It was a historic celebration for Global Plus Publishing, one of the largest printing presses in Nigeria and the official printers of the No.1 best-selling daily devotional, Rhapsody of Realities, as it unveils a newly acquired Ecoline Manugraph Web Printing Machine on Friday 14th of June 2024, at its head office in Oregun, Ikeja, Lagos State.

At a well attended media parley at the corporate headquarters of the company in Oregun, Lagos, Chairman of GPP, esteemed Pastor Yemisi Kudehinbi, reiterated that the newly acquired state-of-the-art 4 colour web machine boasts advanced features, including variable numbering and barcode capabilities.

“These features enable us to expand our printing services beyond high-quality book printing to include specialized security printing applications, such as examination materials, ballot papers, and other sensitive documents that require precise and secure printing solutions.”

According to her, GPP’s partnership with the Bank of Industry (BOI) has been instrumental in achieving this significant milestone.

“I would like to express my deep appreciation to the President of the Loveworld Nation, Reverend Dr. Chris Oyakhilome, DSC, DSC DD. For one thing,  of course, he is the author of Rhapsody of Realities. But I remember about 18 years ago, when we actually considered printing Rhapsody of Realities outside Nigeria, because we’re having very serious problems and challenges printing here. Sometimes they wouldn’t meet up with the timing.
