Benin, May 12, 2023 – Chris Oyakhilome, the President of Love World Ministry (Christ Embassy), has acquired the old Bendel Flour Mills in Ewu, Edo State.

He has started investing lots of resources into  rehabilitating the project, now called Prime Feed and Flour Mills.

Philip Shaibu, the Deputy Governor of the state, paid a working visit to the mill to see the extent of the massive investment on Thursday.

He expressed delight at the massive investment and commended Oyakhilome for his initative.

Shaibu, in a post on his official Facebook page on Friday said: “On Thursday, I paid a working visit to inspect the newly revamped Prime Feed and Flour Mill, Ewu in Esan Central Local Government Area of our State.

“I commended the new owner and investor of the mill, Rev. Chris Oyakhilome, President, of Love World Ministry (Christ Embassy) while I noted that the acquisition and resuscitation of the former state-owned Bendel Feed and Flour Mill have brought agricultural expansion and development to Esan people and Edo State in general.

“I went round the facilities and I saw a lot of expansion that has taken place. Some obsolete machines have been refabricated and I’m very impressed. There are also new plants waiting for installation. These machines are capable of producing 25 tonnes per hour. This goes to show that when you inject new equipment into facilities like this, you inject new life and the multiplier effect is always huge.

“The products are environmentally friendly.

“While I encourage farmers in the area to take full advantage of these products to boost their agricultural production, I reiterated our stand as a Government – we will continue to create an enabling environment for private investments and partnerships. (GBN)
