Nollywood actress, Kemi Lala Akindoju, slams people speaking against Christians participating in the Jesus Movement on social media
Earlier on Tuesday, gospel minister and pastor, Nathaniel Bassey called on Christians via his social media handle to call on the name of Jesus at 12PM on the land of Nigeria using social media as an act of faith, following recent happenings in the land
This spurred many including the senior pastors of Deeper life Christian ministry and Redeemed Christian Church if God, Pastor W. F. Kumuyi and Pastor E. A. Adeboye respectively to share the picture on their social media pages calling the name of #Jesus.
Media personality, Daddy Freeze, stated his disagreement of the trend saying Pastor Nathaniel should have asked people to get their PVC’s rather than calling on the name JESUS
Posting a picture of Bassey’s tweet, the OAP wrote on his Instagram page, “Instead of telling people to go and get their PVC, na to put Jesus for display picture. Who did this to us? Nigeria is living proof that Jesus can’t bring peace. It’s been 60 years of doing the same thing with no result bro. Come on.”
Defending the trend, Akindoju argued that people should be left to express their faith without bully. Stating that churches have been organizing voters registration for months and encouraging their members to get their PVC’s and vote wisely.
“Churches have been organising voters’ registration programs for months at no cost,
“They have been educating their members on the importance of voting and being active citizens. But y’all want to bully people for exercising their faith?

“If you don’t like it, jump and pass, but bullying and insulting is so wrong. Some churches even insist on members having PVCs. There’s no shame in praying. WE WILL PRAY, VOTE, ENGAGE THE SYSTEM AND INSIST.” She tweeted
She further stated how churches have been playing their part to make the country better, and charged Nigerians to channel that energy on the government instead of bullying people because of a show of their faith.
“When the same handles were posting PVC matters, Y’all didn’t talk. People say they want to post Jesus instead of all the doom and gloom today and you’re angry. Have you used this same energy to hold your leaders accountable?
“How many of you have contributed anything to improve the living conditions of any Nigerian. Christians and churches are feeding people, paying school fees, getting people rehabilitated and actually doing what your government should do but y’all just decide to pick on people??? Block them if you don’t like it. Gosh,” she wrote.
