UNESCO former Chief to deliver WATS anniversary lecture

A former Ambassador/Permanent Delegate of Nigeria to UNESCO and President of the 32nd Session of the General Conference of UNESCO, Prof. Michael Omolewa, is expected to deliver the 30th anniversary lecture of West Africa Theological Seminary, lpaja, Lagos.
A recipient of national award, Prof. Omolewa is a member of the Governing Council of the International African Institute in the United Kingdom and Chairman of Committee of Deans of Faculties of Education of Nigerian Universities.
He is also Emeritus Professor of the University of Ibadan.
Operating with the theme: “Riding the Storm to Glory,” the one week-long celebration will kicks off on September 9 and end on September, 2019 and will be rounded off with the 29th Convocation of the Seminary.
The seminary, which is a non-denominational theological training institution in Nigeria, has produced notable pastors and church leaders across the country and has been affiliated to the University of Nigeria, Nsukka since 1992.
According to its Provost, Pastor Oluwafemi Martins, this year’s anniversary is a unique one because “apart from giving out Awards of Excellence to deserving members of the public here in Nigeria and abroad, a three-floor building donated by the founder of Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries, Dr. Daniel K. Olukoya, will be dedicated and formally handed over to the Seminary.”
Martins added: “As part of our social responsibilities to our community, WATS has dedicated a day in the week-long programmes for a comprehensive medical outreach where medical personnel of the WATS Hospital will attend to the public on a wide range of medical challenges.”
The Anniversary lecture comes up on September 14, 2019.
