Lagos cleric knocks El-Rufai over Islamisation comment
The founder of Christ for All Peoples Church, Ojoo, Lagos, Prophet Samuel Oyadara, has slammed the former Governor of Kaduna State, Malam Nasir El-Rufai, over his recent Islamization comment, saying governorship ticket in the state will be sustained for 20 years without being challenged.
The cleric who made this disclosure in a statement made available to journalists described a Muslim-Muslim governorship ticket as a sign of disunity, adding El-Rufai is trespassing by desecrating the body of Christ.
Prophet Oyadara stressed that the former governor should understand that nobody can Islamize Nigeria.
El-Rufai was caught on a viral video, speaking and mocking Christians.
The cleric stated that such a statement from the former governor amounts to going beyond his boundaries, saying that any attempt to Islamize the country will not work.
“A Muslim-Muslim governorship ticket is a sign of disunity. El-Rufai is going beyond his boundary by speaking and mocking the body of Christ. Let him know this, that nobody can Islamize Nigeria, it can’t work. If you stop Christians from taking part in government, you cannot stop them from praying and serving God,” he said.
The prophet also urged Nigerians to pray to God for deliverance for themselves and the country from what he described as the camp of the wicked, which holds the country to ransom, creates pain, hardship, famine, “and lots of problems for Nigeria.”
“Warning to Nigerians, pray that God should deliver us from the camp of the wicked that holds this country to ransom. The camp created pain, hardship, famine, and lots of problems for Nigeria.
“Nigerians, let’s continue to pray against the insurgents because there’s going to be a lot of attacks by Boko Haram in this new government. Mostly, Christians should not stop praying to God for safety against attacks from the wicked camp,” the clergyman said.
