Apostle Chibuzor Chinyere

The 46 years old Apostle Chibuzor Chinyere, who is a former Jehovah Witness, is based in Port Harcourt, River State.
Bishop Tom Sampson
Bishop Tom Sampson is the Bishop of Christ Royal Family International Church. Therefore, he sees absolutely no reason why he should not live the life of royalty. For instance, he made news at a point for his acquisition of a stretch Hummer SUV.
On Sunday 27th March 2016, and in living up to the royal status, he received a gift of a car befitting of royalty. It was a custom-built 2014 Rolls-Royce. The customized car was a gift from some members of his congregation. It was in celebration of his 50th birthday in December 2015.
According to his 50th birthday organizing committee that handed him the car gift, the impact of Bishop Tom Samson in their lives and his contribution to the body of Christ necessitated the gift. So there is aptly nothing more befitting to celebrate him at 50 than an automobile of a royal ensemble to compliment his status as a joint heir in the Kingdom.
