The recent seizure of $9.3m by South African authorities has been trailed with a lot of controversies, especially after reports surfaced that the private jet used to convey the money belonged to the President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor.
Okotie, in an article titled: ‘$9.3m scandal: Oritsejafor should do the right thing’, said the seizure has further dented the country’s image at a time when a lot of negative comments are said about the President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration, Daily Sun reports.
According to the man of God, it is not a sin to be friends with the President, it however becomes unacceptable when it is patronizing or self-serving, adding that Oritsejafor’s friendship with the president has been at the centre of the controversies.
He said: “The pastor does not show restraint in the way he goes about, publicly hobnobbing with the President as if he is the Chaplain of Aso Rock. This certainly has compromised the integrity of his office as CAN President and his latest incident is just the climax of embarrassing incidents we can’t tolerate any longer.
Oritsejafor has received a lot of criticisms over his involvement and the latest to lend his voice to the matter is the founder of Household of God Church, Chris Okotie.
