“There are a lot of medical consultants who are pastors and still practicing. He decided not to practice medicine, not that becoming a pastor will make him no longer a doctor. He should pay back the money for his training.”

Kayode, who is also a qualified accountant, had practiced in the Haberdashers’ Aske Public Schools for seven years prior to his arrest.
