Pastor Tobi Adegboyega leads women on empowerment walk to UK prime minister’s office

SPAC Nation pastor Tobi Adegboyega

UK-based Nigerian pastor Tobi Adegboyega on Sunday led several women on an empowerment walk to 10 Downing Street, the British prime minister’s office.

The walk was to demand female equality in all spheres of human endeavour.

Adegboyega and wife Lucy led the women after service at their church known as Salvation Proclaimer Ministries aka SPAC Nation.

Prior to this, the clergyman led men in suit on what he termed “freedom walk” on the streets of London in preparation for the empowerment walk with women.

In a social media post, Adegboyega, who has faced criticism over his lifestyle and the church’s finances, asked members of the public to judge if his church was relevant or not.

He wrote, “Leading ladies and girls! Today was the ladies’ walk. Today, myself, Lucy and the female leaders led a female march to No.10.

“We marched to submit a petition for the girl child’s equality. Some of the men also came to support.

“We once again demonstrated our street power. This was thousands of ladies that followed us there in real time, all young, mostly black, successful ladies.

“We have evolved. You can judge for yourself if we are relevant to the community and the nation or not.”

Adegboyega pointed out that the church did not engage any influencer to promote the walk nor made public announcement towards it.

He also berated the police, saying: “The police are always working hard wherever black people are concerned.”
