On Monday Dec 4, 2011 during the inauguration of the new temple, the president of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Ayo Oritstejafor who dedicated the Temple’s second door, thanked God for the success of the project which was started by the pioneer Lagos, Western and Northern Areas (LAWNA) chairman, late Pastor Samuel Adegboyega, over 25 years ago.
