Enoch Adeboye, the general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), has sparked arguments on social media platforms over his teaching on extramarital relationships.

The cleric had taken to his verified Twitter page on Wednesday to disclose that he once asked one of his sons to fire his secretary to prevent an extra-marital affair.

Adeboye said this in a series of tweets while sharing his take on intimate friendships outside marriage.

“One of my sons told me that he was always excited to resume office every Monday so he would get to see his secretary again. I told him to fire her immediately. No one is worth your marriage,” he wrote.

The statement has, however, sparked a heated debate on social media platforms especially Twitter, where users are currently registering their different opinions.

While a segment of users expressed outrage at the cleric’s call for the sack of the secretary — stating that the “problem clearly lies with the son” — others argued that his critics would apply more extreme measures if they were in Adeboye’s shoes.

“You’re angry because a Pastor Adeboye said one of his sons should fire a lady he was crushing on despite being married. You people will still come back days later to drag female secretaries for sleeping with your husbands. Do you hate the message or you hate the messenger,” a Twitter user said.

“My sister if you chase away the help cos you feel she might tempt your hubby then you have no right to blast Pastor Adeboye. Like the only crime, your help committed is developing breast and growing into a beautiful woman. Everyone is woke on social media, hypocrites,” another user said.

Here is what some Nigerians had to say:
