HOLY CONVOCATION [ABUJA ’07] – REQUEST FOR OFFERING FOR SUBSIDY.
The peace of the Lord rule and garrison your heart in Jesus name.
I write with respect to the Holy Convocation – The 2007 National Conference, holding at Abuja, the Federal Capital of Nigeria.
This Holy Convocation is peculiar in many respects, holding in an election year, and also with virtually all brethren in the kingdom message gathering together after many years of separation.
The venue originally scheduled for the conference, the NATIONAL CENTRE FOR WOMEN DEVELOPMENT, may not accommodate brethren. Hence, the most spacious hall in Abuja, the INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE CENTRE, (which can accommodate 3,000 persons) has been booked and approved for use during the conference. This has astronomically increased the conference budget.
Also, we expect many brethren from outside the country at this year’s conference, especially from the fields of Missions – Togo, Ghana, Cote D’ivore, Sierra Leone, etc.
The request of subsidy is not to take care of personal conference costs (which shall be borne by individuals) but to take care of such expenses that are outside individuals’ personal conference costs. i.e.
- Cost of using Women Centre Hall facilities for 2 days -N350,000.00
- Costs of using International Conference Centre for 3 days of conference -N1,650,000.00
- Cost of hiring good public address and Recording /Duplicating facilities -N200,000.00
- Cost ofbringing and accommodating foreign guests
(including those from mission fields) -N500,000.00
- Cost of subsidizing buses hire -N250,000.00
- Miscellaneous costs for conference -N250,000.00
TOTAL SUM OF SUBSIDY REQUIRED = -N3,200,000.00
From the above breakdown, the request for subsidy for a hitch – free conference comes to N3,200,000. (Three Million, two hundred thousand Naira only).
This letter is being sent to few brethren in the house who we believe will understand the picture of the situation at hand and also the overall purpose of the convention.
