In the wake of the ongoing legal dispute between popular OAP Daddy Freeze and the founder of Salvation ministries Pastor David Ibiyeomie, a Nigerian social media user user took to Facebook to defend pastors of so many perceived misinformations leveled against them.
The dispute began when Daddy Freeze called out Winners chapel G.O Bishop David Oyedepo insinuating that his 30 year marriage anniversary doesn’t signify a good married life. His comments drew the attention of Pastor David Ibiyeomie who launched a verbal onslaught against the controversial OAP resulting to the latter’s advancement to seek retribution in court. As expected, so many Nigerians has taken sides with their favourite leader as the war of words rages on various social media platforms. A Nigerian man added to the fracas exonerating pastors in general and insisted that they run the church better than the way politicians run the country.
“NIGERIAN PASTORS They are running their churches 100% better than the way the president is running the country. The fact is many Nigerians are losing it.”
“They can’t think beyond going after pastors. In what way has pastors prevented Nigeria from owning an airline In what way do pastors prevent Nigeria from having industries less than 0.0001% of pastors own Jets in Nigeria. —-but no, let us forget the over 70% that earn less than 50k/month and focus on the 0.0001% than own jets.”
“If you run your governments the way church leaders are running churches. Nigeria might be a Qatar right now. In all these arguments Canaanland has had stable electricity and water supply for its over 15,000 residents since 1999 and is already on the verge of converting waste to electricity.”
“RCCG is producing 25MW of electricity. Yet your … govt you pay compulsory tax, vat, CIT, Pet Tax has not been able to give you light decades after independence. Living Faith has more than 25,000 Staff and has never owed any of the salary! Yet your state govt that collects Allocation plus Tax cannot pay full salary.
“Living Faith, a single Church, is schooling 16 thousand of your Citizens in Higher institutions and many more at primary and Secondary levels yet you think you have the capacity to waggle your tongueI went for Shiloh all through and stayed in the staff quarters, yet it was electricity all through; for one second, water did not go off in spite of thousands that were present.
“On a normal day you won’t walk 20 metres before you find a segregated bin to dispose your waste.The entire area was fully covered by different layers of Security with multiple CCTV and IoT enabled barrier gates.”
“And yet your Abuja, capital of the Nation does not have CCTV yet you open your …. mouth to talk down on pastors! Between the guy that calls himself Area father and Bishop David Oyedepo Ministries International who resigned a federal job and started a Church of 3 people and has widened it to over 6,000 churches globally, over 200 schools, 2 hospitals, Over 1000 hectares farm for livestock and crop, Another farm in Igbesa and CU.
“With 15,000 housing Estate in progress, Water factories, Zeolite factory, One Research center, a scholarship fund, Beverage factories, 10 million books, Publishing house, Radio Station etc who has had more impact or who will have better capacity to govern the nation…????? Canaanland hosts hundreds of thousands of people every week yet no stampede ever.
“Government gathered people at stadium for recruitment exercise and before it even began, many were dead!Living Faith already has a master plan till 2032 yet govt does not have a plan for 2020!You know Illogicality is the trademark of most Africans. They fail to think beyond their prejudices and sentiments hence Africa has remained on the ground.
“Can we imagine how developed the nation would have been if we have people with the right mindset at the helm of the nation’s affairs? God bless all our pastors. THE PUBLIC SHOULD BE CAREFUL WITH THEIR TONGUE'”
“Below is what daddy freeze said about Oyedepo some time ago and it wasn’t a hate speech… Now he is sounding civilized because he felt threatened… it’s well with us… Imagine none of them have got the guts to talk about our president and what’s happening… Na pastors be una problem… Meanwhile am not a preacher of War!!!”
