OPM church commissions tuition-free schools, offers free meal, textbook to pupils


OPM2Omega Power Ministries (OPM) upped its novel humanitarian activities last week with the commissioning of a free ICT-based free nursery and primary school in Port-Harcourt.

The school situated at the church’s headquarters on Olusegun Obasanjo airport road, Port-Harcourt boasts of state-of-the-art facilities such as well-equipped scientific laboratories, basket ball court, internet-ready computers and a department of phonetics.

The commissioning also coincided with the graduation of 20 pupils from the school.

General overseer of OPM, Apostle (Dr.) Chibuzor Chinyere, said the school was conceived to offer free, qualitative education to children from the slums.

Chinyere recalled how his parents could not afford his educational needs owing to abject poverty, pointing out there are many of such children on the streets as against classrooms today.

He stated that the modern facilities in the school are to expose pupils from poor background to contemporary knowledge so that they will not keep lagging behind.

Aside the free tuition in the school, he announced that pupils will also be offered daily lunch packs to enhance learning.

He assured that only pupils from poor homes drawn from across religious and ethnic groups will attend the school.

The cleric also promised that free text books, school bags and other writing materials will be provided to the pupils entirely free of charge.

He appealed to other churches and religious organisations to consider the plight of the less-privileged in their activities.

Parents at the graduation praised the church for the gesture.

Mrs. Chinasa Alozie said she could not imagine her child would ever learn in such a conducive environment.

Madam Favour Chukwudi thanked Chinyere and the church for taking her child through such a wonderful learning experience.
