Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has urged pastors in Nigeria to pay Pentecost Tax.
Osinbajo stated this while speaking in Lagos yesterday, during the public presentation at the book launch of “Kumuyi, Defender of the Faith”. The book is a biography of Pastor Folorunsho Kumuyi, Founder and General Superintendent of Deeper Christian Life Ministry.
According to the VP, a successful preacher of Christ should give the Pentecost tax. He further said that people who need to succeed in their endeavours owe the society three forms of taxes.
The VP explained that the first is income taxes (personal income tax), and corporation tax for company owners.
The second, he noted, is a social tax or philanthropy, which is the obligation of the wealthy to give back to society.
“The third tax is civic; the obligation of the successful to write their stories, to share the histories of the phenomena they have become.
“But for the successful preacher of the gospel of Jesus Christ, there is the fourth tax, this is the Pentecost Tax”, he said.
