President Goodluck Jonathan on Saturday
inaugurated the over N600 million Jubilee
Resort and Leadership Centre constructed
by the Christian Association of Nigerian
(CAN) in Abuja.
The Centre, which is within the premises of
the National Christian Centre, Abuja,
provides rooms, accommodation and halls
for conferences to the public at a fee.
Thanking God for giving him the privilege of
flagging off the construction and eventual
commissioning of the project, Jonathan
said that with unity of purpose, the body of
Christ can achieve greater things.
He said: “I urge Nigerians to imbibe the
spirit of unity and with it nothing can stop
us from reaching greater heights”.
He noted that one of the greatest assets
from a family to the nation is good
leadership.
“I believe this centre will be used to re-
orientate and re-focus us”, he said.
The president, however, warned that it will
not be worth the effort if the multi-million
Naira edifice cannot generate income to at
least cater for its maintenance.
Commending the prudence in the cost of
the building, Mr. Jonathan added that
building and its facilities would have cost
three times the cost expended if it was
executed by the government.
In his remarks earlier, CAN President,
Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, stated that the cost
of the building came down because some
engineers and other people rendered their
services free of charge.
Stressing that there are many five-star and
four-star hotels in Abuja, he said that none
of them could boast of a serene and godly
environment like the resort.
Also noting that the presence of God is
worth more than any other thing,
Oritsejafor said that the resort has become
a revenue earner for the CAN already.
Among those who received plaques for
their donations to the project included Jim
Ovia, Tony Elumelu, Akwa Ibom State
Governor, Godswill Akpabio and FCT
Minister, Bala Mohammed.
