The General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries International, Apostle Johnson Suleman has reacted to Obasanjo’s open letter to President Muhammadu Buhari where he (Apostle Suleman) maintained that the former President Obasanjo spoke the minds of Nigerians.
Eye 9ja reports that Apostle Suleman said this while reacting to Obasanjo’s open letter to Buhari, where he (Obasanjo) accused Buhari of not doing enough to end the insecurity atters in the country.
Apostle Suleman in his reply to the Obasanjo’s open letter, cautioned that Nigeria was sitting on a keg of gunpowder; he said urgent steps must be taken to avert the looming crisis in the country.
Eye 9ja understands that the General Overseer spoke on Monday during his visit to the Benue state governor, Samuel Ortom in Makurdi, the Benue State capital.
Apostle Suleman said all was not well with the country and there was urgent need to have the challenges tackled headlong.
He said, “In Obasanjo’s letter, I did not see what he wrote there that has not been happening. People must draw a line between politics and reality. He spoke the mind of Nigerians and should not be castigated.
“I learnt some people are calling for his arrest, but before anybody arrests Obasanjo they should first arrest those who threatened the government by issuing a 30 days ultimatum to the government over the suspension of the Ruga settlement plan.”
Apostle Suleman commended Governor Ortom for choosing to defend his people at the peak of the herdsmen crisis in the state.
“Many leaders would prefer to defend their seats and positions at the expense of their people in such situations, the path Governor Ortom took was capable of costing him his second term election but he never bothered.”
While responding, Governor Ortom commended Apostle Suleman for supporting the state through prayers and his N5million cash donation for the upkeep of Internally Displaced Persons in the state. The Governor described him as a true friend of the state.
“Benue would not accept open grazing, grazing reserves, Ruga or whatever because they are all in conflict with our Open Grazing Prohibition and Ranches Establishment Law,” he warned.
