You may want to see the top 10 Nigeria’s richest pastors and their net worth. Nigeria is a religious nation. There is no nation in Nigeria that calls God in a like manner to Nigerians.
This could be testified by the fact that every street is filled with churches. It remains small for the number of churches in Nigeria to match up to number of residential houses.
Irrespective of the proliferation of churches and worship centers all over the country, evil keep increasing day after day.
This often times makes one to sit and wonder if actually we call God from our heart or which God we call. The same way church is expanding is the numbers of pastors expanding.
Although one may find just a few who truly and sincerely serve God. I do sincerely believe and think that the majority of those we see especially with flamboyant lifestyle are fake and lion in sheep clothing.
Many religious men and women defraud men and women in the name of the service they are rendering to God. This testify to why Jesus says that on the last day many will come and say to me lord, did we not preach and perform miracle in your name and I will tell them, get behind me, I do not know you.
Jesus they claim to follow lived as one of the poorest life any human can live. Although, I am not insinuating that wealth is bad but it is just the means through which it is acquired. Jesus once drove people out the church for buying and selling. What we see in our churches today is worst than what happened then. I wonder what God will do if he happens to visit the churches today.
You may agree or disagree with my own opinion but I strongly believe that when we have true servants of God in Nigeria in fact very few of them, our country and people will change to be better.
Bearing this mind, we want to present the list of Nigeria’s top 10 richest pastors. Remember that riches are not Holiness which pastors and their followers must aspire for and work towards to achieve it. Feel free to share your comments and argue our point and back up with any reason you may have.
