The Dr. Daniel Olukoya Daniel led Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries (MFM) has banned female worshippers from wearing trousers to Prayer City along Lagos/ibadan expressway. Information available to ENCOMIUM Weekly revealed that the enforcement began effectively in May 2014. According to our source, although the church stance on wearing of trousers had been stated from the outset of the ministry, few worshippers still flout these rules, especially during their Power Must Change Hands programme every first Saturday of the month.
However, we reliably gathered that the ministry began total enforcement of the rule in May. This was not unconnected to the fact that some people felt the church was not serious about the teaching and began to flout the rules. We learnt it’s now a taboo to come to the ministry during worship in trousers.
According to our source, the security officials have been empowered to scrutinise worshippers who ignore of the rules and disallow them until they comply.
On Friday, June 6, 2014, we contacted the ministry’s spokesman who confirmed it. “Yes, it’s true, but it’s been long.”

On Monday, June 9, 2014, we spoke with one of the female worshippers at the ministry’s headquarters, Gift Orji and she confirmed the development but shed light on it.
“Yes, it is true. Not only trousers but short gowns and mini-skirts. What they do is if you put on one of these things, they will give you a wrapper to cover your laps.”
Another female worshipper who pleaded anonymity revealed that the law came into being when some female worshippers began to cause distraction with their skimpy attires. “And you now the ministry is a deliverance arena.”
