I am glad that Father Mbaka of the Catholic Church has finally seen the light and that he has denounced the Buhari regime.
This coming from a man that once supported the President vigorously,
even when members of his own flock and faith were being slaughtered,
marginalised and humiliated, is cheery news.
Yet there are still many more Church leaders that supported the
Buhari government, that sold their souls to the devil and that need to
follow Mbaka’s example and recant.
The great philosopher, writer and intellectual Mr. Dante Alighieri
once said that “the hottest place in hell is reserved for those who
maintain their neutrality at a time of moral crisis”.
To add to this it was our very own Professor Wole Soyinka, the
distinguished Nobel Laureate, that said “the man died in him who
remained silent in the face of tyrrany”.
I have no doubt in my mind that this is the time to speak out because
we are not only in a time of great moral crisis in our country but we
are also facing persecution and wholesale tyrrany.
I am making this contribution not out of fear for the plight of the
Christendom in Nigeria because I know that, as the Holy Bible says, “the
gates of hell cannot prevail against the Church”. It also says “He who
watches over Israel neither slumbers nor sleeps”.
It follows that no matter what the enemies of the gospel throw our
way, including one million President Buhari’s, at the end of the day we
I am making this contribution not out of fear or to divide our
nation but rather in an attempt to inform the Nigerian people and the
world about what is really going on in President Buhari’s Nigeria.
What many fail to appreciate is that the Church and the gospel of our
Lord Jesus Christ was built and spread by the blood and the bones of
the Christian martyrs.
It follows that the more you persecute, jail and kill Christians and
the more you subject them to terror, shame, insensitivity and
humiliation the more the Church grows.
Where the so-called “great” Christian leaders of Christendom with the
mega-Churches and the better known Pastors and Bishops in the land have
compromised with evil and have chosen to either side with the enemy or
remain silent when confronted with the tyrrany of the state, the Lord
will raise other voices to stand up for and speak for His people.
Nobody is indispensible to the Living God, no matter how large, rich
and powerful your Church is and no matter how many people you have in
Once you have betrayed the faith and joined hands with those that
seek to destroy the gospel and persecute Christians in our country you
are finished and your end has already been determined by God. It is just
a matter of time.
Yet thankfully there are some men and women of God that have refused
to be silenced, that have proved to the world that they are not cowards
and that have chosen to remain true to the faith.
These are the true believers who have not sold their heritage, faith
and future for a mess of pottage. These are the faithful remnant who
have refused to sit back silently and watch our Lord and His message
being crucified all over again. These are the true saints whose reward
is the Kingdom of God.
An example is Pastor Bright Bayo Oladeji, who is a journalist by
profession and a Baptist preacher by calling. On the 2nd August 2016 he
wrote the following on his Facebook page.
“Where are the Christians who sold the Church? The Islamic agenda is
being perfected. Professor Ishaq Oloyede, a prominent Islamic fanatic
who said he was not aware Christians are being attacked and killed is
now to head JAMB replacing Prof Ojerinde, a Baptist.
Four Muslims were not replaced but left to continue. Out of the 17
offices, 9 new replacement are Muslims and 4 retained are Muslims. 13
out of 17 are now Muslims. NUC, Muslim. JAMB, Muslim. TETCOM, Muslim.
Where are those Christian leaders who sold the Church for a plate of
porridge? Where are those telling us Professor Yemi Osinbajo would stand
for the Church being a Pastor?
Do they involve him in all these lopsided appointments in favour of
the North and Muslims or not? Do we have Christians among the APC
leaders? Does Odigie-Oyegun, the National Chairman of the ruling party
really belong to the Catholic church?
The fact that Buhari released these appointments the same day that
the PUNCH Newspaper published an editorial titled”Buhari’s parochial
appointments” (this is a paper that endorsed his candidacy) is a dirty
slap on the nation.
To say the least, it is a corruption with impunity. Many are afraid
to speak out and are being intimidated by the security operatives. Have
we become second class citizens in our own country?”
Pastor Bayo, as insightful and courageous as ever, has asked a pertinent question.
Sadly the answer to that question is “YES”: since Buhari came to
power Christians have become second class citizens in Nigeria. We warned
our people but they wouldn’t listen.
Nigerians said they wanted “change” and now they must live with it.
Every Christian that supported President Buhari and the APC, including
some of the most prominent Church leaders, should bow their heads in
As long as this evil continues we will not remain silent and neither
shall we be intimidated. No matter how hard they try Nigeria will NEVER
be Islamised and neither will our Christian faith be rubbished.
When Christians are treated with respect and dignity and when they
are honored in the land that is when we will know that true change has
When Yoruba Muslims are allowed to lead their northern counter-parts
in prayer in the mosque that is when we will know that true change has
When the secularity of the Nigerian state is reiterated and confirmed that is when we will know that true change has come.
When southerners are regarded as being on the same levell as
northerners in the affairs of our nation that is when we will know that
true change has come.
When the murderous Fulani herdsmen and militias are finally diasarmed
and when they stop slaughtering our people with impunity and without
any fear of retribution from the state that is when we will know that
true change has come.
When Christians are no longer murdered in cold blood in some parts of
the north simply for exercising their faith whilst the govetnment turns
a blind eye that is when we will know that true change has come.
When Christians leaders are no longer subjected to insults and brutal
assault by over- zealous security agents simply for praying and reading
the Holy Bible that is when we will know that true change has come.
When the Igbo people are not treated as pariah citizens and when
their children are no longer shot in the streets like stray dogs simply
because, as a people, they have their own dreams and aspirations and
simply because they are protesting against the manifest injustice that
they have been subjected to in the land, that is when we will know that
true change has come.
When Middle Belters and the northern minorities are allowed to carve
out their own identity and when they are freed from the intimidation,
harassment, hegemony, genocide, cultural imperialism and slavery of the
core Muslim north then we will know that true change has come.
Until then the change that the Buhari administration has offered and
served to the Nigerian people is nothing but fake. It is a classic case
of 419. It is evil. It is wicked. It is nothing but a monuemental fraud.
