“Mr President advisers must be sincere, the statement credited to governor of CBN, that he wanted federal government to proscribe CAN and others, honestly is unfortunate, the man is becoming political governor of CBN.
“What he is saying is that Christianity should be proscribed, he should not be in the cabinet of Mr President, he is becoming more political than governor of CBN.
“Those who are holding sensitive position should not make such statement because is inciting, that is why the man gave money to people in Kano, when there was bomb blast, and nothing was given to people in Madalla until we cried out.
“It is an unfortunate statement, and I am warning him to stop insulting all Nigerian Christians, if he does not want the wrath of God. He is not a politician but a sharia expert”, the Methodist Prelate maintained.
