      Do not deceive yourself. Jet will expand what network? Reach which people? The hungry people in the villages that he is going preach to and take their money?

        I wonder how many hungry people you, declan, have been able to reach in the village. Hippocrates, you will sit down there and be talking trash about other people you don’t know where they started from. Has The Lord put another mans judgement in your hand?

    What a scam!!! For goodness sake, what does he and his likes want a private jets for? Not in the midst of the severe poverty in Nigeria and his flock. I don’t blame him but his followers for their ignorance and gullibility. Its their money. Someone called it a gift…lol What a laugh! Gift from 10% tithes and offerings? They will always remain poorer and go away empty-handed; while the so-called richer. God is not mocked.

    Hmm wat a shame. It was the money used in financing Boko haram that he used part of it to make that purchase. I cant imagine wat this man would want a private jet for. Where is he going with the jet,? Who is going to maintain the jet and fuel it. Your guess is as good as mine. I believe the poor masses in his congregation would have welcomed these amount of money to help finance their wards in school. I believe that would have gone a long way in alleviating their stress. It is quite unfortunate.

      Iyabo, if i give you something that will impact negatively on your public image,wont you reject it? Look around you,look at these so called Churches, more than 70% of the congregation can barely afford to have 2 meals a day,yet they pay tithes,Sunday donations etc,its the seige mentality that these Pastors have put on their congregation.Where in Nigeria do you see Baptist,Methodist Pastors or Catholic Revs,buying private jets? Its because they are accountable to somebody and they dont see Church as a Business,whereas, i can wake up tomorrow and claim to have a divine call and start a church from my sitting room,target a gullible rich man to donate or pay for a hall,gather people and start a church. I see these things, i know pple,whom were jobless for yrs and suddenly start a church and living large within 2 yrs. What does Oritshajefor need a jet for? to fly to riverine areas to preach? or attend pastors conference? or will he ever allow members of his congregation fly in it from Warri to Lagos? NO!,enough of all these godly respect for pastors who dont deserve it. They are human beings like you and me and the average human being is greedy and that is what i see.


    November 12, 2012 at 6:46 AM

    Anybody can buy anything that he or she feels is good for him or her as far as the money is available.Though,i am not against the idea of purchasing a jet,boat or horses to make your travelling smoother,easier and comfortable, but even the pope of the Catholic church travels all around with the Country’s airline and this is a big challenge to the airline industry in Nigeria.I am not a catholic and i was not born a catholic, but this is patriotic,simple.
    When most of these pastors started the work,pushing their old Jalopies all around the street and sweating without a fix salary,no one was looking,so just leave them alone.

    do not compare what is of God to what is of this world. this huge amount if used for the poor physically and spiritually would have save many souls. the bible says do not love the luxuries of this world, jesus told the rich man to sell all his possesion and give to the poor. though this effort is good, in GOD work salvation first.

    Guys listen to me. The bible says the poor will always be with you. Till Jesus comes u can never finish feeding Nigerians even in USA their are still poor people. When Dan gote bought a jet why didn’t Nigerian talk of poverty. When senators are paid £1 million a year why did’t nigerians complaint when a man of God buys a jet it is a problem Grow up Nigerians jet is nothing in the developing world. it is like acquiring a car. You donot know the source of the money so stop judging. God is not partial no man has excuse to fail in life. We all have equil opportunity. People should discover their talent and put it into use and stop pointing finger to pastors. Let all the pastor ride bicycle, will it make Nigerians rich or divide the whole church money. Pls Talk on something that will better urlives and when u have found ur place in destiny and impact lives people will celebrate u

    Press help Nigeria na!
    Am not of Papa Ayo’s ministry, but was part of d function…
    Pls lets take note of these facts:
    1) Papa Ayo didn’t buy d jet, it was a anniversary gift;
    2) It came as a surprise to him from from a group that called itself ‘Papa’s children’;
    3) He demanded for a list of those involved in d air plane acquisition, meaning he does not even know dem;
    4) Some members did not even know about it meaning it wasn’t even announced in d church.
    So Nigerians, do not just take what d press sells to u hook, line and sinker. If God has blessed you, brake an alabaster box of ointment on a man of God, less u.
    I love u for d truth

    i just pity all those who does not want men of god to have good things, but they want footballers who does not heal people’s sicknesses, cast out oppressive spirits from people and all other human sufferings to have Private jets. Its a pity that many people think like that. Can you count the amount of people who have been helped and touched by these instruments? i think it lack of wisdom and poverty mentality that is making them think for a pastor to have a jet is bad. Have you ever waited in the Airport for 3 hours to board a flight for a trip that will last for only one hour? jets will help you save all that time. i like good things. i want to have my own jet one day too. Thank God for Papa Ajo who has shown me the way that its possible. Church people open your eyes. dont follow fools to criticise. Celebrate good things. Then you will attract good things. BE WISE!

    it is not a pastor’s job to feed d poor or provide employment or even enable business not to talk of education or health – that’s govt’s job.
    a pastor is a shepherd whose responsibility is his flocks souls and spiritual wellbeing.

    Is it possible to lease out any of the following, cars, houses, boats, aeroplanes, etc.
    Now, if it is possible to lease out the few things mentioned above and after it has been leased out, who is supposed to be in-charge, is it the owner or the person or company, such items were leased to?
    Who were those inside the said “hired private jet” with $9.3 million? can’t we know their names, if their names can not be mentioned, Then why is it that, the name of the innocent CAN president, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor who was not in the jet, and was not in South Africa as the time, mentioned?
    Thank You Naija.
