Nigeria, like many African countries, is a very religious society. Many citizens of the country do not take the words of their preachers with levity and anything these pastors proclaim are usually seen as messages from God.
Despite that, there are also a large number of Nigerians who have now taken it upon themselves to question their preachers especially if they feel their teachings are not as exactly stated in their holy books.

One issue that has caused a lot of controversy on social media with Nigerian pastors is the issue of paying tithes. While many people believe that it is unbiblical or that it is better to give to the needy rather than pay to the church, others feel it is a proclamation from God that must be obeyed.
Just recently, Nigerian preacher, Pastor David Oyedepo, took to his Twitter page to share his take on tithing for the umpteenth time.
The man of God said that paying tithes is an inescapable covenant obligation. He also said that wealth and prosperity is not possible without paying tithes. The preacher added that anyone who does not pay tithes is under a financial curse.
He wrote: “Tithing is an inescapable covenant obligation. Prosperity not just wealth is impossible without tithing, because when you're not paying your tithe, you're under a financial curse.”
