    The country would be better if we all make effort to remain informed. The private jets was not bought with the church money. the purpose is for evangelism, in advent of bottle necks, delays and non availability of commercial flights sometimes bcos the gospel must be preached
    The tithes do not come to RCCG pastor’s pocket, he is not the custodian, there is a strict process of cash transaction and authorities available for checks and balances.
