Primate Ayodele ready to build multi-million naira mosque in Lagos

The Leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Ayodele, has announced his readiness to build a multi-million naira mosque in Lagos.

Osho Oluwatosin, the Primate’s media aide, made this known in an e-signed press statement.

Primate Ayodele who initially spoke about his plans for the mosque in December made it known that the reason behind his decision isn’t for self glorification but to eliminate religion and embrace humanity.

“I believe there is no religion in Heaven, there is nothing like Christian heaven or Muslim heaven. Religion was created by humans and it has been a source of great divide among humans. I don’t know the reason behind religion but it has done more harm than good to humanity.’’

“My decision to build a mosque is not for self-glorification but to eliminate religion and embrace humanity. Jesus Christ never preached religion, He taught us to show love to people and never asked for the religion of anyone before he healed them. Jesus Christ is my model and since he didn’t preach religion, it’s best that I follow HIM whom I serve. I am not a religious fanatic because it won’t take me to heaven. I believe co-existing, cohabiting and showing love to everyone is the greatest religion anyone can adopt.’’

“I have done wide consultation, I have spoken with leaders from the Muslim communities about my decision to build a massive mosque and their responses were enormously encouraging. I will build the mosque and hand it over to the Muslim leaders. Also, I will have no interference whatsoever in its operation”, the Primate stated.

There are several Muslims that worship in his church; they are even allowed to wear their hijabs into the church premises. During fasting period, it is a tradition of Primate Ayodele to give provisions, live chickens, and food items to the Muslim community in his environment. Therefore, building a mosque is a step further to breaking the shackles of religion.
