..He makes a food pyramid of noodles for the masses.
One of the good peculiarities of a progressive minded person is the ability to identify progress and good gesture of others and the urge to promote and encourage it because it is only by appreciation will the giver be motivated to do more, this culture is a substantiated human nature that is as old as time.
When I noticed the actions of this man of God in ensuring the government is assisted in her effort at providing palliative stimulus to cushion the effect of the total lockdown of Nigeria, I marveled as a lot of questions that flashed through my mind, one of which included “What manner of Prophet is this?”.
Snr Prophet Jaremiah Omoto Futeyin is the General Overseer of Mercy Land Church Warri, Delta State. Unknown to many and people like me before now; because he is not into loud publicity of his good deeds like most, he, a rare gem that has been in the ministry of blessing people from all over Nigeria through many medium that includes, but not limited to Radio and TV programs where people phone in to receive outright donation ranging from 10k to 100k instantly, little wonder his action at this period was executed without much notice.
“An old woman doesn’t get old in a dance she learnt at youth”.
Times are different, and we live in a time when every good measure would be made open to encourage one another because on through collective and United purpose that we can scale through.
Considering the pangs of hunger on the citizens, the discrimination that has graced the government palliatives and even the donations made by individuals and captains of industry, one gets sceptical if the purpose for which these goodwill are meant will serve its purpose or just another medium to enrich few at the expense of the many.
It becomes obvious and heart warming that in a society where religion has become a tool for amassing wealth, there remains men of God who believe it is better to reach back, not for novelty but for the purpose and meaning of the word “Giving Back”.
“I think this should be a lesson, a challenge to other men of God, and individuals as well. We live at a critical time when only the strength of the strong with carry the weak through and this must be done through genuine act of giving to save and not to promote your businesses.
“I therefore call on individuals, religious leaders, politicians, captains of industries, who may still have the zeal to give, to do it through the appropriate channels like planning the palliative before involving the government rather than pouring scarce resources into leaking pockets”.
I encourage the man of God, Snr Prophet Jeremiah Omoto Futeyin, not to relent in doing good, especially at this time of Coronavirus pandemic as his good and cash gift to Delta State Government is the type that we’re sure will get to people as at when due, who actually need them.
