Nonetheless, the surging popularity of the megachurches
Nonetheless, the surging popularity of the megachurches among the Christians who make up half of Nigeria's 170 million population has propelled their preachers into the ranks of the richest people in Africa.



In 2011, Forbes magazine estimated the fortunes of Nigeria's five richest pastors. Oyedepo topped the list, with an estimated net worth of $150 million.



He was followed by "Pastor Chris" Oyakhilome of Believers' LoveWorld Incorporated, also known as the nike air max uk Embassy and popular with executives and politicians, on $30 million to $50 million.



TB Joshua, pastor of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, at the centre of the recent diplomatic storm over the deaths in its guesthouse, was thought to have $10 million to $15 million.



The National Bureau of air max 1 trainers (NBS) declined to comment on how churches fit into their GDP figures, but a source there said they were included as "non-profit", which falls under "other services" in the latest figures. In 2013, the category contributed 2.5 percent of GDP, the same as the financial sector.



A former banker at Nigeria's United Bank for cheap air max 90, who declined to be named, recalled being approached five years ago by a church that was bringing in $5 million a week from contributions at cheap nike air max or abroad.
