THE TAI SOLARIN STORY........

Posted: Updated:

Readers discretion strongly advised........ Tai Solarin, was not a man of God. With the fear of God, he established the famous Mayflower School Ikenne in 1956. Through honesty and sincerity, he nurtured it to be one of the best secondary schools in Nigeria.With steely righteousness, he practiced what he preached. Solarin, was known to always wear simple khaki shorts and shirt. He believed in the power of education to transform individuals . So rich or poor, Mayflower was home to all. He founded Mayflower out of genuine,unfettered,earnest and heartfelt feeling about Nigeria and the future generation. He could have made a fortune from the school but this incorrigible atheist chose not to. Bishop David Oyedepo, is a man of God. He is the founder of Living Faith Church Worldwide. His Church auditorium in Ogun State, seats 50,000. It is, by Guinness Book of World Record, the largest in the World. According to Forbes Magazine, he is worth $150 million dollars. The richest pastor in Nigeria. And one of the richest men in the world. This humble man of God owns four private planes. His schools: Kingdom Heritage Primary School, Faith Academy ( a full boarding) Secondary School, Covenant University and Landmark University are the most expensive schools in Nigeria. In a country, with one of the lowest per capita income in the world. Only 10% of those that pay tithes and offerings in Oyedepo's churches can afford to put their children in schools set up by Living Faith Church Worldwide. More than 80% of those whose wards are in these schools, STEAL somehow, in other to provide quality education for their children. If all you can afford at the Winners Chapel is your widow's mite. Then your children do not deserve quality education. Selah. According to the book of Common Sense, blessed are the poor, for they are good to fill up churches. The kingdom of heaven belongs to those that have what it takes_ MONEY! Selah. Solarin, a "sinner" by our standard, knew education was essential to our future and will illuminate our path to progress. Today's MEN OF GOD are taking full advantage of the failure of Government in the area of education and are making money at the peril of our future generation. Its a jungle when it comes to Education now. Only the very rich survive. THIS IS NIGERIA, Education; thanks to some of these churches has been dragged into the class warfare. The first Bible I owned, was given to me and to millions of other students in Lagos State, by the Gideon Society_ No strings attached. It was given to us FREE. Christianity, then I understood. It was made simple and Christians spoke English. Nowadays, Christians speak Greek. And when you ask questions; they break it down to you by speaking in tongues. Balderdash! The church was never confused with a financial institution. Hence, the phrase Church rat. Now Church Rats are the richest Cats in the country. With Churches now having IPO numbers. I am not a saint, far from it. I am just a man. One who seriously need your prayers. But one thing I know is this: I would rather be in Hell with Tai Solarin, than be in heaven with these modern day MEN OF GOD. Oluwa ki binu. Ti Oluwa ban bi nu, ati fi ibinu pa ile aye re..................... Haruna Ishola. 22274Like · · Promote · Share
