Nigerian singer, Seun Kuti, has asked pastors and imam to stop asking their congregants to pray for Nigeria.
Kuti, in a post on Instagram, said the clerics should rather tell worshippers to fight for the country.
The singer backed his post by pointing out that pastors who underperformed in their churches were sacked and not prayed for.
He also said that girls who accused pastors of raping them were not prayed for either.
In an accompanying post, he asked if religious leaders are afraid that their followers will also fight them.
“Switch up the sermon! I mean when some Pastors in some churches weren’t performing, we didn’t pray for them, we sacked them ( fought) from office. When some girls say some pastors raped them we didn’t pray for them na. When one man say one pastor knack him wife , the pastor no pray for am o but everyday pray for Nigeria, pray for your leaders. FIGHT FOR NIGERIA!! #getthesax,” he wrote.
He added: “Dear priest/imam. Stop saying pray for Nigeria and start telling people to fight for Nigeria. Abi u dey fear say dem go fight u too??”
