Benson Idahosa University Honors Rev Chris Oyakhilome With Honorary Doctorate Degree


Just a few months after being honored with an
honorary Doctorate Degree by the Ambrose Alli
Univerity, Ekpoma, the prestigious Benson Idahosa
University is today honoring popular Christ
Embassy Pastor, Rev. Chris Oyakhilome with a
honorary Doctorate degree in Divinity in a special convocation ceremony.

The ceremony which is taking place at the
University right now, is well attended by many
dignitaries including the Governor of Edo State,
represented by the honorable commissioner of
Education; Deputy Governor of Delta State; Former
Governors of Edo and Anambra states; and highly esteemed Royal fathers.

In a very moving speech delivered to the
distinguished audience by the Archbishop of the
Church of God Mission, Founder and Chancellor of
the University Rev Mrs Margaret Idahosa who flew
in from the U.S this morning for the occasion,
shared her reason for honoring Rev. Oyakhilome saying: “I have no hesitation to honor a man who
sticks out his neck in the midst of controversy and
opposition to preach the truth… I have longed to
see this day come to pass and I have occasion to
be more excited than you all to have this
opportunity to finally tell the world how proud I am of this my son. I and the entire Benson Idahosa
University and the Church of God Mission are
proud of you”

The late Bishop Benson Idahosa was said to be
Rev. Oyakhilome’s role model. He worked with the
late Bishop in the Church of God Mission during his
years as a Student at Edo College and then went on
to Ambrose Alii University from where he launched
the Believer’s LoveWorld ministry.
