The opening of an online dating platform for mature singles by the Redeemed Christian Church of God, the City of David Parish has stirred a lot of reactions on social media.
Naija News earlier reported that a senior pastor overseeing the parish, Idowu Iluyomade, disclosed in a forum that the platform would be launched.
Pastor Iluyomade while speaking at the forum called on single to interact and create an atmosphere that would allow them to make decisions for life partners.
He however said the people who connect have to do their due diligence.
When a single lady or young man registers on the site, the information would still have to be processed before approval.
The site has a disclaimer that reads in part, “Every registrant must conduct his or her own independent background check before connecting with another registrant on this platform. The Redeemed Christian Church of God, City of David Parish makes no representations or warranties and expressly disclaims any and all liability concerning any damages sustained by any registrant as a result of connecting with anyone on this platform”
Youthful Nigerians on social media expressed gladness, commending the pastor creating such a thoughtful idea for the singles and unmarried.
However, some were curious as to the type of interactivity that would be condoned on the site. Others questioned if non-members can participate in the registration.
