- Pastor Poju Oyemade
Pastor Poju Oyemade is admired by many for his practicality when addressing issues. During the coronavirus pandemic in Nigeria, Oyemade had taken a different position from some other prominent pastors on the closure of churches. Oyemade stated that “closing the doors of a physical building does not in any way mean the closure of the anointing of the spirit from working.”
When rape allegations were made against Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of COZA, by Busola Dakolo, Poju Oyemade has called for justice. He said he was heartbroken and sympathised with her. He also asked that steps be taken by the authorities Biodun Fatoyinbo was under and measures are taken to put an end to church hurt.
