Noble Igwe who reacted to the controversy surrounding ‘rich pastors in Nigeria’, has disclosed that the level of poverty in the country has helped churches to thrive.
According to Noble Igwe, most Nigerians think that church will make life better for them. His tweet reads;
The level of poverty in the country helps the churches to thrive. Because they believe that church will make life better for them.
This is coming after Daddy Freeze condemned founder of the Living Faith Church, Bishop David Oyedepo, for saying that he is dangerously wealthy. Speaking on the topic “Heralding the dominion era of the church,” the clergyman boasted of God’s blessings on him and that he has a clear conscience.
“I don’t share any booty from any government. I have a clear conscience; I am dangerously wealthy. I am rich, whatever I want, comes. That’s what they call wealth,” he said.
But the on-air personality said:
“I can’t wait to watch a video of this screeching sorry I meant preaching..??
“How can a man who claims he is from God brag like this? If people stopped giving him their money his bragging will end, but the problem is they can never stop giving him out of the little they have.
“How can you claim to be so dangerously rich teaching about a kind God in a country so dangerously poor? NIGERIA, ACCORDING TO THE WORLD POVERTY REPORT, IS THE POVERTY CAPITAL OF THE WORLD?”
