In a video presentation, the pastor and business man popularly known as Prophet Obotuo said these men of God leave experienced pastors who have been with them since the start of their ministry to give their church management, leadership and pastorship to their children as if it were a family business.

According to Prophet Botuo, the practice is prevalent in the so called ‘One man churches’ where individuals start the church but it’s never the case with mission churches and a few Pentecostal churches like the Church of Pentecost.
