Over the years, the General Overseer of Omega Power Ministry, OPM, based in Port Harcourt and with branches globally, Apostle Chibuzor Gift Chinyere, has taken steps to realise his dream of establishing a Free University in Nigeria. This indication was given on his Facebook post on Wednesday.
“I just finished meeting with a professor and I have instructed the OPM international metron that from January 2023, No more new intakes for OPM overseas scholarship because of the over growing dollar rates. So all those we just paid there school fees last week for Cyprus that will be traveling this month of August and those for Germany that will be traveling September are the last new intakes for overseas scholarship.
“While others that are already in different universities around the world, we shall continue to pay your school fees and accommodations only till you graduate. You have to look for small jobs for your feeding and cloths.
“I have already given the professor some funds to travel to Abuja, Nigeria for the registration and approval of the first free university in Nigeria, to be called OPM free university.
“It will be like our 20 free schools 2 free world class free hospitals, one multi – skill acquisition center, 18 free estates etc……
“This free university shall be ran 100 percent free of charge and it will be open to both Muslims and Christians from other churches.
Serious OPM members, not visiting members shall have 90 percent slot, while 10 percent shall be shared for Muslims and other denominations.
“The professor has also promised to bring in some foreign professors that will train some of our Nigerian lecturers free of charge on how to teach with technology, not black boards.
“Am so excited for this my dream to come true: Just like the world class well equipped specialist hospital which started 8 years ago.
“Every week, through head of welfare, Mrs Morine, we spend millions on hospital bills. Then, one day, I woke up and said: enough is enough. We must build our own hospital and God made it possible.
“I will also speak to those American universities that gave me honorable doctorate degree if they can assist the OPM Free University, even if it means paying them monthly so that the OPM Free University can be of high standard”, Apostle Chibuzor Gift Chinyere further explained.
