Human rights Lawyer, Femi Falana has advised the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Enoch Adeboye, to focus on the poor.
Falana, who is a Senior Advocate of Nigeria said this at the 2017 Lagos Book and Arts Festival (LABAF) holding at Freedom Park, Lagos.
According to the human rights lawyer, church congregants have given so much to these pastors but instead of giving back to the society, they continue to milk out money from their congregants.
Taking a swipe at Adeboye, Falana said some clerics prefer to build more branches instead of providing education and hospital that will be very affordable for the public.
“Most of the richest pastors in the world are from Nigeria, yet our people are getting poorer.
“If many of us had not attended mission schools built by the Catholics and the Anglicans…but what are we building now? What are our churches giving us?
“They are promising to build churches in every street. All the warehouses in Apapa built by Awolowo have all become churches and business centres.”
