Ekiti state governor, Ayodele Fayose has warned Buhari'st administration to desist from ridiculing church leaders and tampering with the administration of churches.
The governor who was absolutely livid further stated that God would rubbish this administration if they continued to interfere with the administration of churches.
The outspoken governor stated this in reaction to the law which forced the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor E.A Adeboye to step down as General Overseer of the church in Nigeria.
Governor Fayose said;
"There is one thing every government must not do, the moment you face the church of God, you will fail. The God of Adeboye, Kumuyi will bring down all the enemies in this government. Somebody must tell them, there are certain things you don’t do. They are going from frying pan to fire".
"This government wants to subdue the church, God will subdue them. They are ridiculing leaders of the church, God will rubbish them. The same church they had deceived to get power, they are saying that we now have the ring, who will remove it from our hand, the Lord will cut off the hand that wears the ring".
"The APC is behaving in this way, but God is the creator of the ring and the hand, God will amputate the hand. Ayo Fayose is anointed of God. I have warned and I’m still warning, take your hands away from the administration of churches, you are killing Christians and the Lord will rise against you. By rising against the church, this government has failed as anyone that rises against God will fail. By using laws against the church, they have started to crumble".
The governor also talked about the killing of Christians in Southern Kaduna, adding that such act must be condemned.
"Christians are being slaughtered in Southern Kaduna and noblemen cannot talk because of fear of incarceration. Remember you are here today, tomorrow you would not be here again. We must condemn what is happening here today".
Governor Fayose also cautioned the FG on the further implementation of the ‘Financial Regulation Council (FRC)’ act which directs all heads of churches, civil society organizations and mosques to step down after 20 years in charge.
Pastor E.A Adeboye who was forced to step down as the General Overseer of RCCG Nigeria has chosen Pastor Joshua Obayemi as his replacement. However, he will remain as General Overseer of the church worldwide.
