- Owning a private jet is no big deal
- "I have people I’ve trained who are sons of mine who have private jets in Nigeria and owning a jet is not a problem," he said in an interview
General Overseer of the Action Chapel Ministries, Archbishop Nicholas Duncan Williams, believes there is nothing wrong with having a man of God own a private jet.
In his view, the problem should rather lie with how you generate the money to buy the private jet, insisting if it is genuine then there is nothing wrong.
A number of pastors and close friends of the Archbishop are known to own private jets which they use when travelling for their assignments.

The likes of Bishop David Ayedepo and Prophet Shepherd Bushuri are just a few men of God from Africa who all own private jets.
However, Archbishop Duncan-Williams is not too enthused about owning one.
“I have people I’ve trained who are sons of mine who have private jets in Nigeria and owning a jet is not a problem,” he said on the Starr Chat show Wednesday with Bola Ray on Starr FM.
“It’s not about affording it, apart from it being a gift, there are some networks in America where you can be part of some arrangement where you can have a jet at your disposal, maybe 10 or 12 times in a year and you pay some fee and maintain it and everything.”
The Archbishop, though, believes maintaining a private jet in this part of world could prove a difficult task, especially looking at the economic situation of most African countries.
According to him, “it’s going to take a lot of innovative thinking because the maintenance is more expensive.”
