Background On Omega Fire Ministries And Free Food Project
Omega Fire Ministries is a popular church with branches in Nigeria and other countries. The owner of the church is Apostle Joshua Suleman, who is also the CEO of Celebration Tv. The pastor announced the free feeding and officially launched the restaurant (Joliz Kitchen) in Auchi, Benin City on Saturday, March 19.
To confirm the validity of this post, Roundcheck spoke with a pastor named Joseph Ehis Aigbokhan of Omega Fire Ministries, Benin city branch. He confirmed that the free feeding had commenced while giving the financial breakdown of the project.
“It is everyday. The target is to feed 1000 people daily, using three cows weekly. The total budget on a weekly basis is 6 million naira and 24 million naira monthly. It was opened last Saturday and it’s running every day. Total employees are 60 people at the moment and they are on attractive salaries,” the pastor disclosed.
Verdict and Conclusion
Roundcheck can verify that Apostle Johnson Suleman’s free feeding has kickstarted. Therefore, the claim that the Apostle Johnson Selman’s free food restaurant for the less privileged was opened is TRUE.
