President, Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, and founder of Word of Life Bible Church, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, has joined the league of Nigerian Preachers that own private jets.
Oritsejafor’s jets, marked N431CB,was delivered to him,yesterday, at the celebration of his 40th year of being on the pulpit, which held at the Word of God Bible Church in Warri, Delta State.
Although,the aircraft was not flown to the venue of the occasion, the announcement of the USA manufactured 10-seater Bombadier/ Challenger 601 aircraft, at the occasion by one of the pastors,was greeted with loud ovation and applause.
The Challenger 601 is a heavy jet that sits up to 10 passengers and has a range of 3,900 nautical miles. It has a full enclosed lavatory and a flight attendant for additional comfort. The luxurious and spacious cabin of the Challenger 601 is perfect to conduct meetings or simply relax.
The jubilant congregation spent over 15 minutes congratulating one another even as the recipient did not make any comment on the jet said to have been purchased for him by the church.
