Pastor condemns valentine’s day celebration


The Pastor of Praise Assembly, Tanke, Ilorin, Pastor Ezekiel Aremu, has impelled Nigerians to engage in serious prayers rather than unrestrained celebration of Valentine’s Day on Wednesday.

Aremu gave the advice in an interview with newsmen in Ilorin on Tuesday.

He described Valentine’s Day as an annual festival set aside to celebrate love, friendship and admiration of special people.

According to Aremu, Nigerians must not be carried away by the celebration.

“Instead, Nigerians should seek for God’s intervention on the state of the nation.

“This is not the time to over celebrate; we all know it is Valentine’s Day, when gifts are exchanged and love expressed to special people in our lives.

“It is expected to be low key celebration with  Nigerians  praying  for the good of the nation.

“Merrymaking is not the answer, rather prayer is the answer,’’ he said.

The cleric advised Nigerians to demonstrate the spirit of giving to the people around them by giving  out gifts.

He described St Valentine as a philanthropist and a symbol of love worth emulating.

“St. Valentine is an embodiment of love and deserves  to emulate.

“The rich should give to the poor and the poor should also stretch to people below them,’’ said the cleric.
