Deeper Life Hospital is the Biggest in Africa



Deeper Life Bible Church unveils the biggest and best equipped hospital ever built in Africa.

It's a 10,000-bed capacity mega facility that can see to the needs of well over 35,000 indigent people in a single year.

It has Pediatrics, Psychiatry, General Out Patient, Burns, Oncology, and 15 other such departments, all stocked with the latest equipment necessary for such a world class facility.


The Surgery section boasts of state-of-the-art equipment that rivals Johns Hopkins hospital or any of the best health care centers  anywhere in the world. It would be available to all and sundry irrespective of their financial or social statuses.

The General Overseer, Pastor Kumuyi, says it would employ thousands of Nigerian doctors and attendant health workers graduating from the nation's many health institutions. He also hopes this would bring a halt to brain drain resulting from doctors jetting off abroad to find greener pastures, as well as billion-naira medical tourism the elite and politicians engage in monthly.

While cutting the tape to open the facility to the needy and poor in society, the vice president, Professor Osinbajo, commended the idea and quoted several verses from the Bible that showed how Jesus Christ healed the sick, fed the poor,  and generally looked after the welfare of thousands of poor people around him. He is excited that at least some people are thinking in the right direction and emulating their Master, the Messiah, instead of accumulating wealth that cannot travel with them to the great beyond.

On the part of the Lagos State governor, Mr Ambode, he showered praises on the millions of individuals who contributed to build the magnificent and well-equipped hospital, hoping others would emulate them rather than gift their money to jet-acquiring pastors littering the landscape, who in turn build mega businesses for themselves and family to enjoy, yet, they teach their followers to pray to God to solve their financial needs in return.

The Gbagada-based mega hospital is reported to be free to the public irrespective of tribe, religion, or political affiliations, and is going to be maintained by further contributions from faithfuls across the country and abroad.

Is this the turning point for 'Christiandom' in Nigeria?

Hallelujah, somebody!

Atiku Shares Deep Lessons From Black Panther

Over the weekend, I joined my children to watch the much talked about ‘Black Panther’. It was a good film, and I was happy they took me to see it. However, I came out of the movie theatre a little upset. When the first scenes came up, and I saw “Sambisa Forest” I was unhappy that the only reference the film makers could have for Nigeria was a negative one, but I was later encouraged by the thought of Africans solving African problems. That is a good thing, the kinds of things we used to do. For young people who may not remember, Nigerian civil servants and indeed most able citizens used to contribute money every month to support the struggle against Apartheid in South Africa. Nigeria was the single stabilizing force across West Africa. Helping to restore peace in Liberia and Sierra Leone are examples of the gigantic status we once had.

Selling Smart Phone Pictures: When My Phone Photography Exhibition Abuja Held Recently

The maiden edition of the 'my phone photography exhibition' held on the 23rd of March. The Shehu Musa Yar'adua Centre located in central area, Abuja, played host to this event. It was an atmosphere filled with calmness but you could also hear the joy and excitement in the voices of the over 100 people who came through the exhibition doors. 
The idea of the exhibition was born by one of the exhibitors (Omofuoma Agharite). Haven taken numerous pictures with her phone, she wanted to share those pictures with others and at the same time support a charity organisation. It was then that the idea was born and given to Ivy Events to nurture. After months of planning and execution, a group of exhibitors came together to showcase some of the amazing pictures that they had photographed with only their phones.
