Group hails cleric for developing Arigidi-Akoko
 February 8, 2020
The people of Arigidi-Akoko, a community in the Akoko North West Local Government Area of Ondo State, the hometown of Prophet T.B. Joshua, the presiding Pastor of The Synagogue Church of All Nations, have commended the internationally-acclaimed cleric over his landmark contributions to the socio–economic life of the community.
Unlike a prophet that is not honoured in his own town, the entire community are expressing deep appreciation for what the man of God is doing in their midst to touch lives by uplifting various people either directly or indirectly through the award of scholarships and empowerment schemes aside from many people-oriented projects being sited in the community to provide job opportunities for the people.
Some of the projects include a massive church auditorium that could sit over 10,000 worshippers, a huge housing estate, schools, health facilities, hotels, among others.
The people of the community, while paying glowing tributes to the globally-recognized prophet, acknowledged that the cleric had singularly embarked on the series of gigantic projects to bring succour to their community and enhance the socio-economic value of the town where other prominent people who are indigenes like him had failed to make their contributions to the economic development of the community.
The situation led to a gathering in Lagos of representatives of Triangular Club, a conglomerate of 53 social clubs in Arigidi-Akoko, where the club President, Prince Olatunde Olanipekun, acknowledged the contributions socially and economically Prophet Joshua had made to engender development of the town and how he had become a rallying point in his approach to matters affecting the growth and peace of the community.
Prince Olanipekun stated that Prophet Joshua was the only person at the moment who could rally the people to bring a lasting solution to the lingering problem affecting the growth of the town, as he was the only one the entire community could listen to due to the great influence he enjoys amongst the people.
The president explained that such developmental projects had greatly endeared Prophet Joshua to the entire people of the town and the Ondo State government to the extent that both the people and the government would listen to his intervention in finding possible lasting solutions to lingering crises rocking the town.
