Nigerian politician and former aviation minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has weighed in on the news of Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) minister who took his own life.
It was earlier reported that the young Abuja-based minister, Michael Arowosaiye, took his own life after facing problems with his accommodation.
Fani-Kayode took to his Twitter handle to call out the church as well as ask questions. He expressed surprise that a church will sit back and do nothing while one of their own is in great need.
He tweeted: “For a church to sit by and do nothing when one of its young ministers cannot pay his rent is sad. For them to turn their backs on him and drive him into such a state of frustration, despair and desparation that he ends up committing suicide is dam*n right condemnable. RCCG why?”
It is no longer news that churches are organisations that rake in huge amounts of money on a daily basis and many are as surprised as Fani-Kayode about how the church couldn't assist Michael with his accommodation challenges.
Many of them took to FFK's comment section to express themselves. One MJ Gold is of the opinion that Michael was not fit to be a minister since he resorted to suicide.
While Attorney Oforleta is of the opinion that churches these days lack empathy for their members.

In other news, Legit.ng reported that a final year student at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, Chukwuemeka Akachi, took his own life after losing a prolonged battle with mental illness.
Akachi, who was a poet, wrote two suicide notes on his Facebook page few hours before he took the poison that led to his death on May 13, 2019. In fact, it would appear that when he dropped the first note, many tried to dissuade him from his plan. But in a second note, he told them once and for all that his mind was made up - he was going to end it.
