MFM’s Olukoya becomes Professor of Biotechnology


The General Overseer of the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries and Chancellor of Mountain Top University, Daniel Kolawole Olukoya, has been appointed as a Professor of Biotechnology.

According to a statement by the church, Olukoya got the new title after the assessment of his publications by some of the world’s best scholars in Biotechnology, and each of these scholars found the preacher worthy of being appointed as a Professor of Biotechnology.

The statement read in part, “It needs to be underscored that this appointment is indeed well-deserved by Prof. D. K. Olukoya, who is an epitome of all-round excellence.

“It needs to be mentioned that Prof. D. K. Olukoya was offered this position in the 1990s by many Universities. But, he chose to pursue his ministerial destiny, as directed by God.

“The authorities, members and friends of the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries, across the world, heartily congratulate our leader and mentor, Prof. Daniel Kolawole Olukoya, on his very eminently deserved appointment as Professor of Biotechnology.”
