Man pays N42m tithe to Benue church

A man whose identity has been shielded by a local church in Makurdi, has shocked church members with a tithe offering of N42m.

Investigations by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) revealed that the money was paid into the UBA account of the NKST Church High Level Makurdi.

Although the pastor of the church, Dr. Frederick Ikyaan, initially denied knowledge of the offering, a copy of the church’s quarterly financial report, covering the months of January – March, confirmed the payment of N42million tithe to the church.

The report showed that the lodgement was the highest single offering from an individual for the quarter. The money was paid into the church’s account in January.

The breakdown of the church’s financial report showed an income of N56.2m and an expenditure of N33.7m within the same time frame.

The church’s records also showed that out of the income, N44.6m was generated from tithe offerings while a single person accounted for N42m.

Reacting to the financial report, the pastor said his initial denial was based on the allegations that the donor was an appointee of the Benue government.

”I still stand by my words that the person that gave us that money is not an appointee of the state government. In fact, he does not even stay in Benue but is an indigene of the state.”

He said there was nothing wrong with the offering and insisted that the church had nothing to hide. Meanwhile, the tithe offering has stirred controversy in a state struggling to pay the salaries of workers.

Public discussion centred on the legitimacy of the donors income, as a man who pays N42m to a church as tithe must have made an income of N420m in the month that he paid.

The NKST Church is an abbreviation for ‘Non go Kristu U Sudan hen Tiv’, meaning the Church of Christ Amongst the Tiv
