The General Overseer of the Omega Fire Ministries International, Apostle Johnson Suleman, has told the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to focus on the fight against insurgency and not critics.

Apostle Suleman gave the advice after the Presidency lambasted the Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Matthew Kukah over his 2021 Easter homily, saying it is an ungodly attempt to politicise the nation’s security.

Kukah, in his Easter message, had said the greatest tragedy of Buhari’s government is the death of empathy, adding that the government’s clay-footed fight against corruption had not moved the needle of transparency forward.

He said Nigeria, being the poverty capital of the world came with its rewards such as banditry, violence, death, sorrow, blood, poverty, misery, and tears.

Kukah also said Nigeria’s leaders would manufacture consent by creating imaginary enemies, setting citizens against one another by deploying religion, ethnicity, region, and other platforms while appealing to the base emotions of patriotism.

In response to Kukah’s message, the President’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu said the Catholic Archbishop of Sokoto Diocese, said things that were inexplicable.

According to the presidential aide, it is wrong for Kukah to have stated that ”the Boko Haram terrorism is worse than it was in 2015.”

Shehu also knocked Bishop Kukah, saying he didn’t speak like a man of God.

However, Apostle Suleman in his reaction on Monday said it baffles the mind how the presidency keeps mum when Nigerians are being killed but very swift when it’s time to respond to critics.

Apostle Suleman said: “You are tempted to think we don’t have leadership in Nigeria when people are been killed.
They appear so helpless in the face of the insurgency. But as soon someone speaks truth to power, their swift response and reactions amaze you. PLEASE, RESPOND TO BANDITS, NOT CRITICS.”


  1. This 419 is also talking as if he does anything except duping innocent People.
    Shut up! What do you know?
    I really hate hearing or seeing what you say. It is nonsense. Nothing good is you.
    Come out and contest. It is the easiest ay to be relevant.
    Some of you thinks that the only way to be popular is to talk bad of government.
    Yet in small group you are preaching fake news, you care not.

  2. A bad product is not marketable no matter the advert. Garba and Adeshina can apply insulting responses but the facts are on the ground. Every part of the country and the people know that the security situation today is worse than 2015. To those criticising Bishop Kukah, they are the enemies of the people. The stand on hypocrisy and deceitfulness and the masses prayers against their evils will be by God
