Worshipers at The Experience in the early hours of Saturday booed the Lagos state governor while delivering a goodwill message to the global concert hosted by House on the Rock church in Lagos.
Lagos state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, was represented by his Commissioner for Budget and Economic Planning, Samuel Egube.
“We choose to turn to light, to peace and righteousness,” Mr Egube had sought to admonish the audience from the Holy Bible, he was however not allowed to settle into his speech before shouts of contempt reverberated across the congregation.
Mr Egube incoherently fast-tracked the delivery of his message and left the podium hurriedly.
Convener of the concert, Paul Adefarasin, senior pastor of the House on the Rock church, however cautioned the crowd saying that booing political leaders is unscriptural.
“The behaviour tonight is unscriptural. The Bible says, do all things without murmuring and complaining,” Mr Adefarasin said.
Mr Adefarasin asked the people to pray for political leaders instead of booing them.
“The scripture enjoins us to pray for our leaders and those in authority. This behaviour is not scriptural and I must honestly caution us,” Mr Adefarasin added.
