Prophet Jeremiah Omoto Fufeyin, the founder of Mercy City Church in Warri, Delta State, is making waves online for his extravagant birthday gift to his wife, Anthonia Fufeyin.
During her birthday celebration on October 29, 2023, at the Mercy City Church headquarters, the clergyman presented his wife with a staggering N55 million in cash.
In a video that has gone viral, Prophet Fufeyin handed over a key to his wife and told her to take anything she found in the safe. When she opened the safe and saw bundles of money worth N55 million, she was dazed with joy and even lay on top of the money, wrapped in nylon.
However, this extravagant display of wealth has sparked outrage among many, as they felt that some of the church members were in desperate need of assistance and could have benefited from the money.
People expressed their concerns about pastors’ lavish spending, especially in churches where congregants are struggling financially. They also questioned the priorities of such gestures when some church members are facing financial hardship.
It’s worth noting that this isn’t the first time the billionaire pastor has given a significant cash gift to his wife on her birthday, as he had previously gifted her 20 million naira in a similar manner.
