I'll only keep quiet when the killings in Nigeria stops - Apostle Suleiman

- Apostle Johnson Suleman was recently cautioned over his persistent and unrelenting criticism of the Buhari-led government

- The words of advise was given by a his biological dad, who is also a politician and businessman, Honourable Imoudu Sule

- Sule advised the preacher to focus more on his apostolic work rather than dabbling into politics

The president and founder of Omega Fire Ministries, Apostle Johnson Suleiman has responded to the counsel of his biological father not to criticize President Muhammadu Buhari and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Speaking to Vanguard on the issue, the younger Suleiman reiterated that, the Buhari led administration should take the issue of the security of lives and property of Nigerians seriously.

His words: “My father is my number one hero in this life and I respect him so much; hence I would never hurt his feelings over any sort of domestic or public matters.

“Ordinarily speaking, I wouldn't have responded to my father's press statements; based on my cultural upbringing that prohibits children from reacting to parental chastening, but rather accept the wisdom that comes out of such actions

“But let me state that, I have never been interested in any form of political activities or happenings all my life; neither do I belong to any political party/association. I am an ardent crusader for equity and justice for all.”

The fiery preacher warned those who are bent creating problems in his private life all in the name of politics to get busy with more productive issues.

He said: “Being a preacher and a defender of the gospel of Jesus Christ for many years, I find it hard to keep mute and pretend, or even look away while Christians and innocent people of other faith are being massacred at random. Its against my belief.

“Hence, I have consistently cried out to the government for quick intervention. My simple offence is that I speak against the activities of herdsmen who kill Christians and defenceless Nigerians at will and get away with it. While no government body or security agency seem to be doing or saying anything about it.

“I reiterate my position today, that I shall not stop talking about it, calling on the government to rise to its responsibility of protecting lives and property of the Nigerian people. Neither will I stop condemning the state of insecurity in Nigeria and the unabated spate of killings of innocent citizens of our land by those who are ordinarily supposed to have been criminalized, proscribed and prosecuted by now.

“I have never been against any government let alone the APC government. But I urge the president and his cabinet to do the needful in curbing the high rate of insecurity ravaging our country. Mr. President should also rise up and do justice to all Nigerians; irrespective of the people's socio-political, ethnic or religious affiliations. Let the killing of Christians stop and will keep quiet.”

Honourable Imoudu Sule, who is the current APC leader in Auchi as well as the APC deputy leader, Etsako West in Edo state in a recent media chat with select journalists in Lagos, said he took the decision to speak out publicly against the backdrop of the preacher's persistent and unrelenting criticism of the Buhari-led APC government.

While acknowledging and openly confessing his passionate love for Apostle Suleman, Honourable Sule, however, advised the preacher to concentrate more on his apostolic calling rather than dabbling into politics.
