PATRICK OBAHIAGBON ON PASTORS AND PRIVATE JETS

Hon. Patrick Obahiagbon needs no introduction, you know he's never short of grammatical bullets. Here's his latest offering and the topic is on Pastors and Private jets. Pls get me an interpreter and wake me when you're done reading *yawns*.

We must all begin to deprecate this razzmatazz and Nestorian braggadocio in the "HOUSE OF GOD" because when there is no difference between the values of a Pastor and a typical Nigerian Politician, then it's truly a bolekaja ambience" *stretches* Done??
