Following the celebration of the 30th anniversary/international convention of the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries, the General Overseer, Daniel Olukoya on Sunday awarded over 300 first class graduates alongside three NYSC presidential awardees.

According to him, this was in line with the 70-point agenda for the youths across all the nations in the world.

"As part of the 70-point agenda for the youths, I made a statement in 2010 that, any member of the MFM that perform excellently well in school would be giving an official car among other cash prizes.

"At the inception, 19 students benefited from the initiative while in 2015, it went up to 115 beneficiaries. I couldn't withstand the burden so, I had to call for more sponsors to partner with me due to the rise of the first class graduates who have been so excellence freak in their various disciplines over the years.

"I am glad to tell you that over 250 students have so far benefited from this initiative since its inception.

"Today, the number has drastically increased to over 300 first class graduates across various tertiary institutions in the world."

He added: "A book titled 'The University Generals' will be launched at later date where you would be reading about the success stories of all the beneficiaries with a view of learning from their experiences during their study years in school."

           One of the beneficiaries receiving award from Governors Babajide Sanwo-Olu and                                 Udom Emmanuel of Lagos and Akwa-Ibom states respectively.

"It's my great pleasure to be part of this honour. I also like to use this opportunity to advise my fellow colleagues to always strive for greatness and excellence. I say a big thank you daddy GO."
