Dr. Daniel Olukoya, the General Overseer of the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries (MFM), on Saturday said that the MFM was the legitimate owner of the popular Prayer City located at Magboro, Ogun.
Olukoya, the founder of MFM worldwide, disclosed this at the December edition of the monthly programme of the “Power Must Change Hands” held at the prayer city.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that this month’s event was tagged: ”Receiving The Anointing of Fire” and was attended by people from the country and beyond.
Olukoya said the clarification was a sequel to an internet publication that MFM was not the owner of the Prayer City.
“MFM is the rightful and legitimate owner of its prayer city located along the Lagos/Ibadan Expressway, Magboro, Ogun. MFM bought the land twice: first from the land owners and also from the Ogun State Property and Investment Company (OPIC). MFM has been using this land for the past 18 years and has obtained the Certificate of Occupancy (C of O) from the Ogun State Government,” he said.
He urged the MFM worshipping community both in Nigeria and abroad not to entertain any fears regarding the internet rumour making the rounds regarding the genuine ownership of the land.
He said all the properties there-the Prayer City and the Mountain Top University (MTU) belong to MFM. The pastor, however, urged those peddling such rumours to desist from it; warning, “It is dangerous to fight the MFM or its members”.
During the anointing service, Olukoya prayed for peace in Nigeria, Lagos and Ogun States respectively. He also led the worshippers to pray on anointing oil as part of activities marking the last “Power Must Change Hands” programme for 2016.
