BENIN CITY— A multi-billion naira cable satellite Television station, owned by the General Overseer of the Omega Fire Ministries, Apostle Johnson Suleman, was commissioned in Benin City, yesterday.
The event which was attended by top politicians including Governor Rotimi Amaechi, who was represented by the Rivers State Commissioner for Health, Samson Parker, captains of industry, Nollywood actors and actresses, also witnessed the end of the nine-year-old feud between the former President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Ejike Asiegbu and his colleague, Kanayo O.Kanayo.
However, in his address during the commissioning, Apostle Suleman said that the idea of setting up the station was based on the mandate he had from God to produce people of fire and enviable destinies.
He said: “We have a mandate to wipe out tears from people all over the world, through the revelation of the Word, manifestation of God’s power and reality of the Holy Spirit.”
Governor Amaechi who was represented at the occasion, commended the wisdom behind the setting up of the TV station by the church.
