It appears that if you're a preacher and don't have a private jet, you're considered impoverished these days. A significant number of pastors have private planes in their collections. Pastors from Nigeria account for the majority of these African pastors. Despite their image as Africa's colossus, they are still giants among private jet owners. We'd like to look at a list of all African preachers that own a private plane. One remarkable inclusion is a Malawian pastor who owns three private jets.
Having a private plane costs a lot of money. It's one thing to buy it, but getting the license, as well as landing and other expenses, may cost hundreds of thousands of dollars per year. So, in order to purchase a private jet, you must be quite wealthy. Take a look at the list of all African preachers with private jets. Are you ready for it?
1. Papa Ayo Oritsejafor — $3.4 million.
It will be necessary to introduce the individual himself. Papa Ayo, as he is fondly known, is a Nigerian evangelist who also happens to be a pilot. In fact, in 2009, he was involved in a controversy when the Nigerian government used his plane to load hard currencies in order to buy military weaponry in South Africa. He said the plane was a gift from his church members after the controversy over his private jet ownership.
2. Pastor Chris Oyakhilome — $1.2 million.
The curly-haired preacher is reportedly said to own two private planes that are parked in a Lagos airport hangar. His trips to South Africa and the United Kingdom are made much easier by one of the planes. The jets are each estimated to be valued at least $500 million each. A group of friends and members of his church gave him one of the planes. In the year 2017, this was purchased. Prior to that, he had purchased Sky Power, his own airline.
