The Catholic priest in the video said the catholic church has a large number of worshippers, but unfortunately, the large number is not being used to effect needed changes in the country.
He maintained that the number that has not been put to use by the church has contributed to bad leaders being elected into positions in the country.
The priest insisted that only parishioners who have their PVCs shall enter the church building to join in the mass celebration.
In the video, parishioners who had their PVCs were to raise them up and show the priest who stood at the entrance door, before they could pass.
The Catholic priest action is coming one week after alleged Fulani herdsmen invaded, St. Francis Catholic Church, Owo, Ondo State, during Pentecost mass, and killed 50 worshippers.
