Ekiti APC slams Pastor Adeboye over support for Fayose, alleges bribery

Pastor E.A. Adeboye

The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Ekiti State has frowned at the comment made by the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Enoch Adeboye, yesterday commending the state governor, Ayodele Fayose, for what he called the governor’s courage and willingness to defend his people and the cause of the common man in the country.

The party said it was alarmed that a cleric of Mr. Adeboye’s standing could praise Governor Fayose for his persistent insults and abuses on President Muhammadu Buhari, noting that the cleric should be seen as speaking for himself and his comment must not be seen as representing that of the entire members of the RCCG.

In a release issued in Ado Ekiti on Sunday and signed by the state chairman of the party, Jide Awe, the party alleged that Mr. Fayose could have bribed Mr. Adeboye with huge amount of money to get such endorsement, which is not being circulated.

Pastor Adeboye had during his tour of the country to the state as part of the church’s annual ‘Let’s Go A Fishing” programme, said to Mr. Fayose: “We thank God for your courage, for your boldness, we thank God for your being willing to take risks so that your people can be protected. You have been a governor who knows when to say enough is enough in defence of his people. And I’m sure you know what I’m talking about and I am sure the world knows. I don’t want to say more than that but be assured that we are praying for you and you will succeed in Jesus name.”

Mr. Awe said Governor Fayose is a man that can bribe even angel of God to endorse the devil, warning Mr. Adeboye to avoid what will make the people of Ekiti rise against him.

The APC said that Mr. Adeboye even chose this period of the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ to embark on praise singing of a character like Mr. Fayose is to say the least, preposterous.

The party chairman called on members of the RCCG, especially families of the founder, Josiah Akindayomi, to call Mr. Adeboye to order before he destroys the church with his involvement in politics.

He said the pastor must not be allowed to destroy the legacies of the founder of the Redeemed Church and the entire members of the church.

Mr. Awe said Mr. Adeboye should be reminded that Vice President Yemi Osinbajo is a staunch member of the RCCG and what is expected of the cleric was support for members of his church, not praise singing of Mr. Fayose.

  • Spoken word

    Adeboye is a cash and carry pastor

    • Tunsj

      I couldn’t agree more.

      • Martins

        Get some sense, it’s almost the end of the year. You can’t continue like this next year please.

        • Say the truth

          You don’t need to caution this irritant. He is a jihadist and is happy to attack ‘unbelievers’.

  • Martins

    APC is a party full of charlatans. Pastor Adeboye was simply commending the Governor for his ability to pass a law that criminalizes unguarded and open cattle grazing in Ekiti state. This has ensured the state is free from dangerous fulani heardsmen. Just imagine the killings going on now in Southern Kaduna while El-Rufai and Buhari sit down and do nothing.

  • Essien Essien

    When people say in “Jesus Name”, it is left to be known which Jesus they are referring to. Of course, there are many Jesus but not “Christ”.

  • Henry Ohakwe

    APC is certainly desperately mad now. Did APC also bride Pastor Kumuyi to make hos comment for Buhari? The idea that men of God are not allowed to air their respected views when those views are perceived to be against APC is lunatic desperation.

    • ubong

      It goes to show how the north shrewdly blinded some of our southern brothers and sisters in the name of belonging to alphabet APC. You either support whatever suits they are doing to be seen as saints or you must be put on the cross of shrewd northern political strategies for them to be happy

    • nikoroorire

      People should be sincere and honest with themselves. Be bold enough to say the truth. A pastor who talking glowingly of a tout. Who killed Omojola in Ekiti some years back. There is God ooo!

  • justin

    Useless politicians, how do you open your rotten mouth to say bad of Pa Adeboye.Good you called him the general overseer of the church, and if you don’t know, he has spoken the minds of common men. Fayose is the governor to emulate and should be commended for his courage.

  • Engr. Raphael (AKA Deguvnor)

    In as much as I have strong reservation on the alleged comment made by Pastor Adeboye about Gov. Fayose, however I take exception to Ekiti APC’s bribery allegation against Pastor Adeboye.

    • ubong

      It goes to show how blinded and greedy and selfish and politcal naivety of some Ekiti APC so called members. What suffering Nigerians want is not APC or PDP but people with conscience for the poor and suffering masses. We are living witnesses to poor pensioners and worker’s owed pensions and salary across so called party . So if pastor I support Fayose and wish God guide him to develop Ekiti state.

      • Mufu Ola

        Is Fayose not owing pensioners & workers? And is he not a contributing factor of the nation’s mess with the loot he collected from Dasuki?Mr engineer.

        • ubong

          I think in your opinion, any Nigerian who is not supporting APC should not live. Thinking of this nature makes some greedy and nation looters to set up foundation to give out a petty bag of rice to suffering Nigerians and we hail them as heroes, instead of questioning them about our collective wealth stolen by them. Freedom of speech is part of democratic norms and we should not be so gullible to call any Nigerian that express his right of opinion as enemy of the state or taking bribe. You and I know we have lots of corrupt Nigerians in this ruling government and Nigerian want President Buhari to go all out against those in his government. It was what Nigerian voted him for although the north voted him to make sure political power return to North. Adeboye is human and has his right to express his opinion. He is not God although gullible Nigerians tend to worship their pastor’s than God

    • Omoba1

      Excuse me please – do you think those politicians are clueless about what goes on. They were in fact economical with the truth.

      During the 2015 elections, do you know the amount of money these god of men realized? Little wonder, the deeper life man is coming out of his quiet scene, wondering how come such amount of money passed me by.

      Please let’s stop living in denial

    • Maria

      The bribe is in form of offering and tithes…

      • Omoba1

        Please let him know. We are quick to cast aspersions to supporters of ill politicians, but want to pretend that the god of men are saints. Same crime, different clothes. A typical Nigerian issue – to ignore the crimes of their loved ones and heros

  • Obosi Warrior

    Who is pastor adeboye and who is fayose. Two people using two different ideologies to enslave the masses. One is religion other one is politics.
    What difference does his statement made.

    • nikoroorire

      The pastor to me is a religious Mercenary. He loves money so much. He worships the highest donor.

      • Omoba1

        Involvement in politics is the new strategy to generate income in the church now. Notice how these god of men are creeping slowly into politics by massaging the ego of politicians.

        Regardless of the intent of Adeboye, I’m infuriated by his comment. Fayose is a polarized figure, hence making such kind of statement regardless of the sum of money paid is insulting.

        In my own opinion, Adeboye is getting too thirsty for power and influence and this new strategy may destroy his goodwill and legacies. Someone should tell him to stay away from politics and focus on his circle of influence.

      • Obosi Warrior

        Adeboye can praise fayose, but you will never hear him speak against government stealing, corruption, or the masses not having money to send thier kids to school. Instead he will be collecting the little one they get, telling them thier reward is in heaven. Religion gbakwaa oku!

        • Michael

          The fault does not lie in religion or the Christian faith but in commen like Adeboye and the gullible who choose to follow them.

          • Obosi Warrior

            Woe betide who ever is taking advantage of the weak. Selling to them for filthy lucre what God Almighty has given for free.

            The gullible are the weak, they lack the strength to think rationally, every society have them. Some of them are the product of the societal hardships.

            Con men like adeboye feast on them like turkey meat. They don’t have conscience, because they are ruled by money.

  • Bo Biz

    What a confused party ! What a shameless state party chairman ! When will these myopic politicians understand the difference between politics and governance? I hate almost everything about Ayodele Fayose’s brand of politics,but NOT when it comes to being courageous and standing up in defence of his people. Give it to Ayodele Fayose !
    Which other state governor or local government chairperson in the entire wasteland called Nigeria has the balls to challenge the barbaric,marauding fulani herdsmen? Fayose’s so called insults of Buhari ,and safeguarding the lives and property of Ekiti people from the fulani killers which is more important to the Ekiti APC? Is Buhari beyond criticism?

  • Opekete

    If Pastor Adeboye is commending Fayose for criminalizing Fulani’s violent incursion into his state, I have no problem with it. In all sincerity, I support Fayose on that policy although I may not support his politics. It has come to a point when we have to resist the rampaging Fulani herdsmen in the south. Until true federalism is established in Nigeria, there can be no lasting peace and that is the simple truth.

    • Arabakpura

      The pastor should have been specific instead of speaking tongue-in-cheek!

  • Abimbola

    We expect to read news and not comments from mad men. Jide AWE’s bribery allegation is the reasoning of a lunatic. Ayo Fayose is commended for protecting his people from killer Fulani herdsmen and what is this gutter boy talking about?

  • Maria

    Adeboye is a conman. Unfortunately only f00ls fall for his pranks.

    • Say the truth

      You are probably one the fools. Your statement confirms that you are. Your position on this issue is quite predictable. How dare you refer to those who made a choice fools. Learn to comment without allowing your emotions to take a good part of you next time.

  • dami

    This was something Adeboye had no business getting into…now he will be ridiculed and forced to clarify his comments…religion and politics don’t mix; at least publicly.

    • Omoba1

      The man Adeboye seems to amaze me with his close proximity with politicians. Surprisingly, We are not privileged to the discussion he has with these men, but whatever he has been saying, it appears the public is not included because these politicians continue in their old and usual ways.

      Adeboye do not denounce them rather he praises them and wish them well. Though I know it is critical to oppose these strongmen, but the influence Adeboye wedges is thick enough to create a change in this country.

      Adeboye must decide who he stands for – the poor masses or the political/power elities. Apparently, it appears he has chosen his path with his frequent visitations and hosting of power mongers and his sweet tongue moist with praises for them.

    • Factsay

      In Islam, u must mix religion and politics

    • AlBsure23

      Brainless! Tabula rasa.

    • AlBsure23

      Mr Osinbajo is a pastor as well as a politician because he’s the Vice President of Nigeria. How does religion mix with politics in his case and you are good with it but frown at Mr Adeboye? You have only one name and that is Hypocrite.

      • Artful ºDodger

        You are the hypocrite here dude, a praise for the vile and disgusting gladden the heart of the igbos because you are bitter and greedy. Wail all you want, SS will never be a part of biafra.

    • ojo

      the question is if it was a APC governor the pastor address this way will APC member be insulting him am really proud of Pastor Adaboye for doing what other men of God fail to do,because a man of God is always made to say the truth at all time even if his biological son is the president of the country.

  • sab

    Why condemn him? Did Rev. Mbaka not condemn even the former President and PDP never called for his head? Why this soft skin for criticism?

    • Artful ºDodger

      Mbaka condemned the bad part of Jonathan and his/your igbo(do not get confused i havent said you are Ijaw or SS now even though the party is also yours now) PDP- the congregation of the descendant of demons. You see, there is a difference!

  • serubawon70

    Perhaps Adeboye should have been more specific. He said people know what he was talking about. But apparently parables and politics are of different polarities

    • AlBsure23

      If you did not understand what he was talking about, it meant he was not talking to you but Fayose.

      • serubawon70

        in tongues

  • FirecloudOFGOD

    I do sincerely hope that Pastor Adeboye is speaking these words having heard from the Holy Spirit!

    On a secular level, I am sure Adeboye has been closely following the politics involved in the movement of funds between Lagos and Ekiti; under the direction Obanikoro. He should be also familiar with Fayose’s acidic comment on his head of state. Men and women of God have always played important roles in the politics of the day during biblical times. One common theme is that God chooses leaders for a purpose, and he said we should respect them; ‘give unto Caesers what is Caesers’. At his own time he makes and removes leaders – Saul/David, Nebuchadnezzar, Ehud/King Eglon. Buhari is the present leader of Nigeria. The apple of Adeboye’s eye has not been exemplary in respecting the position and authority of the Presidency. I do hope that both the praise singer and the praised will accept it when they are paid back in their own coins!

    • stlords

      You end up saying nothing , your just like a broken which has no mekwatalizine

      • FirecloudOFGOD

        What?

  • Dazmillion

    Adeboye is of no use to anyone spiritually.

    • Say the truth

      Just like you are of no value to any media outlet because you have no name. You jumped in now because ADEBOYE’s name puts food on the table of the creator of this headline. You have adopted your moniker because your family and generation have ‘no name’.

      • Dazmillion

        Now I understand your problem. You thought Adeboye was Jesus in disguise.

        Dont worry, your savior Adeboye will soon visit you in your dream and dash you some xmas money

    • Julius

      lolz. Yes !!

    • Galantman

      Hahaha. You got it bros. It’s a shame

  • Say the truth

    Having had the opportunity of reading the headlines of other news media on the same news l have come to a conclusion that the PT reporter deliberately twisted the statement to suit his headline and earn patronage and money. That purpose has been effectively achieved and they are smiling to the bank. It is a good thing that the name Adeboye sells. It is one name that evokes emotions depending on the side of pendulum you stand. The followership is also quite ziseable. Number one Adeboye is entitled to his opinion as a free citizen. Mr Jide Awe simply played to the gallery to attract cheap popularity to self and party. Adeboye did speak on the courage of the governor to devise means to defend his people against ‘insurgents’. If you are not malicious you will agree with the expressed personal opinion considering the menace of the herdsmen. Whether in Benue, Plataeu, Kaduna or Kogi, Enugu or Ogun these merchants of death leave behind a trail of sorrow. Every men of goodwill should condemn their activities devoid of politics. That has nothing to do with politics but addressing a national problem. Mr Awe’s appeal to the Akindayomis to call Adeboye to order amount to him overstepping his bounds by venturing into what does not concern him and stoking the ember of rebellion in the church. An Awe with good conscience would not fault the move of the governor to stop killer herdsmen. It is just that when it suits us we play politics with everything. But the actual beneficiary of the brouhaha is PT. It was their creation from outset to make money and that is my opinion. While I commend them when they get right I must say that this one is in bad taste.

    • Obiayo

      You spoke well and forthrightly too, me brother.

    • Arabakpura

      He also went to Rivers state to do the Same thing; why hobnob with bribe-giving governors? Why has he not attended to Delta and Cross River states? There are no Christians there? Anyway he is entitled to his opinion as he may be preparing to run for governorship!

      He must be missing the former president who used to kneel down for him! BTW, why has he not visited him to pray for him? Hypocrites everywhere!

  • KBE

    When Fayose promoted over 15000 workers there was no word from Awe or APC nor any statement from the mob of internet hyenas and e-rat like Maria, Dazmillion etc.

    • serubawon70

      Is it the governor or state civil servicise commission who promotes workers? Promotion is by no means a favour

      • ebong

        Well spoken.promotion is an act of merit not of favor.

  • Otile

    The only two achievements Buhari has made since coming to power two years ago are: building a nice helipad in his village at Daura North, and marrying off his beautiful daughters to rich Northern Muslims. I don’t know if anyone can say that he did these noble acts for himself or for Nigeria at large.

  • Artful ºDodger

    RCCG is a church run with looted funds from the Nigeria treasury. How bad Adeboye must have missed all the donations in the name of tithes from rogue politicians not to talk of the billions of naira that come in regularly whenever Jonathan visited. That he was bribed by fayose is a possibility. RCCG is one church i will NEVER step into again!

      It is ironic that those who reject the truth because of hatred always end up facing the truth. It is your choice whether to attend rccg or not. Nobody cares about you telling us this on pages of newspapers. That is your personal cup of tea. There are many churches and mosques around join any one and shut up.

  • Shah

    People should leave the pastor alone, he commented on an aspect of fayose’s govt, stopping herdsmen attack in ekiti. Even if u think fayose is the devil incarnate we can all agree that policy was a good and brave move.
    May I add that the pastor is a man, n he dsnt have to always hear from the holy spirit to make a comment. Those condeming him are really idiotic! He commended an aspect of fayose’s policy not endorsing his govt.

    • Gbola

      If Pastor Adeboye is concerned with the suffering of both RCCG members and Nigerians as awhole, he wouldn’t have invoked or linked the name of a criminal who used a private jet to ferry Ghana-must-go bags filled with Dollars from Abuja to Ekiti with Obanikoro.
      —A man who had judges beat up and also closed the courts for days.

      This is not an example of a man a person pf Adeboyes standing ought to be promoting.

      Adeboye should be sensitive towards the plight of people who are suffering as a result gross corruption carried out by Fayose.

      Pleaseeeee !!

      • Say the truth

        You are always trying to confuse issues for obvious reason. The Pastor’s statement is documented in English language, read it again before rushing out to comment just because it is a Pastor. The bias of religion and politics will not allow you to reason properly in this case. What exactly is wrong with the statement that is direct, clear enough even for an illiterate to interpret? Stop behaving like a child and say the truth.

        • Gbola

          Hehehehehe

          MUST the truth be in line with your own opinion ???

        Was billion not spent in Ondo state during the last governorship election?

Please tell me the, difference between( 1)PDP and Apc (2) Fayem and Obanikoro (3) Buhari and Jonathan (4) Fayose and Akeredolu

      • Shah

        You miss my point, Adeboye was not endorsing Fayose on all his activities, he praised him on one aspect of governance.
        Dont loose that point, hailed him on halting the herdsmen attacks. Simple.

        • Gbola

          You are the one that missed my point.

          This shower of praises BY ADEBOYE on the person of Fayose was supposedly because Fayose protected the lives and properties of the indigenes of Ekiti.

          He also showered praises and support for the reelection of Jonathan — A President who turned his face the other way when it came to THE SAME PROTECTION OF LIVES AND PROPERTIES of the indigenes of thr ENTIRE NE. Rather than protect especially the indigenes of Borno, he instead focused on the Treasury — giving his consent to Dasuki to loot it dry and disburse it to his cronies.

          Hence it is this dual attitude of Adeboye that I am criticizing.
          Had the thousands of innocent people viciously murdered in Borno being Yorubas, I’m sure he wouldn’t have thrown his praises and support behind Jonathan.

          If Adeboye is going to inject himself into politics as if he’s a PUBLIC OFFICE HOLDER, THEN he should be ready to have his ENTIRE PUBLIC UTTERANCES AND ACTS examined under the microscope.

    • Bayo_Bamiduro

      Your comments seem most appropriate. I am sure Daddy G.O. is referring to Fayose in the context of his appropriate, courageous and radical response to the rampages of the fulani herdsmen and their free, unchallenged, unchecked reign of terror across the south and Christian north. The other governors were going to the president like defeated slaves begging for the interventionfof a lord who has remained intransigent, indifferent and lackadaisical and a lord who controls virtually all the means to bring the killers under control but would rather not do so for obvious reasons. Otherwise, the governor seems more like a rascal when it comes to some other issues where he ranks among the worst specie who should never be imitated least by a great man of God like Pastor Adeboye

  • DAVID OGINNI

    Every body can not sleep and face the same direction. Papa Adeboye has the right to commend Gov Fayose for out spoken on the APC lead govt, it you have case against him then charge him to court instead and stop prosecuting people on the pages of newspapers.if Fayose is really corrupt as the govt says, he will not have the courage to to condemn their acts like many can`t do now.

  • Controversial

    I would not be surprised if the next headline reads that Adeboye denies making such a statement. However, Fayose is so radical that he would probably produce the video or audio to prove his point. The main problem with political pastors is that they cannot stand for what they believe when trouble or controversy comes. I remember how Oyedepo denied the gates of hell comment after it sparked trouble. Even Adeboye denied his comment about Ramadan after it went viral online.

  • DAVID OGINNI

    What is aching these APC idiots? Is it this statement:
    “We thank God for your courage, for your boldness, we thank God for your being willing to take risks so that your people can be protected. You have been a governor who knows when to say enough is enough in defence of his people. And I’m sure you know what I’m talking about and I am sure the world knows. I don’t want to say more than that but be assured that we are praying for you and you will succeed in Jesus”.
    Is it not on record nation-wide that of all the governors only Fayose has been courageous enough against the New Book Haram (Fulani Herdsmen) unleashed to intimidate, and prepare the Southern and unconquered regions for final conquest when the time is due.
    It is obvious that if these APC idiots succeeds in taking over Ekiti State, they will sell out their people for political gains. Such people who have no regard for obvious truths, nor respect for The Church, nor men of God must not be allowed anywhere near the corridors of power!

Nonsense! is your man of God more than a pastor? is he God? why do you think his deeds and says can’t be criticized? Some of you need to hung and deported to congo!

      • say the truth

        Point out what is political in the Pastor ‘s comment. You and APC would have been happy and pleased if the governor had folded his hands and allowed herdsmen to have a field day like other cowards so called governors. TO yourselves be true killer herdsmen constitute a danger to the society.

      • Alexis J

        It’s easy to understand that Pastor Adeboye is commending Fayose on his effort against killer herdsmen in his state. U do not need to politicise it.

      This person is a bit angry sha… I actually ready this post, nothing in it talked about the north or Islam nor east west north of South… it only talked about a man of God taking sides in politics and the people of the state telling him to back out… so what concerts the people from the north or the imam and emits that do what ever you alleged here?

    My initial impression of Pastor Adeboye is that he is a very humble and respectable “man of God”. But when he bought a private jet and was credited as saying that he is “richer than Bill Gates” (the US billionaire), I shuddered. Now that he has dabbled into politics, I have grouped him to the rest of the “Nigerian Pastors” and my respect for him has gone.

      Keep your respect to yourself he does not need it to validate himself. He said he is richer than bill gates in a particular context which you did not bother to find out before jumping in to judge a matter you have no full details. And since you are just a jack you respect count for nothing.

      • Gbola

        God didn’t send him to boast of his own riches.
        Nothing in the Bible correlates with that.
        He is meant to preach about Jesus being OUR ONLY SAVIOR and our ONLY means of entering the kingdom of heaven.

        END of Story.

        Adeboye should mind his own business because he is giving us the impresion that that criminal Fayose has sown a “SEED” against prosecution and jail.

  • Say the truth

    I am sure any newspaper that put your name in their headline will fold up in less than a week because you are a bad market. The two of you are products of self delusion. Nincompu and never do well like you can not appreciate anything that is good. You are Africa and that explains why you are backward in your thinking and actions. Tell us your family name and mention the name of your village if you have any.

    There is something behind when Nigerian Pastors stands behing our politician, during the Period of GEJ they went several time to Israel and that never help GEJ to win the election. Pastors please get out of politics.

  • Galantman

    It’s this same Adeoye that threathen to open the gates of hell for any member of his church that voted for Buhari. After failing woefully he has resorted to orther tactics. Supporting thieves, criminals, vagabonds,who owned workers salaries for months is the height of hypocrisy. Man of God indeed. Shame on you and your type for dragging the church into dirty politics. Adeoye leave the cocoon of the “anointed ” then join politics proper and see how they will mess you.

    • dare ojo

      Noo, it was Pastor Oyedepo that said that at winners chapel and NOT Adeboye okay.

  • Amir

    This Adeboye is fast becoming a clown and a joke. Must he worship or befriend every buffoon in power? Even Fayose will wonder what kind of pastor Adeboye is.

    • Osakue

      Money and power drunk are pastors not part of Nigeria? Corruption is written all over them

  • Ohnigeria Godsavenigeria

    The worst evil that befell Nigerians was Jonathan goodlucks error of judgment that allowed the nepotistic Jega the opportunity to register a formidable axis of evil and wickedness, an Islamic bloodletting band, and an assemblage of the worst and the terrible in Nigeria and black race, as political party under the demonic nefarious names of Apc. The world have never at any time seen or witnessed such an awesome band of evil assemblage. A cursed platform that is not bothered about committing any evil to gain political power, no matter how satanic. A malicious band that doesn’t respect life, blood, Servants of God nor even God.
    A devilish evil cocoon that invented Boko Haram, murderous Fulani herdsmen, do or die politics, hate blackmail, killing for vote etc just to gain power. Apc was the evil characters that divided Nigerian security along ethnic, regional and political lines, divided Nigerians along fault lines of tribe, ethnicity and religion, humiliated Nigerian seat of power and reduced our presidency to a state of mockery, scared away foreign investors from Nigeria and permanently damaged the towering image of Nigeria beyond the repair. Apc corrupted our electoral body and restored back blood letting to our political field, brought back vote buying and manipulations ,apc abused national internet space and hired satanic agents to poison it with ethnic, religious, hate and evil bigotry. Apc undermined the integrity of the Nigerian media industry and corrupted them satanic lies, bigotry, blackmail and hate propaganda. It is not strange to any sincere citizen that this evil band shall get to the satanic nefarious low of blackmailing the towering humble servant of Grace like Daddy GO and seeking to sow discord amongst the redeemed church family because The servant of God spoke the truth about fayoshe. May the judgment of God upon apc be fast and sudden, may God implode, explode and destroy the evil satanic assemblage till no bit of it is spared. Amen.

      Just remember that your vice president who is a RCCG pastor got into power via Jega’s INEC. You guys defend these so called god of men like you share from there riches (obviously not). I cannot see how your comment is related to the above news other than “The servant of God spoke the truth about Fayose” though you do not have any fact to back it up. lets remember the coming generation and stop these arguments based on sentiments.

      In my own opinion, one of the worst evil that befell Nigeria is the rise of these Pentecostal churches

      • Ohnigeria Godsavenigeria

        What else do I expect from one of the hired internet defenders of the axis of evil party, do I expect you to support the truth and draw anger of your pay masters?. Just know that you shall one day stand before your maker to give account of your contributions in bringing pain, sorrow, death and anguish on Nigerians and Nigeria because of the filthy lucre.
        To you the coming of light to Nigeria that have saved millions and delivered them from the prison of sin and devil is your greatest disaster ,you preferred the promoters of Boko Haram ,terrorism, Fulani herdsmen and suicide bombers. May God reward you according to your evil works.

        • Whalerolex

          Don’t fail the coming generation as ignorance will not be an excuse. “Coming of light my ass”.

      • Osakue

        A governor that is implicated in the $2billion arms funds. 80% of our pastors eyes are focused more about their cash earning then God. As they preach it is their account balance that’s more on their mind. No matter are poor you are you must give church money.

        • Whalerolex

          This is a clear fact but many of these church members have been brainwashed. They are getting poorer, complaining about the hardship but always defending pastors who are getting richer. A guest minister in my church last week was boasting of how rich/great Adeboye was. He said he gave a NGO in UK £500 million. What a country!!!!!! I am not against churches but I will like the government to ban churches from having branches/franchise. All these general overseer tinxs just fantastically crazy

            You are NOT a Christian!

          • Whalerolex

            Thanks for your comment but why not let God’s grace in our lives judge that side.
            Simply ask yourself if your lifestyle can make people ask which God you serve. I mean honest people not hypocrites

  • Olatubosun

    We all know that fayose does nothing in Ekiti state……

  • idowu12

    Pastor Adeboye praises on Fayose is highly unbelievable, is the least to be expected of an high calibre pastor of his level. It is quite disappointing!.

  • government

    Our Jide has gone mad

  • serubawon70

    I was not surprised to read that Awe actually did not issue any press release. where did premium times get their press release from?

  • Ijeuwa

    You’ve to understand. Because of the recession, tithes have dwindled badly. So the pastorpreneurs have to look for other sources of income to maintain the opulent lifestyle.
