The head pastor of the Covenant Church and the convener of The Platform Nigeria, Poju Oyemade, has advised clergymen on how to be successful.
He asked them to pray for revelation into the earth and “receive the powerful ideas”. He added that that is not enough as they have to search for people managers who can help them implement the ideas.
Pastor Poju said that they will fail if they want to be everything at the same time. He called them eyes that could see into the future but that whatever they have seen should be left to their managers to carry out.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, the general overseer of Christ Embassy, reacted to the guidelines rolled out by the federal government for the gradual reopening of churches.
In a video that trended online, the pastor said that one cannot say they believe in Jesus Christ and be afraid of viruses, adding that Jesus healed the sick by touching them in the bible.
The clergyman condemned many ministers of God who have been supporting government control of religious houses.
"These people who are afraid are pretending to be representing the Christians to the government, it's a shame. I think the government leaders are laughing at them.
"...If you are afraid of the virus, you have no gospel. Your gospel has ended. The moment you start giving such guidelines to people in the church, you've repudiated your faith in Christ," he said.
He said pastors who are scared of the disease need prayers. Pastor Chris added that the reason churches are still shut down is not because of government but men of God who convinced the government not to allow them open.

He said they told the government that churches must follow "wicked guidelines" before they can reopen.
