“He came to me and said he wanted to sponsor the convention. He wanted to know how much it would cost. I told him I could not give a figure of that particular year but I could give him the figure of the previous year. So I gave him the figure. I thought he would shrink back. But he did not. He came later and brought the draft for the money. I was shocked”, Adeboye said.
