Pastor Matthew Ashimolowo’s name surely rings a bell. The afro-wearing pastor has taken his kind gesture to his home town, Ode-Omu in Osun State where he recently opened the Kings University, situated along Ode Omu-Gbongan Road, joining the league of pastors whose churches own universities. This may be exciting after all, but the main gist for now is the controversy trailing the newly founded university.
According to our sources, the university authority usually asks for monetary grant before employment into the services of the school and this does not go down well with applicants who have expressed their interest in working with the institution. For now, the school has only been able to appoint few staffers but awaiting the resumption of students into campus. However, the kinsmen of Ashimolowo have kicked against the school’s style saying that the ebullient pastor should have considered their children for employment before others. We also gathered that the Olu of Ode-Omu is also not happy about this development. But, one other gist about this spirit-filled pastor is that his name is not actually Ashimolowo. My tatafo informed me that due to his poor background, he was surprised that he could ever make it in life, hence the name “Ase Mo le Lowo” (Meaning, “so I can be rich”) which was later transformed to Ashimolowo. Anyway, Pastor over to you to debunk this claim.
