He, also said that he had no idea that Valentine’s Day is around the corner, no to talk of linking “Lori Iro” with Valentine’s “I was not even aware that Valentine’s Day was approaching. However, my advice to people is that they should repent and retrace their steps back to God. A lot of things in the society have gone bad. Everything is now upside down. There is no truth or honesty anymore. People should start being truthful and honest.”
“Many women always approach me during evangelism preaching to ask questions in related to their relationship matter and on how to avoid being deceived by lies told by men”
