Cleric warns El-rufai again to reverse religious bill or die

06 April 2016, 14:09

Kaduna - Fiery preacher and Senior Pastor of Omega Fire Ministry, Apostle Johnson Suleman has once again warned Kaduna State governor, Nasir El Rufai to reverse his religious bill or die.

Suleman had in a recent message warned the governor not to pass the ‘license for preaching in Kaduna State’ into law or he would die.

But El Rufai in his response told the preacher to tell him the exact date of his death, bearing in mind that death is irrevocable.

In a latest video, the Auhi-born preacher, who described the governor as ‘Herod of Kaduna’ said he had no apology over his earlier prophecy.

“His days are numbered. It has started with slap, watch out for what will happen. I am not a rabble rouser, neither am I running my mouth. In the 1999 constitution, chapter four under the fundamental human rights, section 38; it says that: every one has the freedom of thoughts, conscience and opinion and they are very free to exercise their religion either in a community, in public or in private.In public means putting the speaker anywhere.

“That means he is going against the nation. He is going against the constitution. The Herod said he did it in Abuja and nothing happened. He entered a Christian community in Kaduna and demolished the place and nothing happened. If I be a man of God, the Herod of Kaduna will die,” he warned.

The governor had last month met with officials of the state branch of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) to seek their support on the new bill on modes of religious preaching.
