MFM bans females from wearing trousers, Catholic Church outlaws headgears

AS part of the war
against indecent
dressing to places of
worshop, female
members of the
Mountain of Fire
Ministries, MFM, have
been banned from
wearing trousers.
In different televised
live broadcasts, General
Overseer of MFM,
Pastor Daniel Olukoya
warned “females
wearing trousers and
not covering their
heads to this church is
not allowed. If you
cannot abide by this
rule please locate to
another parish where
such can be condoned.”
Lamenting the high
increase of ladies
wearing trousers to the
church, Olukoya
warned that the church
will no longer tolerate
any lady that does not
cover her hair or who
wears trousers into any
of the branches of the
church henceforth.

other church that
allows wearing of
Dr. Olukoya expressed
disgust over the
increase of ladies
wearing trousers to
church and warned
that the church will no
longer allow any lady
wearing trousers to
join the congregation
and those who refuse
to cover their heads,
adding that they have
the choice of obeying
the order or moving to
other churches where
they can do so.

God has also directed
all regional overseers
and assembly pastors
to enforce the rules.
The message has been
sent across to all the
branches of the church
nationwide. Not only

mandatory for all the
pastors in charge to
start enforcing the rule
to the letter.
In a similar
development, St.
Theresa’s Catholic
Cathedral, Nsukka,
Enugu State, has barred
women from wearing

administrator, Rev. Fr.
Uche Obodoechina,
who announced this in
Nsukka, said the

introduced to ensure

According to him, big
headgears, in most
cases, made the
identification of
persons during Sunday
service difficult, noting
that headgears
(popularly called
canopy) turn to a
“barricade” when
many women wear it
during service.
So, from September 9,
security men at the
church gate will start
to seize big headgears
and bags.
