According to report reaching OYOGist.com, the spiritual leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele has reportedly disclosed what the church uses tithes paid by Church members for.
Speaking on the amended Companies and Allied Matter Act CAMA at launch of his 2020/2021 edition of his annual book titled “Warning To A Nation”, Ayodele said the government doesn’t have business in Church matters as tithes collected by the church are dispensed to take care of widows and the underprivileged.
Ayodel said: “The church is neither a public liability company nor an enterprise. Yes, we collect tithes in our churches but the tithes we collect are meant to take care of the widows and the under privileged in the church. We have been doing this for a long time.”
You would recall that the newly signed law that gives government the power to appoint trustees for religious centres has generated public outrage and opposition. Many Christian unions and personalities have called the attention of the Buhari led administration to the negative effects of such law that has come to regulate the churches.
