Senior pastor of Kingsway International Christian Centre Matthew Ashimolowo on Tuesday paid a courtesy visit to Punch Place, headquarters of Punch Nigeria Limited at Magboro, Ogun State.

The visits comes weeks before he holds a six-day crusade in the Ikorodu area of Lagos through his Christ Compassion to the Rural World Foundation.

He said the church, during the crusade scheduled to hold from November 6 to 11, would offer free surgeries to some 200 to 300 patients, while drugs worth N70 million would be dispensed.

The clergyman said his church would also distribute relief materials to residents during the mega crusade.

According to Ashimolowo, the crusade would be in five parts. The first part is the pre-surgical screening which began on Monday, October 16.

The second part is surgeries for about 200 to 300 persons.

The third part, he said, would involve the distribution of relief materials to people.

Ashimolowo said the foundation would be distributing 75,000 clothes. Fifteen thousand of such clothes would be new ‘ankara’ for women.

He added that “the fourth thing is a specialised pastors’ seminar on Thursday and Friday so that we empower the pastors there and challenge them to rise and become the best they can be to serve their community and we will have over 2,000 pastors.”

For the fifth part on Saturday, November 11, the 71-year-old said, “From 6 am to 6 pm, we will be lining up 100 doctors, 100 pharmacists, laboratory technologists, opticians, optometrists and other doctors. They are bringing in medicines worth over N70m. Also, 5,000 glasses will be given, out of which 3,000 are reading glasses and 2,000 are frames.”
