Veronica Anyim, the lady accused of lying after testifying about being a “BSc graduate of law” from the National Open University of Nigeria, NOUN on Monday, met the Senior Pastor of Dunamis International Gospel Center, Dr Paul Enenche and his wife, Becky Enenche.

Anyim, who claimed during a Sunday live service that she graduated from NOUN after ten years of studying Law, was accused by Pastor Enenche of lying.

A video clip making the rounds on social media revealed how the senior pastor interrupted her testimony, saying she lied by claiming she had a BSc in law.

The Internet has been flooded with reactions from concerned Nigerians who asked the pastor to tender apology to Vera.

The church has since apologized, saying the development was not intentional.

Shortly after the apology emerged, Vera took to her Facebook page to share photos of herself, Pastor Enenche and his wife.

Vera said she has no grudges against the pastor and the church, stressing that she remains committed to “serving God as a member of Dunamis church”.

The post reads, “I want to inform the whole world that I just had a warm meeting with my spiritual father and mother dr Paul Enenche and dr Becky Enenche.

Pastor Paul Enenche breaks silence, apologises to lady accused of fake testimony

Pastor Enenche breaks silence, apologises to lady accused of fake testimony
Testifier, Anyim Veronica and Pastor Paul Enenche of Dunamis

Paul Enenche, the senior pastor of the Dunamis International Gospel Centre, has broken silence over the recent incident involving a lady who testified that she was a law graduate from the Open University of Nigeria (NOUN).

The pastor clarified that he did not intend to embarrass the testifier, Anyim Veronica , when he interrupted her during her testimony on Sunday.

In a video that went viral on Sunday, April 14, the member mounted the pulpit to testify of about her successful graduation with a “Bachelor of Law” degree from the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) on Saturday, April 13.

While she was sharing her testimony, she was interrupted by Enenche, who openly declared that “there’s no such degree as a BSc in law”, casting doubt on the authenticity of her testimony.

The issue went viral on social media as Nigerians demanded Enenche to apologise.

In his response, Enenche said his actions were motivated by his and the church’s dislike of seeming dishonesty or mediocrity.

Sylvester Edoh, the Personal Assistant to Pastor Enenche Enenche, also noted that the church had reached out to Vera personally.

A statement signed by Edoh reads: “A scenario was created on Sunday the 14th of April 2024 at the Glory Dome, the Global Headquarters of Dunamis International Gospel Centre, when Ms Anyim Veronica Nnenna came out to testify of how God helped her graduate from the University, thus making her the first person to attain that feat in her family.

“These were the immediate triggers for the said scenario: First, listening to the testifier’s expressions as it borders on basic spoken English, conveys the impression that the minimum standard expectation of a graduate, especially a graduate of Law was not met. Second, stating that she studied Law for 10 years begged the question of what her degree actually was.

“Third, she was unable to state exactly what the correct degree was for Law which is LLB, rather she said it was a BSc in Law which is largely unknown as a Law degree in Nigeria and possibly globally. These prompted the Senior Pastor, Dr. Paul Enenche to stop the testimony immediately as a product of a “lie.

“However, relief came when it was later confirmed that she actually graduated from a university. It must be pointed out clearly here that embarrassing the testifier publicly with the attendant media frenzy was never intended; whatever happened was under the spur of the moment.

“The action of the Senior Pastor was rather based on his and the church’s aversion to seeming mediocrity and any appearance of untruth.

“While we remain resolute in our passion for excellence and intolerance of mediocrity and falsehood, we wish to reiterate the fact that no harm or hurt was ever intended by the Senior Pastor against Ms. Anyim Veronica.

“The Senior Pastor feels deeply concerned and has already reached out to her. As a Commission, we regret every inconvenience, hurt and embarrassment this unfortunate scenario has caused to Ms Anyim Veronica Nnenna.”

Kumuyi charges Christians to use offerings to feed the poor, unemployed

Published

Kumuyi

Doctor William Folohunso Kumuyi, General Superintendent of the Deeper Life Bible Church, has advised Christians not to give their contributions to the church but rather to the destitute and unemployed in their community.

Kumuyi, who made the statement in a viral video, was heard urging his church audience that Christians should not spend all of their money on church construction but rather aid their needy neighbours who cannot buy basic necessities.

Kumuyi recounted how a preacher directed his congregation to donate money to the destitute and unemployed in their community.

Kumuyi stated that when building the church, Christians should remember their neighbours who are dying of famine.

He said, “Look at all this offering we’re collecting; this church has silver and gold. I learned of a preacher somewhere who was having their church service. And he said, Now we’re going to collect the offering. If you have 10,000, N20,000, or N50,000, raise your hand, and they will be faithful.

“Then he stood up and said that N10,000, 20,000, and N50,000 go to the poor in your community. All the offering is not just church; there are poor, unemployed people around. There are indigent people around. We will build ours, but while you’re building, your neighbours are dying.

“Your neighbour, who does not have anything, your sisters, and your brother have nothing to send their children to school. We built DLICC (Deeper Life International Conference Centre) with all the offerings we could build. And we can now be at ease and allow our members to die of hunger and to be destroyed because they have nothing and we have the money.

“And what if this church, like we used to do in the olden days, in the good old days, reserved some amount of money for charity? We allocate some amount of money for building DLICC and the district church, and the people we’re building for are dying of hunger, malnutrition, and starvation.

“Let’s budget part of the money—millions of our currency—to take care of the people. Which one comes first when your house is leaking and your mother is dying? How will you spend it—mending the leaking room or taking care of your mother?

“We should give priority to members of our church, even those who are not members. We know them, and we can contact them.

“We should not spend all our money on the building of a church that will not be raptured when Christ comes, because Christ is coming,” Kumuyi noted.
