According to her, a rich man surrounded by 10 poor people is a poor man in waiting. She described the prayer as a selfish mindset. Her lengthy thread on X read in part:

"In my family, I will not be the only go to person, we all shall blossom! Anybody coming to me for refreshment will be for leisure, my colleagues will prosper as I prosper, my friends will succeed as I succeed.

RCCG's Adeboye speaks on using demonic power

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that RCCG's general overseer Adeboye had spoken on using demonic powers.

While reacting to the rumours from critics claiming that he consults demonic forces for powers, Adeboye urged his congregation to ask God to kill him if he genuinely consults demonic forces.

During his sermon on Friday night, August 11, at the RCCG 2023 national convention, at the Redemption Camp on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, the cleric said he initially did not want to address the rumours but had a change of mind during one of his prayer sessions.
