Trinity House To Hold 2016 Honour Nigeria Awards To Commemorate Nigeria’s 56th Independence



As part of its activities to commemorate Nigeria’s independence anniversary celebrations, Trinity House will be holding the sixth in the series of its annual Honour Nigeria Awards ceremony on Sunday October 2, 2016 at the church’s main auditorium, Zion Centre, situated on Trinity Avenue, through Water Corporation Road, off Ligali Ayorinde Street, Victoria Island, Lagos. The event will hold by 9.30 am.

The Honour Nigeria Awards ceremony inaugurated in 2011 is a day set aside to honour outstanding Nigerians of high integrity who have exemplified themselves in different areas of life. The objective of the awards ceremony is to recognise those who have contributed to Nigeria’s national development and acknowledge them as role models for present and future generations. The awards are in the areas of Leadership, Professionalism, Industry, Philanthropy, Female Leadership and Role Model and the Africa Prize.

Honourees in past years have included Chief Olu Akinkugbe, Chief Arthur Mbanefo, Chief (Mrs) Leila Fowler, Late Pastor Joshua Adah, Chief Emeka Anyaoku, Chief Mrs Opral Benson, Chief Chris Ogunbanjo, Mr. Akintola Williams, late Chief Mrs HID Awolowo, Gen T.Y. Danjuma, Pa Laban Namme, Prof Grace Alele Williams, Mr. Otto Orondaam, Dr. Christopher Kolade, Chief Mrs Priscilla Kuye, Otunba Subomi Balogun and late Dr. Ameyo Stella Adadedov amongst others.

The event is the church’s own way of contributing to the development of the Nigerian nation. According to the Senior Pastor of the church, Ituah Ighodalo, “Nigeria has as her citizens, some of the most outstanding people that the world has ever seen. We must begin to celebrate all these people and begin to celebrate the good about Nigeria and as we begin to speak great things about this country; we must raise up bright and new role models. As we honour Nigeria and outstanding Nigerians, thanking God in spite of all that has happened, Nigeria will begin to be outstanding. Nigeria is still looked upon as the giant of Africa and one with the greatest potentials on the continent; in spite of everything, Nigeria is still a dominant force along the West Coast, has the largest economy in Africa and amongst the top 20 in the world. Nigerians must join hands together, and work hard to ensure that in the next 10, 30 and 50 years, Nigeria becomes truly outstanding and makes its mark amongst the committee of nations. We must begin to look right now for the right kind of leadership; we must begin to look into the right kind of processes that will take us to where we are going; we must begin to make use of our natural resources and use them optimally; we must begin to encourage again the spirit of labour, hard work, and honesty. We must begin to look at the things we can do to take Nigeria forward and say no more to all the elements of backwardness that has held this nation back. We must begin to honour our own, say good things about Nigeria and as we do that, God in His infinite wisdom and mercy will begin to move the right people into the right places. That is why we are honouring Nigeria.”

Nominations have opened for this year’s awards in the following categories: Professionalism Award Nomination which is to recognise an outstanding Nigerian who has excelled in their chosen profession e.g. Law, Accountancy, Engineering, Medicine, Journalism etc. Industry Award Nomination to recognise an outstanding Nigerian who has excelled in building an enterprise, creating employment for Nigerians while adding value to the Nigerian economy.

Trinity House Celebrates Sixth Anniversary…To Hold Youth Entrepreneurship Seminar


Trinity House will be celebrating its sixth anniversary on Sunday July 24, 2016 at the church’s main auditorium, Zion Centre, situated on Trinity Avenue, through Water Corporation Road, off Ligali Ayorinde Street, Victoria Island, Lagos. The event will hold by 9.00 am.

Inaugurated on Sunday July 18, 2010 at the Civic Centre in Victoria Island, Lagos in a ceremony witnessed by church leaders and large cross section of the Nigerian society, the church is a non-denominational, free flow Christian worship centre powered by leaders, professionals and leaders to be with the vision to build a people of change, influence and impact.

The church, which obtains its motto from the book of Acts chapter 10, verse 38, “Everywhere he went he was doing good,” intends to be a voice to leadership across all spheres of society and challenge leaders to do the right things in the right way that will bring about a positive change. Speaking at a media conference held on Monday July 18 to herald in the series of events for the anniversary, the Senior Pastor of the church, Pastor Ituah Ighodalo said, "We intend to ‘take the church out of church’ to meet the people and their needs."



The sixth anniversary celebrations began on Saturday July 16 with a six-hour praise program organised by the women’s group of the church, The Timeless Woman. It featured artistes such as Tope Alabi, Efe Nathan, Big Bolaji, Onos, The Trinity Voices amongst others. This will be followed by an anniversary praise night on Wednesday July 20 by 6pm. On Thursday July 21, the church will be hosting youths to an entrepreneurship summit. The event, tagged ‘Today’s Youths, Tomorrow’s Leaders’, is being organised by the church’s leadership training school, the Trinity Leadership School (TLS). Pastor Bayo Rotimi, the minister in charge of the TLS said this is another of the church’s own way of contributing to the development of the Nigerian nation through the capacity development of her youths. The event will feature speakers such as Leke Alder, Tara Fela-Durotoye, Peter Bamkole, Kate Henshaw, Fisayo Okunsayo and Funke Soyibo.




The Trinity Leadership School is one of several initiatives of the church set up to achieve its vision of bringing the impact of Christianity beyond Christians and the immediate Church into the larger society. With its 14 NGOs and various welfare programs, Trinity House is a church that goes beyond the walls of church to reach society to change lives and transform nations. Pastor Ighodalo noted that the Church must become actively involved in nation building, governance and politics. “Nigerian youths need to be mentored to start taking up their rightful leadership positions. The military incursion into Nigeria robbed us of that natural process of succession but now sixteen years after democracy has taken roots, it is time to start thinking of the future and the government cannot do that. Individuals, organisations, churches must step into that role”. He commended the Buhari administration for its anti-corruption drive noting that the rot and decay in the system is quite deep and will take time to heal. He however also enjoined the government to come up with a clearer vision of where the Nigerian nation is headed both economically and politically.

AgriHub Plans to Take Made-in-Nigeria Food Global

In a bid to combat the recent economic turmoil and increasing dollar crunch, AgriHub has taken it upon itself to organize a workshop aimed at encouraging production of local food products that would easily replace the international brands on the shelves of retail stores and supermarkets in Nigeria.

The workshop is geared towards sensitizing the populace in patronizing “Made in Nigeria” products since it will be impossible to compel consumers to purchase substandard products in the name of patriotism. The workshop will also comprehensively educate Nigerian producers on how to improve Made-in-Nigeria products while ensuring they are competitive in terms of packaging, branding and quality.

While speaking on the AgriHub workshop, the facilitator, Aderinoye Aderonke, bore her mind on the challenges besetting entrepreneurs in the country: “The challenge with most entrepreneurs is they believe the capital outlay required in packaging their products to international standards is high. Another belief that seem to possess prominence is that one needs to travel and meet with foreigners to come up with designs and packaging solutions that would meet international standards. Meanwhile, a lot of these solutions can be sourced locally and are affordable.

The AgriHub workshop for May 2016, with the theme “Simple steps to take Made in Nigeria food” is a multisector workshop that will provide actionable solutions to food processing, packaging, marketing and distribution.  It will present solutions that are locally available and simple tips on how to market and reach a wide audience without breaking the bank.

It is also aimed at providing a learning and networking avenue for small and medium agribusiness owners and stakeholders to determine challenges and help improve current systems and procedures in doing business.

Experts in the field of branding, processing, packaging and marketing with experience spanning FMCGs and multinational organizations will facilitate sessions and provide insights on improved technologies and local available solutions affordable to small and medium agro processors to make their products compete globally. As part of the take-home benefits of the workshop, participants will be able to: address challenges in the food processing, identify affordable world class packaging solutions, identify new and traditional food marketing channels; determine business opportunities to export, determine business opportunities to import, understand the increasing shift from consumption of unpackaged, unbranded food to stronger demand for packaged and processed food, get onsite support and discount on photography, packaging and marketing solutions for your business, learn basic social media and IT hacks that can be used in promoting one’s business to a wider audience.

The workshop, which takes place on the 11th of May, 2015 at Quad T events Centre, Gbagada opposite UPS by 9am, is open to individuals who seek financial freedom through agro-business as well as small and medium agro-processors seeking to learn how to make their products global competitive using locally available solutions.

IamMindful Official Launch



Africa's indigenous youth platform "IamMindful" co-founded by Eniola Toluwalase and Tola Odumosu, had its official launch and released its mobile app at a colourful ceremony that took place in Lagos recently. The mobile app is geared at ensuring the platform meets its aims and objectives.

IamMindful is sponsored by Mindful of Youths Initiative, a Non-Governmental Organization, birthed to highlight the need for parents, adults and society at large, to be mindful of the issues that affect young people; such as their upbringing, career, relationships with different segments of society and of course, their total and all-round wellbeing.

IamMindfuls' main goal is to raise (and have in its official database) over 10,000,000 (Ten Million) people all over Nigeria and beyond, signed up on the #IamMINDFUL platform, with the aim to champion their drive of being mindful of issues that affect their lives, including but not limited to;
1. the way they live
2. the consequences of the choices they make
3. the impact of the friendships they form
4. The general outlook at life and how they respond to it.

The connecting link or heartbeat that neatly ties this together as an unbreakable anchor line, is for young people to progress beyond themselves and be mindful of issues that affect others, the society they live in (with footprints locally and globally) and to respond positively to same.

At its official launch party held at the Springboard Hall, Trinity Avenue, Ligali Ayorinde, Victoria Island, students and high profiled individuals were in attendance. Some of the guests present were renowned Nigerian actress Mrs Taiwo Ajai Lycett, Mr Evans Akere (CEO Vanskere), Mr Lanre Oyegbola (Chief Imagination Officer, Boomerang Africa), Mr Praise Fowowe (Relationship Coach), Mrs Omotayo Omotosho, Toby Grey, Mrs Yemisi Mobolurin and many more.

The campaign unveiled the brand ambassadors who will carry the message of the project to their fans and followers. These include the likes of Japheth Omojuwa, Mrs Taiwo Ajai Lycett, Teju BabyFace, Uti Nwachukwu, Segun Dangote, Toby Grey, Xtreme, Timix and Gospel Force.

The chairman and chief host of the initiative, Pastor Ituah Ighodalo spoke on mentorship as an effective tool for youths.

The Mindful Mobile app is available on Google play store and everyone is encouraged to download, upload their pictures and share what they are mindful of.
