Popular singer, Seun Kuti has come out to say that pastors and imams should stop asking their congregants to pray for Nigeria. He recently revealed this via his social media page, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, clerics need to start telling their congregants to fight for the country instead of praying because pastors who underperform in their churches are sacked and not prayed for.
He added that girls who accused pastors of raping them weren’t prayed for, including men who accused pastors of sleeping with their wives.
His words, “Switch up the sermon! I mean when some Pastors in some churches weren’t performing, we didn’t pray for them, we sacked them ( fought) from office. When some girls say some pastors raped them we didn’t pray for them na. When one man say one pastor knack him wife , the pastor no pray for am o but everyday pray for Nigeria, pray for your leaders. FIGHT FOR NIGERIA!! #getthesax”
