In Lagos a couple of days ago, the chaplain of one Chapel of Christ the Light was removed, 24hours after the Governor’s wife stormed out of the church in anger.
Trust Nigerians, they started ranting that he is a man of God, that the Governor is acting like Pharaoh and that he reverse the decision and many more.
However, the chapel is being owned by the State Government. Implying that whoever is in the helm of the Government owns it, which in this case it happens to be Governor Ambode in person.
This could be likened to a business owned by someone. The owner is the decision maker. Gov. Ambode is the decision maker of that organization. He has all powers to do whatever he sees fit. Since that is the case, so many people will not see it in such perspective, because he is a man of God, people are clouded by such ideology.
Well even if the decision that was made to some extent might be wrong, maybe the Chaplain is right or the Governor’s wife is for attitude is wrong. Come to think of it, even in the scriptures people were punished for actions that was right or minor offenses that was committed which could have been easily overlooked.
Today people lose their position or jobs because of someone who is superior. I have seen a scenario whereby a senior colleague was threatening his junior about loosing his job if he does not threat him well.
So this type of situation occurs from time to time especially in the workplace, where people lose their job because the boss or the Ogas at the top misreads or sees an attitude from a different angle from what it really is, be it right or wrong. Remember the job was given to the chaplain showing that it could also be removed from him and that was what happened.
