The spokesperson of the president,  Muhammad Buhari, Femi Adeshina has disclosed why he stopped attending a branch of a church in Abuja. He disclosed that the pastor of the church was always attacking the President, Muhammadu Buhari.

Adesina disclosed this in an article on Thursday titled, ‘This Kumuyi is simply different’, which was written to support the statement by the General Superintendent of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry, Pastor William Kumuyi.

Although Adesina refused to mention the name of the church he stopped attending, but his public profile reveals that he is a member of the Foursquare Gospel Church which he has been attending since 1988, where he was ordained a pastor.

In the article, Adeshina said it was unfortunate that some pastors did not uphold the tenet of pastoral office and had turned their pulpit to a place where their hatred for anyone thry fid not like or approvef of is always expressed.

He wrote, “I used to attend a church in Abuja from 2015 to 2018, till the pastor began to see himself as someone who must bring the Buhari government down. Sunday after Sunday, it was all sorts of criticism from the pulpit. But I endured, since it was a branch of a church I had attended for over 30 years. Till one day, he overdid it.

“The Dapchi girls were abducted and there was no name the pastor did not call President Buhari that Sunday. It was horrendous that such things could come from the pulpit. But I suffered long and sat through the sermon, or rather, what was supposed to be a sermon. I then went home, wondering what the church of God was turning to.”

Adesina alleged that, although many of the Dapchi girls had been rescued, the pastor has refused to commend the President’s efforts in his service.

The President’s aide, however, praised Kumuyi for saying last week that Christians should not “disdain those in power because they appear not to be delivering on electoral pledges”.

He stated that while a former Vice-Chancellor of Ajayi Crowther University, Prof. Dapo Asaju, has his rights to be indignant over the state of the nation, it must be noted that the Buhari administration was doing his best to put things right.

Adesina notef that many pastors predicted that Buhari will lose 2019 general election. He said “Irrespective of the titles they bear, I hear bishops, apostles, prophets, pastors, evangelists, cursing the government, and issuing doomsday notices. One even said publicly that the Buhari administration was over, before the 2019 elections. But the man won handsomely, and that preacher still struts and frets on the pulpit every week, not repenting in sackcloth and ashes.”.

He further noted that during the #EndSARS protests of October 2020, some pastors declared their support openly for the youths who were protesting but they quickly recoiled into their shells when the protests got out of hand.

Adesina added, “Pastor Kumuyi also says if you are a true believer in Christ, you wouldn’t go on the rampage, destroying government property… But that was not what we saw in the country in October last year. The country was almost burned down under the subterfuge of EndSARS.

“And sadly, they were encouraged by pastors and preachers, who simply hate the fact that a Fulani man is their President. Many of them are on record as having encouraged the protesters, till things went ugly, turned awry. And the pastors vanished into the thin air. Not a word of caution or restraint as the cities were burning, and policemen were being killed, and even eaten up.”
