Over 26,000 people sign counter-petition in favor of popular preacher



In just four days, over 26,000 people sign counter-petition in favor of Rev Funke Felix Adejumo.

Reacting to the criticism online and the petitions against the female cleric » to stop her from going abroad, five people launched counter petitions on change.org.

The first one was started by Temi Chris-Kuye on July 23, 2018, who wrote:
"Call to ban Funke Felix Adejumo is a direct attack on Christianity. Unfounded malicious, defamatory and slanderous accusations are not lawful. 

Discrimination against a specific religious leader and denomination of a faith is indeed unjust and a prejudicial treatment.

"Article 9 of the Human Rights Act expressly states the freedom of thought, conscience, and religion. Funke Felix Adejumo is a Christian woman who has dedicated her life to serving humanity- she has built orphanages, Children's hospital and shelter homes for women fleeing domestic violence."

It reportedly got over 10, 000 signatures within 24 hours. Today, 24,972 have signed!

This was followed by another one by Uto Udoh two days later. Udoh wrote:
"Crucify him!!!" the overwhelming voice of false accusers banded with one voice resounded until Pilate was forced to crucify Jesus. Now they want to crucify Reverend Funke Felix Adejumo.

"These malicious accusations are not singly aimed at Rev Funke but this is a strategic persecution against the body of Christ. Funke Felix Adejumo, a Christian woman dedicated to serving humanity- feeds over 500 widows, placed more than 50 students on scholarship, she has built orphanages, Children's hospital and shelter homes for women fleeing domestic violence. I stand with Reverend Funke. I stand with the body of Christ."

It has gotten 1,358 signatures.

So far, over 26,000 people and counting have signed the five existing counter-petitions in support of popular preacher on the site.

While the support for Rev Adejumo » seems to be growing, the same can not be said for the petitions against her.

Despite the fact that the first petition was launched a week ago, it has been signed by only 6,183 people.

The second is by Daniel Audu, who wrote: "We are determined to stop the extortion and money laundering going on in the united states by fraudulent Nigerian pastor Rev Funke Felix Adejumo. She hides under the pretext of being a woman of God and extort money from gullible unsuspecting members in different Nigerian churches across the United States.

"We have reason to believe this woman is laundering money from the United States under the pretext of a church. This is an illegal money laundry channel and we need to regulate or stop this extortion. Unregulated criminalities like these have made Nigeria the world poverty capital."

This has been signed by just 1,053 people.

The third one, which was started to stop the cleric from entering the EU to defraud people and the country, has gotten only 252 signatures.
