The Senior Pastor and Founder of the Omega Fire Ministries International, Apostle Johnson Suleman, has berated the presidency for reacting swiftly to critics but keeping quiet over killings.
In a post on his Twitter handle, Apostle Suleman advised the Presidential spokesmen, Garba Shehu, and Femi Adesina, to respond to bandits and not critics “who speak truth to power.”
He wrote, “You are tempted to think we don’t have a leadership in Nigeria when people are being killed.
“They appear so helpless in the face of insurgency…But as soon someone speaks truth to power, their swift response and reactions amazes you. PLEASE, RESPOND TO BANDITS, NOT CRITICS.”
His tweet comes after the presidency condemned the Easter Sunday message of the Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Bishop Matthew Kukah.
Bishop Kukah in his Easter message to Nigerians on Sunday had attacked the Muhammadu Buhari administration.
He stated that Nigeria has become a massive killing field under the President’s watch as both government and the governed look on helplessly.
The popular cleric also accused Buhari’s government of rewarding bandits, adding that Nigeria’s current predicament reminded him of Israel’s situation that led to the death of Eli.
In a swift reaction, the presidency warned Kukah to stop dragging President Buhari’s name into issues that don’t concern him.
This is even as it noted that the clergyman is not speaking like a man of God based on some of his submissions.
