It’s perhaps convenient to reside abroad and run commentary on social issues in Nigeria- via Twitter and Facebook.
Managing to stop short of expletives, Nigerian gay rights activist, Bisi Alimi- shared on his Facebook page, unflattering words about Pastor Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God.
Alimi, who is based in the United Kingdom, was reacting to the recent speculative report that Pastor Adeboye, allegedly purchased a new private jet.
In the Facebook post, the activist claimed that Adeboye was exploiting the vulnerability of his flock.
“Pastor Adeboye is an epitome of greed, corruption and everything bad that has enslaved Nigerians, not just at home but globally. This greedy man of GOSH is parasite that lives on the poverty of his church members. Nigeria has one of the highest rate of youth unemployment in the world. Nigeria health service is in a sorry state. Here we have a supposedly “MAN OF GOSH” living fat on the vulnerability of his members. This man, now has one of his pastors as the Vice President of Nigeria. The separation of church from the state in Nigeria is like trying to separate gin from lemonade.
I know this post will attract some hate and bigotry, but if you can be honest with yourself and face the truth instead of acting like the “idiots” some of you are good at acting. How has religion and men of GOSH improved the quality of life (I meant quality and not standard) of everyone of you? Still you will go to church on sunday, give your widow’s mite to these thieves in the night that only come to destroy your essence as human being and they in turn will use your money to build houses you can’t rent. Schools you can’t attend, hospitals you can’t pay for and planes that you will never be close enough to take a selfie with not to even talk of getting on board.
Wake up NIGERIANS from your sleep and slumber, see these greedy, arrogant and sly men for who are they. Take a week and not go to church, turn that energy to question everything you know. Take it to know something you dont know before. Switch off from everything you have been taught and open your mind eyes. Don’t be deceived, these men are after your money and not the goodness of mankind.”
