A clergyman has been captured on camera rejecting N25 million gift from Cross River state Governor, Ben Ayade to his church.

In a video making rounds, the governor who was present at the church announced that he would be donating a sum of N25 million to the church.

Governor Ayade said; "On behalf of the people of the state, the state government, my family, the Chief Justice of Nigeria, and the entire judiciary, we have collectively come together to make a donation of N25 million."

Moments after, the Bishop took to the stage and rejected his gift. He took hold of the microphone and then asked the Governor to use whatever he wanted to gift him to pay salaries.

"I want to thank my amiable Governor. He is my brother. We are from the same part of the state. We will whisper to him later, whatever he wants to give to me, let him put that package together and pay salaries," the clergyman said as the congregation cheered.
