The Lagos state governor was booed by worshipers at The Experience in the early hours of Saturday while giving a goodwill message to the global concert sponsored by House on the Rock church in Lagos.

Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the Lagos state governor, was represented by Samuel Egube, his Commissioner for Budget and Economic Planning.

Mr Egube had endeavoured to admonish the audience from the Holy Bible, “We chose to turn to light, to peace, and to righteousness,” but he was not allowed to finish his address before yells of scorn resonated throughout the church.

Mr. Egube hurriedly exited the podium after delivering his speech incoherently.

The concert’s organizer, Paul Adefarasin, senior pastor of the House on the Rock church, advised the audience, stressing that booing politicians is against the Bible.

“Tonight’s behavior is unscriptural.” “Do everything without moaning or complaining,” Mr Adefarasin urged, quoting the Bible.

Instead of booing politicians, Mr Adefarasin urged the crowd to pray for them.

“The Bible commands us to pray for our leaders and those in positions of authority. Mr Adefarasin continued, “This behavior is not scriptural, and I must honestly caution us.”
