The pastor of Daystar Christian Centre Sam Adeyemi recently got the attention of Nigerians after he made a statement which criticised traditional gods in Nigeria. The man of God made this statement during a service in his church.
Sam Adeyemi was trying to make a point of saying that the fear in humans were merely self orchestrated and constructed by our culture.
He made a point of saying that due to the local gods promoted and advanced by culture, fear has been thoroughly passed down from human to human. It is with reference to this that he made a point of talking about Sango.
According to him, if Sango was as powerful as people have believed him to be, he would have supplied people electricity long before it was invented.

This direct inference to electricity must come from the fact that Sango is believed to be the god of lightning and thunder.

Although Sam Adeyemi's church members were thrilled to hear him talk like that, many Nigerians were not particularly enthused by his statement.
Read his words below:
"You were only raised on a culture of fear; there is nothing. There is absolutely nothing. You are afraid of Sango. If Sango was powerful, why did he not supply electricity to our cities. Nonsense. It is amazing how we have national foolishness. We believe in Sango, Sanpona, yet they could not supply us with electricity. And the white man came to colonise Sango, Sanpona and they could not overthrow them. Foolish idols, you better throw them away. Nonsense."
