The President of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, Bishop Wale Oke, has said the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari ( retd) has failed woefully in providing security for Nigerians.
Oke, who is the presiding bishop of The Sword of the Spirit Ministries, Ibadan, called for the removal of Buhari in the message he delivered in the early hours of Saturday, May 1, 2021, at a vigil organised by his church.
The vigil was held at the Precious Cornerstone University Garden of Victory, Ibadan, Oyo State. The university is owned by the church.
The PFN president said Nigeria had become a war-ravaged country with killings going on daily across the land while the security agencies had become helpless.
Oke said, “The President should be removed if that would pave the way for the desired peace in the country.
“In the 1960s when Nigeria fought a civil war, the eastern part of the nation was the theatre of war.
“Sadly today, everywhere in Nigeria is a theater of war with much killings and bloodshed going on in the country every day.
”Some wicked people kidnapped some students and demanded N800m for their release; they killed them. The government did not lift a finger and you are telling me that the President has not failed. Buhari has failed.”
“For the first time, I have found myself praying that God should remove Buhari.
“They kidnapped students without the government doing anything and you are telling me that the government has not failed. Are you saying we cannot move against an incompetent government whose security apparatus has collapsed?”
The cleric accused the Buhari government of treating the killer herdsmen, who he said were terrorising many parts of the country with kid’ gloves.
He said the Fulani who were less than 10 per cent of the population of the country were being fingered in most of the killings across the country and the President did not do anything about it.
The bishop said further, “It is a shame that government could not protect those at the IDP camp which led to the massacre of a number of them in Benue State. The Presidency is now attacking Governor Samuel Ortom who was weeping over his people that were slaughtered.
“Give us peace by all means even if it means removing an incompetent and a failed President. Oh God, do it quickly and give us peace by all means. Give us a quick change at the top level of government of Nigeria.”
He invoked the wrath of God on the troublers of Nigeria and their sponsors in a congregational prayer he led.
