Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, says he quit attending church service at a branch in Abuja because the pastor was always blasting the President.
In an article titled, ‘This Kumuyi is simply different’, and written in praise of a statement made by the General Superintendent of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry, Pastor William Kumuyi, Adesina said it was unfortunate that some pastors had turned their pulpits to soapboxes upon which they spew hatred.
He wrote, “I used to attend a church in Abuja from 2015 to 2018, till the pastor began to see himself as someone who must bring the Buhari government down. Sunday after Sunday, it was all sorts of criticism from the pulpit. But I endured, since it was a branch of a church I had attended for over 30 years. Till one day, he overdid it.
“The Dapchi girls were abducted and there was no name the pastor did not call President Buhari that Sunday. It was horrendous that such things could come from the pulpit. But I suffered long and sat through the sermon, or rather, what was supposed to be a sermon. I then went home, wondering what the church of God was turning to.”
