Be like Robin Hood, give education to poor Nigerians not rice – Paul Adefarasin tells leaders


Senior Pastor of House on The Rock Church, Pastor Paul Adefarasin. has slammed Nigerian leaders who take from poor Nigerians but fail to give back.


Adefarasin, while preaching in his church, advised leaders to provide education to the poor rather than distribute rice, food items as a poverty alleviation program.


The clergy urged Nigerian leaders to behave like Robin Hood by giving back to the poor.


“If you are in the system, you should behave like Robin Hood, take from them and give it to the poor.


“You should have less so that they can have more. I have that sword in my office.


“The sword of the Lord of Luxury, Robin Hood, why? Because part of my job is to make sure that the wealth of Nigeria is redistributed with an evenness,” he said.


“How do you do it, it’s not by giving the poor rice, oil at election time, providing them education in today’s age does not have to be formal. We have tablets so we can do research and development.”


Adefarasin noted that he would continue to speak about these things even as he advised those willing to go into politics to be deliberate.


“You have to go into politics and government deliberately if you want to.


“And if nobody will speak about it, the righteous will speak about it. Our righteousness is not of ourselves but it is of him and he will protect,” he said.
