Netizens react as Paul Enenche breaks silence

Pastor Paul Enenche’s statement on the incident with his church member sparked mixed reactions online. Read some of them below:


“Pastor Paul should apologise to her publicly just the same way he embarrassed her .”


“Too many of you saying the pastor should publicly go tell her sorry. I think this is enough to clear the impression the public had. If you are in the position of the pastor, you'll do the same unless you are one who doesn’t care about competence and brilliance. Where on earth will a law graduate speak ️ like that ?”


“A public apology is gonna be better,she shouldn’t be shamed publicly and apologized to privately.”


“Another observation I have concerning this matter is, everyone should try and work on their self-esteem and confidence. The woman might actually be dealing with stage fright or something...she was not saying the correct thing, however, it is proven that she is truly a law graduate in NIGERIA. Nigeria my country.”

I understand why Pastor Enenche reacted that way - PR Expert speaks

A Nigerian PR expert, Uriri Onojake, spoke with and shared his thoughts on how Pastor Paul Enenche reacted to his church member who gave what he thought was a fake testimony.

He said:

"I have watched the whole episode and I have also followed the commentary on the whole issue. Pastor Paul could have handled things better and I also understand why he reacted in that manner. The church has been under attack for fake miracles and the likes and he felt it was important to shut down any scenario that would tarnish the image of the church. But beyond the press statement, it would have been better if the apology had come just like the way the rebuke had come. Address it in the open just like she was shut down openly before it became trending news in the media."
