Cleric urges Nigerians to shun acts capable of truncating democracy
Nigerians have been urged to shun any act capable of truncating the nation’s democracy, and that any attempt to topple the Government of President Muhammadu Bubari would not be tolerated under any guise.
The call was made in Lagos by Supreme Head of the Cherubim & Seraphim Unification Church of Nigeria, His Most Eminence Solomon Alao, in a release made available to newsmen.
Alao was apparently reacting to alleged attempt by some sections in the Nigerian Army to truncate the current democratic experience ostensibly on account t of the ill-health of the President who is currently on medical follow-up in London.
Rather, Alao advised religious leaders and all Nigerians to continue to pray for quick recovery of the president and also pray for Acting President Yemi Osinbajo to be guided the wisdom of God while he stirs the affairs of the state in the absence of his boss.
“The rumoured attempt by some soldiers to do the unthinkable in this day and time in Nigeria will not be tolerated, but will be massively resisted. Nigerians cannot be taken for a ride any longer. We urged the Army authorities to remain committed to the ideals of democracy and shun any act capable of dragging the nation backwards.”
