Nigerians have taken to the social media to discuss Pastors across the globe even as many of those pastors hold their services on TV and online. At a visit to Twitter handle I observed the trend “Pastor” moving to the top of the trend.
Top Nigerian pastors are fully in compliance with Federal and State Government directives on the religious gathering. The Redeemed Christain Church of God that has 50% Christians in Nigeria hold a special Sunday Service at the Headquarter and transmitted across the world through TV, Radio and online.
The other pastors did the same thing transmitting their services to their members. The Trend handle “Pastor” has also enabled Pastors to advertise their mode of worship.
My State News observing the trend collated some of the tweets:

I’m not a Pastor yet I have a pulpit and charge no tithe. So churches don’t have half of the congregation on this handle. What would it matter if they gang up to declare me a heretic? Nothing! It simply validates mu mission to disrupt and fix our world where they have failed.

I’ve seen ppl dressed in their church attire, tuning into livestream masses/services, putting on their pastor gowns to preach, family prayer thru vidcalls, services at home etc. we are having a physical isolation but not a spiritual isolation. we don’t stop.
