PRIMATE Elijah Ayodele of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Ministry, Lagos has called on Nigerian leaders to be compassionate and know that they are in position of authority to serve the people.
Speaking at a thanksgiving service to mark his birthday and to launch Golden TV, in his church in Lagos on Thursday, he said that the president, governors and the people must show love to the needy ones in the society.
“Why can’t our representatives in the National Assembly dedicate Christmas period as a time of visiting and giving to the needy in their community? They only like to do things to show-off for their selfish interest. How many of the senators care for the people in the hospitals? How many of them will enter public transport to listen to the feelings of the masses? They are just there to make money. We don’t have compassionate leaders yet,” he said.
Ayodele said that one does not have to be a Christian to benefit from the largesse of his church.
“Christians and Muslims are all calling on the same God with different languages.
“I will confess that God is the secret behind the success of my church. That is why we are going to do an all night revival at National Stadium on July 5. We are proposing to start a church in the US and Canada,” he said.
The General Manager of Golden TV, Bode Philips described the station as the first satellite television by a white garment church in the country. The station is established to propagate the gospel and to capture the golden moment.
