Pastor Joshua Iginla, the Senior Pastor of Champions Royal Assembly, Kubwa, Abuja has explained why he gave out 32 cars to Nollywood actors and actresses and why he does several other donations on his birthday yearly. Iginla said it is the way of giving back to the society, and he is aware that a man can only live in one house at once and drive just a car at once. But more importantly, he said he choose to bless Nollywood acts because most of them are poor, unlike their fans thinking, that they are super rich. Read below;
“So this is my own way of correcting the wrong impression,” Iginla said, adding that the fruits of Nollywood artistes are being reaped by pirates and challenged government to do some¬thing to arrest it:
“Nollywood actors and actresses are our ambassadors; they have projected the image of this country positively and so they deserve to be treated well.
“I have not seen some of the ben¬eficiaries before in my life or spoken to them. I’m seeing many of them for the first time today. I am seeing Jide Kosoko for the first time.
“It doesn’t matter to me if I trek home as I have given even the car that I personally drive. I can only drive one car and live in one house at a time. This understanding is what has taught me that when I die, others will inherit my assets. The beauty of life is not in its duration but in its donation.”
Iginla also gave out cash running into several millions of naira to the aged, widows, orphanages and also offered scholarship to orphans from nursery school to university level.
