claimed lots of life in Sierra Leone on Monday, the founder of Nigeria’s renown Pentecostal church, Living faith church (better known as Winners Chapel) Bishop David Oyedepo, on Friday had paid President Ernest Bai Koroma of Sierra Leone a condolence visit and supported victimized families with food items alongside relief materials.
According to the information within our reach, Bishop Oyedepo made a trip to Sierra Leone to condole with the president following the Monday mudslide, praying for the nation that such disaster will never repeat itself again.
As a way of supporting families who were victims of the disaster, Bishop Oyedepo made the pledge of donating food items and relief materials to support victimized families.
In clear terms, Oyedepo made a pledge of 250 bags of rice, 250 litres of vegetable oil, 250 bags of onions, 250 blankets, clothing, washing soap among other relief materials for victimized families.
Appreciating Oyedpo for his kind gesture, President Koroma recounts the loss the nation suffered while the mudslide occurred on Monday. He narrated that a particular church was observing vigil when the unprecedented tragedy occurred, and consequently claimed hundreds of lives. He also bemoaned the story of six innocent children who went studying in the home of one of their brightest colleagues and the young man who was due to get married today, saying that they all had their plans for the next day but were swept away from their sleep onto untimely deaths.
If you will recall, the same nation suffered a great loses during the Ebola epidemic which spread greatly across the West African coast. Even though faced with another challenging situation, almost like that of the Ebola outbreak, President Koroma still was optimistic, expressing the hope that there is light at the end of the tunnel.
