The provost of WATS, Pastor Oluwafemi Martins who is being quoted in the statement noted this year’s anniversary is a unique one because “apart from giving out Awards of Excellence to deserving members of the public here in Nigeria and abroad, a three-floor building donated by the founder of Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries, Dr. Daniel K.
