Video: Staking lotto is not a sin; God himself gives me the numbers – Obinim

Bishop Daniel Obinim

The controversial pastor is noted for giving out lottery numbers to members of his congregation on a regular basis.

However, his actions have often been criticised by the public and some of his colleague pastors.

Bishop Obinim, though, maintains that his decision to distribute lotto numbers is inspired by God.


Speaking in a recorded video, he said staking lotto is never a sin while challenging any preacher who believes otherwise to swear.

“Every pastor that has spoken against the staking of lotto must come out and curse themselves. I proclaim, that if it is not God who gave me the lotto numbers to give to my congregation, then He should kill me before Sunday,” Obinim said.

“God should destroy me [if I’m lying]. I will say it again; God gave me those lotto numbers.”

According to him, the instruction to give out the lotto numbers is Christ’s way of allowing others to have a fair share of the national cake.
