Pastor EA Adeboye of The Redeemed Christian Church of God has allegedly purchased a Gulfstream Jet for a whooping sum of $65million, the same type Pastor TB Joshua bought for himself.
The new jet is said to have been purchased in May 2015. According to Sahara Reporters, the pastor has also floated a new luxury jet company, Emmanuel Aviation. The G550 jet was made in Georgia and is far newer than the one purchased by Prophet TB Joshua months earlier.
The older Gulfstream GIV owned by the pastor has been jettisoned following the arrival of the new one. Pastor Adeboye becomes the second Nigerian pastor to start a private airline in the country after Bishop David Oyedepo.
Nigerian prosperity pastors have emerged as some of the wealthiest preachers in the world, but their luxury lifestyles are at variance with the squalor and poverty of most members of their churches.
