Pastor Fatoyibo’s Description Of Igbos As Tight Fisted Is Unacceptable; We Demand Apology For The Misrepresentation – Mazi Iroegbu

 

The widely reported statement of Biodun Fatoyibo, an Abuja based pastor, that Igbos do not give generously towards the work of the Lord resulting in that part of the country not having mega churches, has been rebutted as an attempt to discredit the entire people of the south east.

Writing on Ndi Igbo Face Book wall, an Igbo activist, Mazi Nnamdi Iroegbu, said:

“The attempt to discredit the Igbo nation by calling them tight fisted is quite unacceptable. It is unfortunate that most churches worship mammon. The Igbo do not worship mammon. The attempt to discredit the Igbo nation by calling them tight fisted is quite unacceptable.

“ Pastor Biodun erred terribly by preaching such heresy on the pulpit. Igbos are not hustlers, we are hardworking people. We don’t throw away money we worked so hard to earn. Nobody can cajole the Igboman to release funds. Igbos use money to help the needy and assist the society including churches…

“The issue of mega churches does not give value to Christianity. The church is the human being. There is no church in Nigeria that can say that the Igbo are not playing the roles they ought to play financially and otherwise. Pastor Biodun is wrong to describe Igbo people as tight fisted.

“There is no church in Nigeria that can say that the Igbo are not playing the roles they ought to play financially and otherwise. Pastor Biodun is wrong to describe Igbo people as tight fisted. It is a wrong representation and he owes Ndigbo an apology for making that statement. Igbos worship God, not money”, he summed.
