Jonathan, PDP, fuelling ethno-religious tension in Nigeria – Fayemi

Minister of Solid Minerals, Kayode Fayemi

The immediate former governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi, has accused President Goodluck Jonathan of stoking ethno-religious tension in Nigeria for political gains ahead of the 2015 elections.

Speaking in Lagos Tuesday, Mr. Fayemi said the president and the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, are deliberately encouraging sentiments that divide Nigerians along ethnic and religious lines, as a political strategy ahead of next year’s crucial polls.

He said Mr. Jonathan “stage-manages” visits to influential religious leaders to exploit their popularity for his political gain.

“It is becoming increasingly clear that one of the do-or-die strategies of the ruling party to retain power in 2015 is to compensate for poor performance in office by stoking ethno-religious sentiments and pushing the country to the brink of crisis,” Mr. Fayemi said at GLEEHD Foundation’s Election ThinkTank Series in Lagos.

“This can be deciphered from the ethnic jingoists who brazenly threaten fire and brimstone if President Jonathan is not returned in 2015, as well as the predilection of our president to stage-manage visits to influential spiritual leaders and exploit their goodwill to masquerade as the anointed candidate of people of a particular faith,” the former governor said.

Mr. Fayemi lambasted the federal government’s “feeble response” to the insurgency in the north-east, and wondered why the same government deployed huge number of troops to militarise elections in his state.
Mr. Fayemi canvassed support for any presidential candidate with the most convincing manifesto for achieving sustainable peace.

“There is no gainsaying that we are going into the 2015 elections a deeply divided people, with the elections itself being a potential source of further polarisation.

“It is (for) this reason that has seen increased advocacy particularly by renowned civil society actors to force ‘peace and national cohesion’ to the top of the agenda as the single most important factor in determining who the next president of Nigeria should be,” he said.

The former governor described Nigerians as a religious society difficult to comprehend.

“This is a reality that we can all affirm anecdotally but which is absolutely empirically verifiable,” said Mr. Fayemi.

“Consider some facts and figures. There are more Anglicans in Nigeria than there are in England, the denomination’s mother country, or anywhere else in the world.

“The largest Roman Catholic seminary in the world is the Bigard Memorial in Enugu which has about 1,000 students – five times the number enrolled in the largest U.S. Catholic seminary. No other seminary matches this prodigious intake.

“The Living Faith Church possesses the largest church auditorium in the world, the 50,400-seat Faith Tabernacle in Lagos.

“The Deeper Life Bible Church’s headquarters congregation in Lagos had 150,000 members as at 2004 and had planted more than 6,000 branches across Nigeria. In Nigeria alone, the Redeemed Christian Church of God claims 14,000 branches with 5 million members.”

Mr. Fayemi said that despite Nigeria’s potential emergence as a hub for global Christianity, the nation still suffers from endemic corruption.

“We are beset by a host of plagues: hunger, chronic conflict, terrorism, disease, corruption and various portents of weak statehood,” Mr. Fayemi said.

“Official graft is particularly endemic. Conservative estimates indicate that between $4 billion and $8 billion is stolen from public coffers annually.”

According to the former governor, the nation’s landscape has continued to be marked by institutional dysfunction and infrastructural dilapidation.

He also noted that the despite the proliferation of churches and mosques in the country, public morality continues to decline.

“All of us here bear the burdens of working and producing without basic infrastructure such as power supply or of securing our families given the weakness of the formal security apparatus,” said Mr. Fayemi.

“Churches are proliferating in the midst of social and moral squalor. Nigerian Christians live in a bipolar reality.

“The same can be said of Islam and its phenomenal growth in the country over the years. As Nigerians, we share in a common social experience marked by decadence, while we also function as people of faith in the controlled environments provided in our churches.

“In effect, the values and virtues imparted by our faith are hermetically sealed off from social reality. Consequently, the society persists in its ethical freefall despite what appears to be an ongoing religious revival.”

    Well-said!

  • Ken

    This man has not said anything. How is Jonathan dividing the country in ethno-religious ways? GEJ is popular among the people save those who are not ready for transformation.

    • Wähala

      To an imbecile like you maybe, but to erudite minds he has said it all. Did Dumbo not send Asari to insult Northern Muslims even though he himself claims to be a Muslim? Dumbo’s Administration coined words like, “Yoruba Christians” and “Youruba Muslims”. Miscreants like you are the problem, you rush to comment even when it’s obvious you’ve not read the article. Edyiots on crumbs. Aborigine drunkards, your days are numbered. Baztard!

      • Ken

        Your comments are very wrong and unfortunate. After reading Fayemi, in what ways has Jonathan fuelled the religious divisions? I have never heard Jonathan referred to any group as Yoruba Christians or any other. Let us be fair with our comments. It is Muslims that have really divided this country. Look at the National assembly (NASS) building with a dome on top, it was built by a muslim leader. There was no Church for Christians in Aso Rock until Obasanjo got there. IBB dragged Nigeria into OIC and many others. as we talk today, you can’t build a church any how in some northern towns like Kano, Maiduguri, Sokoto and many others; but you can erect a mosque any where in the south. The North wants to implement sharia in a secular country like Nigeria. Let fayemi face all these things. Wake up, these are the dividing issues!

        • Wähala

          Dumbo does not have to say those things for a mature mind to know he’s behind them. Who sponsored the fake pastor that made the offensive video a Redeem Pastor was distributing until Adeboye called him to order? In the 38yrs of a Muslim led, do you remember seeing a picture of Shagari, Idiagbon/Buhari, IBB, Abacha or Abdulsalam, banging their heads on the floor of any Mosques in front of any Imams? Sharia Law has been with us without forced adherence or violent terrorism due to it. Dumbo is an ethnic jingoist and a sadistic psychopath. My disappointment with Fayemi is that he didn’t say these things as Gov. when it would have carried more leverage, they only talk from the sidelines of power.

            Shut up, this wahala man. This space should be used decently and not to be abused because of the innate advocacy for your Muslim Brotherhood in Nigeria vis-a-vis unmasked hatred for the person of Dr Goodluck Jonathan who you and your demented cohorts have decided to nickname Dumbo. In all the nearly 39 years of northern dominated rule, no southerner has dared dubbed those leaders as such, in spite of the obvious misrule, blatant stealing of state resources, state sponsored assassinations and mismanagement. For instance, even when we know that the late Yar’adua was a chain smoker and a drunkard and always appearing sickly, we in the south did not dub him as such. I have taken the pains to read some of your posts, however callous they appear and quite frankly you sound intellectually okay but beneath that there is this deep and uncanny hatred for the person of Dr Goodluck Jonathan.

          • endingNaija

            peter na otile na oleku na temmie you are the one that must shut up your mouth. Goodluck Jonatha pays Reno Omokri to use oil money to hire all of you e-rats to write garbage all over the place. If this Ijaw president called Goodluck Jonathan loves “peac” and “unity” so much why did he and his Ijaw and Niger delta people introduce the disease called Yoruba “Christian/Muslim” in Yorubaland? You are all dubious people and we will flush you thru the toilet-GARBAGE IJAW president.

          • Peter

            You and the janjaweed called wahala, you are all boko haram. The insurgency that you and your brothers hatched will consume you. This is the beginning and you will all perish in the insecurity that you brought upon your own people. Rather than sit pretty somewhere behind that your antiquated computer writing nonsense, you should go straight into the forest and encourage your boko haram brothers to liberate the remaining north-east territories fast so that we are completely rid of all the parasites that you are. Once you have done that, they should proceed to the other northern territories and liberate them. That way we of southern Nigerian will heave a sigh of relief.

          • endingNaija

            You fanatics, Why did you introduce the diseased Yoruba Christian/Muslim dichotomy to campaigning in yoruba land? You are all evil people-PDP and his Ijaw people.

          • Wähala

            Go tell your mama to shut her knees, hear? This space is for fresh airy comments and not for gluttons on pay-per-comment stipend for crumbs. Jonathan is Satan’s advocate, the devil who claims he’s God. Nigerians were once phooled, never again… hear?

        • endingNaija

          These are the ways.
          1. PDP, CAN and Goodluck Jonathan and his campaigners sell themselves as “christian” party and candidate.
          2. “pastor TB Joshua killed 116 human beings in his so-called synagogue. Goodluck Jonathan visited Joshua, he Jonathan never was critical why Joshua killed 116 people thru the violation of basic building codes. but he Jonathan managed to take photographs for his campaign as the “christian” candidate.

          3. PDP and Goodluck Jonathan gave so-called “pastor” Bosun Emmanuel oil money to produce what essentially is a literature for PDP /Jonathan campaign under the guise of Redeemed Christian church of God. Pastor Adeboye himself had to stop the garbage Bosun Emmanuel used the oil man’s money to produce.
          4. We are waiting for when Goodluck Jonathan will go to the redeemed camp to kneel down before Pastor Adeboye and take photographs for his campaign.
          5. “pastor” oritsejafor has turned CAN to the campaign wing of the “christian” candidate-Goodluck Jonathan.
          6. PDP and Jonathan people came to Yorubaland hunting for votes and created the disease called Yoruba Christian/Muslim.
          Do you want more? I will give you. But go and drink your oil first and come back.Reno Omokri na the truth na otile n oleku na Tawanda

          • Wähala

            …na Olosi. Reno Omokri is behind most if not all the comments on this page. That is the essence of Dr. Fayemi’s speech, the spread of ethno-religious tensions for political capital. Dumbo will be dumped in the toilet where he belongs regardless how hard they try to marginalize Nigeria. Pigs!

            It shows clearly that you northerners are a bitter race. You are an agent of destruction and hateful of southerners. No wonder your people kill at the slightest provocation. I pity you all because your end is near.

        Wahala why call him an imbecile na, the choice of words is needless, you are are better than this, leave insults for the thugs on Punch Online, it is only these thugs who resort to trolling because their brains are largely impaired. If there is any disagreement in opinion or perspective lets do so as the learned individuals that we are and in the process we even learn more from each other. I know many of us are angry with the situation of Nigeria today but GEJ has his faults, infact his lethargy is annyoing but he alone must not take the blame for the decay Nigeria suffers, an attempt to do such excites our ruling elites as it festers the disunity they crave amongst the same people who suffer their misrule

        • Wähala

          Dr. Fayemi was an honored speaker who reeled out cogent reasons Nigeria is at the cross-roads due to incompetent leadership, I took serious umbrage with contributors who deride credible evaluations of the unfortunate situation in Nigeria today. Go thru the comments and it’s easy to see the gejitoes from Punch and Vanguard are out en-masse to defend the indefensible. I therefore, use Sheltox (harsh words) to discourage them from turning thematic issue into politics of “Us vs Dem” aka, Regional Presidency. I regret any offenses my comment may inspire in you alone but, to e-rats & miscreants I make no apologies. Sha, Respect!

    that more Nigerians are turning to Jesus Christ of Nazareth than even the
    Americans and British are doing. With a mindset like that Alhaji Kayode Fayemi’s,
    it is no surprise that APC is an Islamist Jihad which NEVER fielded a Christian
    as governorship candidate in any of the six states in Yorubaland since 2002
    when ACN – its Jihadist progenitor – emerged from a darkling groove in 2002,
    wearing Islamic Hijab as the party’s compulsory symbol.

    • Mr. Abdin

      But sometimes if some body like you talk it could be full of deception, when has Fayemi become Alhaji? Are you just trying to deny the points raised by Fayemi? Is religion not used as a tool for the achievement of certain political objectives? Is religion not an opium of the masses a stated by Karl marx? Are Nigerian politicians not capitalizing on the poverty on ground by using religion to woo voters my brother is better we tell ourselves the truth.

          Mister, your bigoted postings has no effect cause we know what we are going to do next year . I am a xtian and I am voting out Dumbo. Like the bible says all liars will not see the kingdom of God . He who lies steals ,so you see , you guys has a lot in common.

      • Ayodeji Soyebo

        In my own view, this on-going Fulani civil war is motivated by the most barbaric form of hate.

        Its Fulani/Kanuri perpetrators have ethnic supremacy as their war purpose but hide
        under Islam for foreign alliance. The Fulani civil war is very simply an orgy
        of un-precedented genocide.

        That genocide frees all non-Muslims from legal obligation to unite as common
        citizens with the rampaging Fulani/Kanuri genocidaires backed by a phalanx of
        Muslim Jihadists. A declared intention to kill the Igbo, Ijaw, Efik, Ibibio, Anang,

        Urhobo, Isoko, Itsekiri – simply for being wholly Christians – confers a right on those
        targeted for genocide to launch pre-emptive attacks and repudiate common
        citizenship with their attackers.

        The International Court of Justice definitively declared in the Kosovo case that it
        is lawful for any group of people under threat to declare self-independence.
        That principle will apply to general in its genocidal circumstances today.

      “The opposition party [APC] has not been able to concretize a message for the 2015 election,

      a message that appeals to people, it hasn’t come up with alternative programs that people can see

      and make a difference, in terms of the difference between themselves and the president who is in office.”

      “So i really worry that in terms of substance the opposition party [APC] has not been able to articulate a
      strong enough message that would resonate with people. I worry that the politics of Nigeria has been clouded
      so much by ethnicity by religion, and what is called zonal politics where people have been fed with messages

      that suggest that unless someone from their particular ethnic group or religion is in office,
      they would have no advantage.”

        @ Clement Nwakwo:

        I pity Yoruba people, especially their majority Christian population.
        Look, let me say this truth bluntly. The 2015 election is not just a referendum
        on Goodluck Jonathan – poor as his performance has been. No, not at all!

        Rather, 2015 is a lethal choice on whether Nigeria shall be declared an
        Islamic State by force. That’s the issue the rabid Hausa/Fulani Muslims
        have forced on Nigeria by continuing and merciless mass murder.

        With Boko Haram now headed west, Yoruba Christians would be routed.
        Boko Haram already surrounds Yorubaland’s external borders up to Ilorin

        and northern Edo state, whilst internally, Yoruba Christians chafe
        under the rule of APC Mujahedeen governments, except in Ondo and Ekiti
        states. That’s what makes Yorubaland a vulnerable enclave
        in the event of Boko Haram’s imminent invasion of Yorubaland.

        • Bade Onimole

          “If Nigeria were to fissure along religious lines, the Yoruba would become a
          minority in a Hausa-dominated North and in an Igbo-dominated South and will
          also likely face the prospect of internal fratricide if Yoruba Muslims and
          Christians fought each other.”

          “The Yoruba recognize that they would suffer from inter-religious conflict more than
          any other ethnic group in the country since they are religiously mixed, while
          two other large ethnic groups – the Igbos and the Hausas – are almost uniformly
          Christian and Muslim”.

          @ BosMan:

          Alhaji Kayode Fayemi – or whatever his name is – must be quite daft to miss the point.
          Islamic Jihad is Nigeria’s existential threat. All wise Nigerians should rank Islamic
          fundamentalism as the greatest threat to their country – even as a shambolic republic
          that Nigeria is today.

          Nigeria’s death toll could rise at geometric proportion unless a concerted war effort is
          launched to staunch these armed Jihadists. For truth is, the Fulani-led Boko Haram
          speaks clearly. It announced it will kill all Nigerian Christians. That means 99% of
          Igbo people and a good half of the Yoruba are those targeted for mass murder.

          I pity Yoruba Christians because they are un-armed and defenceless, even though in trouble.
          They assume that Boko Haram is just a Hausa/Fulani murder machine. They do not understand
          the concept of global jihad underway. Yoruba Christians do not connect the dots that since Yoruba Muslims are active cells in Al Qaeda, those cells are invariably allied to Boko Haram -whose stated aim is the ‘mass killings of all Christians’.

            “There is a systematic effort by insurgents and terrorists to destabilize the Nigerian state and test our collective resolve. These terrorists and insurgents seem determined to establish control and
            authority over parts of our beloved nation and to progressively overwhelm the rest of the country.”

      We can have opposing views and debate, we must not all be on the same page, and people are free to express themselves, but the worst thing that happened to us is the killings in the name of elections and quest for power. No one should die for for religion or politics. They kill people after losing elections, they kill people before any major political event of the president, and turn around to blame the president for insecurity.

    ALHAJI KAYODE FAYEMI IS A HYPOCRITE

    This waterbed ex-Governor of Ekiti state, Alhaji Kayode Fayemi needs to eat humble pie.
    Out here, there are doubly far more intelligent folks than he considers himself. Just look at the
    nigh-illiterate arguments he’s presented here! One can imagine him sweatily rummaging shelves
    of borrowed libraries to get the figures he’s flaunted, by perhaps pillaging some copyright works
    on Christian websites.

    One could have said well done to him for endeavour…but see!
    He faltered and failed to do what a honest person will do – to simply apply
    himself to Islam the same way he’s groaned and agonized over rapid
    expansion of Christianity in Nigeria. But what do we see here instead?
    Absolute silence! Like an ostrich with its head stuck in sand dunes, Alhaji Fayemi
    does not see Boko Haram beheading in genocidal war against Christians.

    Poor Alhaji Kayode Fayemi. Like the three proverbial monkeys, Alhaji Fayemi
    sees no evil in Boko Haram and he hears no evil concerning Boko Haram,
    and now he speaks no evil of Boko Haram. All he says here is that he feels pains
    that more Nigerians are turning to Jesus Christ of Nazareth than even the
    Americans and British are doing.

    With a mindset like that of Alhaji Kayode Fayemi’s, it is really no surprise that
    APC is an Islamist Jihad which has NEVER fielded a Christian as governorship candidate
    in any of the six states in Yorubaland since 2002, when ACN – its Jihadist progenitor –
    emerged from a darkling groove in 2002, wearing the Islamic Hijab as the party’s symbol.

      Even if you look at it closely, you will find that the dominant people
      in Lagos state are Muslims”.

    They voted Fayemi out cos he stood on good governance and not stomach infrastructure. Just this morning, Gov Fayose sacked the 20,000 street sweepers in Ekiti for no just reason.

    If this is what they want; let them enjoy it.

    However, President Jonathan will never and wont succeed in making attempt to divide the country on religious and ethnicity line.

  • Wähala

    Nigeria has never been so divided along ethno-religious lines than this, at no time in her history has religion been abused to the detriment of the unity of the nation. When Asari started cutting hate videos backed by Edwin Clark and CAN thug, Oletsejafor, pundits warned that CAN had become “the religious wing” of this Administration. When Boko Haram started indiscriminate killings, instead of confronting their scourge as terrorism, Dumbo exploited the carnage by blaming it on those who merely quoted from JFK’s iconic speeches. Dumbo desecrated the Office of the President of Nigeria by kneeling in front of a fake pastor in his desperation to be seen as “God fearing” while actually he is a psychopath, a sadist to whom life & death means nada. No sane man goes from the scene of a bloodbath to party and drink red wine. Every sensitive president the world over visits the site of carnage involving loss of lives he swore to uphold, Dumbo has visited none… in fact, it took a teenager from Pakistan in another continent to extract a pledge from him to invite and meet the parents of 300 girls kidnapped under his drunken gaze. Olosi. He rescued his uncle in days, captured the kidnappers of Diezani and Aunty Ngozi’s relatives, but has done absolutely nothing to rescue over 200 girls still in captivity because they’re mostly Northerners. Simply put, Jona Dumbo is a threat to Nigeria’s continued unity, take-it or leave-it, that is Gospel !!!

      This wahala man, I think you are suffering from this disease called Jonatophobia. Your hatred for Dr Jonathan is affecting you to the extent that his shadows, Mr President’s perceived friends and followers is fast catching up with you. You must watch it so that you do not go neckade in the street pursuing Jonathan. It is very clear that you are a sworn enemy of this administration and all the south-south people in Nigeria. Please unmask yourself so that we may know your identity. Don’t hide behind the nickname. To continue to do this is an act of cowardice. Nigerians are such wonderful people that you may even be one of those that feed from Mr President. This is more so as most Hausa remnants like you are so hungry now that they want power to return to the north by all means.

    Our biggest problem is RELIGION! Everyone professes adherence to the Christian or Muslim Faith but acts like pagans. Let us please forget religion, let us make private our faith, and act like other societies that have developed in spite of religion.

    I agree 100% that this President has used religion and ethnicity to divide the country. But that is not a surprise. Incompetent leaders run under the cover of religion and ethnicity to hide their shortcomings…..’they don’t like me because I am a minority….they don’t like me because I am a Christian’ is the mantra of this President, as if only the votes of Ijaw and Christians made him President.

    We, Christians, voted for GEJ on the basis of sentiments (I did not vote for him). See where it has landed us.

    We have another chance to make amends next year. If we miss it, we miss out!

    • Akiika

      Do you really know the quantity of violent verses equally in the bible if you want to quote out of context? I’ll give you a few moron;

      1.(Exodus 22:19)

      Whoever sacrifices to any god, except the Lord alone, shall be doomed.

      2. (2 Chronicles 15:12-13) kill Nonbelivers

      They entered into a covenant to seek the Lord, the God of their fathers, with all their heart and soul; and everyone who would not seek the Lord, the God of Israel, was to be put to death, whether small or great, whether man orwoman funniest of all

      3. (Exodus 31:12-15) Kill People for Working on the Sabbath……..

      The LORD then gave these further instructions to Moses: ‘Tell the people of Israel to keep my Sabbath day, for the Sabbath is a sign of the covenant between me and you forever. It helps you to remember that I am the LORD, who makes you holy. Yes, keep the Sabbath day, for it is holy. Anyone who desecrates it must die; anyone who works on that day will be cut off from the community. Work six days only, but the seventh day must be a day of total rest. I repeat: Because the LORD considers it a holy day, anyone who works on the Sabbath must be put to death

      Isaiah 13;15-18

      15 Whoever is found will be thrust through, and whoever is caught will fall by the sword. 16 Their infants will be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses will be plundered, and their wives ravished. 17 See, I am stirring up the Medes against them, who have no regard for silver and do not delight in gold. 18 Their bows will slaughter the young men; they will have no mercy on the fruit of the womb; their eyes will not pity children.

      1 Samuel 15:3

      Now go and attack Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have; do not spare them, but kill both man and woman, child and infant, ox and sheep, camel and donkey.

      Christianity does not preach violence but the bible does!

      Jeremiah 51:20-26

      “You are my battle-ax and sword,” says the LORD. “With you I will shatter nations and destroy many kingdoms. With you I will shatter armies, destroying the horse and rider, the chariot and charioteer. With you I will shatter men and women, old people and children, young men and maidens. With you I will shatter shepherds and flocks, farmers and oxen, captains and rulers. “As you watch, I will repay Babylon and the people of Babylonia for all the wrong they have done to my people in Jerusalem,” says the LORD. “Look, O mighty mountain, destroyer of the earth! I am your enemy,” says the LORD. “I will raise my fist against you, to roll you down from the heights. When I am finished, you will be nothing but a heap of rubble. You will be desolate forever. Even your stones will never again be used for building. You will be completely wiped out,” says the LORD. (Jeremiah 51:20-26)

      “You should not let a sorceress live”. (Exodus 22:17)

      “Whoever strikes his father or mother shall be put to death”. (Exodus 21:15)

      “All who curse their father or mother must be put to death. They are guilty of a capital offense”. (Leviticus 20:9)

      Kill Nonbelievers

      They entered into a covenant to seek the Lord, the God of their fathers, with all their heart and soul; and everyone who would not seek the Lord, the God of Israel, was to be put to death, whether small or great, whether man or woman. (2 Chronicles 15:12-13).

      Kill Followers of Other Religions.

      “If your own full brother, or your son or daughter, or your beloved wife, or you intimate friend, entices you secretly to serve other gods, whom you and your fathers have not known, gods of any other nations, near at hand or far away, from one end of the earth to the other: do not yield to him or listen to him, nor look with pity upon him, to spare or shield him, but kill him. Your hand shall be the first raised to slay him; the rest of the people shall join in with you. You shall stone him to death, because he sought to lead you astray from the Lord, your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, that place of slavery. And all Israel, hearing of this, shall fear and never do such evil as this in your midst. (Deuteronomy 13:7-12)

      They will say that’s old testament and jesus had amended it, they have forgotten that they say jesus is the same GOD of old testament and new testament.

      In new testament jesus said

      Matthew 5:17 ►

      New International Version

      “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.

      Jesus also ordered killing:

      Luke 19:27 ► jesus said:-

      New International Version

      “But those enemies of mine who did not want me to be king over them–bring them here and kill them in front of me.'”

      Jesus came to spread sword not peace – Bible

      Jesus said in:-

      Matthew 10:34-38

      New Living Translation (NLT)

      34 “Don’t imagine that I came to bring peace to the earth ! I came not to bring peace, but a sword.

      35 ‘I have come to set a man against his father,

      a daughter against her mother,

      and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.

      36 Your enemies will be right in your own household!’

      37 “If you love your father or mother more than you love me, you are not worthy of being mine; or if you love your son or daughter more than me, you are not worthy of being mine. 38 If you refuse to take up your cross and follow me, you are not worthy of being mine.

      @ Al Jihad,

      Misled by naïve pastors, Nigerian Christians are
      told from the pulpit to close their eyes and wait for Elijah’s chariot of fire
      to take them to heaven. Muslims meantime dominate the country; and,
      take control of the public treasury by plotting as a group (Muslim Ummah).

      Even as they are being targeted and killed like flies, in thousands, each Christian
      only selfishly thinks of his own personal salvation in heaven. For so long as this selfish
      mentality persists in Nigerian Christendom it is a matter of time before the north and the west
      of Nigeria are overwhelmed by Islamism as state ideology to become an Islamic state.

      • Ikeji

        My brother Andy,

        So you don’t know? When the Islamists take full control, the REDEEMED CAMP
        will be declared as the new Central Mosque of Yorubaland. It happened in Turkey.
        The Pastors you describe as naive may be worse if they have eyes but can’t see.
        Bishops and Pastors are always the first ones to be beheaded in an Islamic Jihad.
        That is what history teaches those who are not heedless like the Nigerian Pastors are.
        When they are beheaded by Islamists of what use is the Holy Spirit to the Pastors?

        • Paul Oseretin

          DON’T BLAME CHRISTIAN PASTORS

          self-defence corps against Muslim militia group called ‘Seleka’ – which is the
          equivalent of Nigeria’s Boko Haram. The Christian corps there armed itself to
          the same level as Boko Haram has done in Nigeria, for deterrence against Islamism.

      I do not have the time to nor inclination to deal with all the lies and half truths you have copy and pasted, and to be honest, I am completely fed up of all the lies that Jonathan’s etrolls, copy and paste about Islam, but in the interest of interfaith dialogue, i will deal with the first quote from Quran 2:216, ‘ Fighting is ordained for you, even though it be hateful to you; and it may well be that you hate a thing while it is good for you, and it may well be that you love a thing while it is bad for you: GOD knows whereas you do not. this verse must be read in light of 2;190-193 ” and fight in God’s cause against those who wage war against you, BUT COMMIT NOT AGGRESSION( emphasis mine) for verily, God does not love aggressors, and slay them wherever you may come upon them, and drive them from WHEREVER THEY DROVE YOU AWAY- for oppression is worse than killing. Finally for clarity, Chapter 22;39″ permission to fight is given to those whom war isted BEING WRONGFULLY WAGED and verily(surely) God had indeed the power to give them succour those who have been driven from their homelands against ALL RIGHT for no other reason than their saying OUR SUSTAINER IS GOD. a brief explanation, The prophet was aversed to fighting he was a merchant, but was persecuted badly by his own people because, calling people to the one God stood in their way of commercial gain for people came from all over the Arabian pennisular to worship the idols in the Kaaba and as keeper of the Kaaba, the Quraish, stood to use their livelihood, so they made life hell for the Prophet and his followers, the verse, you quoted only gave permission to fight, previous verses had given STRICT CONDITIONS UNDER WHICH YOU MAY WAGE PURELY AND ONLY DEFENSIVE WARS. Islam forbids war of aggression, wars can only be fought when you are persecuted for your beliefs no more .

  • Maria

    Nigerians are lazy people who rely on phantom supernatural power for survival and the gangsters called pastors feast on this ignorance of lazy people to milk them of their meagre salaries and earnings. Any pastor wanting offerings and tithes from me should forget about it… if the only criterion for entering the kingdom of God is tithe let God hold on to his heaven. Moreso, Jesus never mentioned tithe as part of christian obligation.. he only said only those who believe in his name and profess him as the Lord and Saviour shall enter into the kingdom of his Father.

    • Otile

      Maria, what you are preaching here is anti canonical, non ecclesiastical, and theologically unsound. Don’t preach that anyone who calls Lord Lord will automatically enter into the Kingdom. You cannot continue to commit scandalous adultery, clumsy abortions, sodomy, homosexuality, bestiality and all kinds of immorality and walk straight to heaven hoping that you are straight in the eyes of God as long as you profess His Name. No, Maria, no.

    Out here, there are doubly far more intelligent folks than he considers himself. Just look at the

    He faltered and failed to do what a honest person will do – to simply apply

      Welcome “Pastor” Reno Wendel Omokri. How body? How church today? Hope church dey well well . Just a qeustion for you: Is stealing corruption? What do you think the bible say about this “pastor”? Will the “christian” president-Goodluck Jonathan continue to implement this policy in his administration since he owns the copyright of STEALING IS NOT CORRUPTION!!! Yet our “christian” president calls himself a “christian” and the “christian” candidate-Oh my God!

      • Chibogu

        What kind of name is this: Elisha Mohammed? I have not heard this kind of name before!
        Are Nigerians normal again? How can somebody be bearing Christian and Muslim names?
        Anyway sha, Alhaji Kayode Fayemi himself put “John” in hos own name too, to deceive people.
        I think the Yoruba people should stop this deception, Alhaji Fayemi in particular – it is a big sin.

        • endingNaija

          Elisha Mohammed is one of you now. He is one of your corrupt OIL men from the Niger Delta creek. Elisha Mohammed in an e-rat creation of the New media Adviser to your Ijaw presdent-Goodluck Jonathan. The new media adviser’s name is “Pastor” Reno Wendel Omokri. So “pastor” Reno WEndel Omokri is Elisha Mohammed. South South and Eastern man you know there are many fake Pastors like that one who is the religious adviser to your president-Ayo Oritsejafor. So “pastor Omokri na Elisha Mohammed . And Igbo man /South South man , you know because all of your dubious minds campaigning for your “christian” candidate-Goodluck Jonathan.

    “When the Islamists take full control of power, the REDEEMED CAMP
    will be declared as the new Central Mosque of Yorubaland. It happened in Turkey.
    The Pastors you describe as naive may be worse if they have eyes but can’t see.
    Bishops and Pastors are always the first ones to be beheaded in an Islamic Jihad.
    That is what history teaches those who are not heedless like Nigerian Pastors are.
    When they are beheaded by Islamists of what use is the Holy Spirit to these Pastors?”

  • Akindolamu

    My observation is that PDP and Goodluck Jonathan online campaign machine was really disturbed by Kayode Fayemi’s innocent and harmless but correct remark. But what bothers me is why did this simple remark disturb Goodluck Jonathan campaign machine this deeply? Did this harmless remark touch a raw nerve? Is something being exposed in the Goodluck Jonathan camp which they do not like? I am just asking.

    • Robbie

      @ Akindolamu,

      No, no, no, don’t get it wrong, he did not make a harmless remark, but an ignorant one.
      He made no comment on Islam but disparaged Christianity as being at odds with honesty.
      Whereas this Muslim cretin called Alhaji Kayode Fayemi has no moral standing as a person.
      You get it now? Okay, if you get the point now, please don’t ever forget it, again in future.

      • Akindolamu

        It is harmless . But because it is true , you Ijaw and Niger Delta campaigners for the Ijaw president-Goodluck Jonathan were disturbed. Let me give you a a good example. Why did you bring the disease called Yoruba “Christian/Muslim” to Yorubaland? You ar all dubious and evil.

      • Hans Oreva

  • Nuorah

    Nigerian’s should differentiate between politics and Religion because PDP want to use Religion to confuse Nigerians. Instead they provide Infrastructures and social amenities to the People we want them to improved if not Nigerians will vote them out in 2015 election.

    • Otile

      Muslims cannot separate politics from religion. Islam by its nature is theocracy. This is why it is dangerous to entrust Nigerian presidency in the hands of Islamic APC. You saw how Babangida dragged secular Nigeria into IOC, or how Yerima used the lure of sharia to get himself elected governor in Zamfara. Avaunt, Islam is toxic.

      • Mr. Abdin

        I don’t blame you, because you have been brainwashed by your clueless GEJ who always travel to Israel for the actualization of religious fundamentalism he thought that is the only way that he can achieved his political ambition. He has to note the penstocolization of Nigerian politics is not going to work. Though i don’t blame the clueless GEJ but some of you who claimed to be pretenders by seeing a Jew as an ally who never love any christian if really GEJ is true christian why did n’t he complained about the brutalization of Palestinian christians by the Israelis? For this reason no party hides under the coverof religion and perpetuate evil like the PDP, because it is more of a christian party and the party of the minority.

    • Holy Warrior

      “APC is diametrically opposed to the multi-religious values of Yoruba people.

      APC denies Yoruba people Freedom of Information under Nigerian Law.

      APC is, besides that, roguish and thievish and does not render public accounts.

      The enlightened people in Yorubaland cannot sensibly endorse such a toxic party.

        Do you want to pay attention to your own contradiction? Please answer this question: Who and which party introduced the diseased dichotomy-“Yoruba Christian/Muslim” to Yorubaland? The answer is PDP and Goodluck Jonathan campaigners did. That is all . PDP and Godluck Jonathan are disguised religious bigots and zealots ; they sell Goodluck Jonathan as the “christian” candidate. The terrible thing is that they do this and only as a vote hunting expedition. They tricksters using religion to divide Nigerians.

Christians in Lagos state console themselves with Jack and Jill went up the hill whilst lacking in common sense themselves to guard their own lives by simple precautions.

        That is a truthful statement,politically incorrect but still truthful… Lagos has always had a muslim governor none complains in fact the religion of the governor is unimportant.. fash Ola is muslim but has done 1000 times more than uduaghan a Christian governor…. I don’t care if a Christian never rules Lagos or nigeria for that matter…credibility is all we ask for and if a Christian with our rotten morals cannot do it then I care less if fashOla as a muslim is the governor or if he would hand over to an igbe or ifa worshipper….

    4. Christianity preaches forgiveness and despises revenge.
    5. In the Christian faith,we believe that God is omnipotent and omnipresent…therefore who are we to fight for him or kill in his name ?
    6. The preservation of human life is epitome in Christianity.

    The interesting thing is that this Government has never come out to even deny this claim of bigotry and divisive tendency, even if they would tell lie. So, GEJ himself has created more enemies for himself than how much people would have hated him. It’s so strange the type of leader we have. I pray that God deliver us.

      ALHAJI KAYODE FAYEMI IS A HYPOCRITE

      This waterbed ex-Governor of Ekiti state, Alhaji Kayode Fayemi needs to eat humble pie.
      Out here, there are doubly far more intelligent folks than he considers himself. Just look at the
      nigh-illiterate arguments he’s presented here! One can imagine him sweatily rummaging shelves
      of borrowed libraries to get the figures he’s flaunted, by perhaps pillaging some copyright works
      on Christian websites.

      One could have said well done to him for endeavour…but see!
      He faltered and failed to do what a honest person will do – to simply apply
      himself to Islam the same way he’s groaned and agonized over rapid
      expansion of Christianity in Nigeria. But what do we see here instead?
      Absolute silence! Like an ostrich with its head stuck in sand dunes, Alhaji Fayemi
      does not see Boko Haram beheading in genocidal war against Christians.

      Poor Alhaji Kayode Fayemi. Like the three proverbial monkeys, Alhaji Fayemi
      sees no evil in Boko Haram and he hears no evil concerning Boko Haram,
      and now he speaks no evil of Boko Haram. All he says here is that he feels pains
      that more Nigerians are turning to Jesus Christ of Nazareth than even the
      Americans and British are doing.

      With a mindset like that of Alhaji Kayode Fayemi’s, it is really no surprise that
      APC is an Islamist Jihad which has NEVER fielded a Christian as governorship candidate
      in any of the six [6] states in Yorubaland since 2002, when ACN – its Jihadist progenitor –
      emerged from a darkling groove in 2002, wearing Islamic Hijab as the party’s symbol.

      GEJ instituted Sharia in 12 Northern States. GEJ killed education in the core North since independence. GEJ is forcing the Northern Minorities to embrace education hence the current move by Boko Haram to reverse that injustice.

      These are straight from the various versions of the Bible;

      Do you really know the quantity of violent
      verses equally in the bible if you want to quote out of context? I’ll
      give you a few moron;

      1.(Exodus 22:19)
      Whoever sacrifices to any god, except the Lord alone, shall be doomed.

      2. (2 Chronicles 15:12-13) kill Nonbelivers
      They
      entered into a covenant to seek the Lord, the God of their fathers,
      with all their heart and soul; and everyone who would not seek the Lord,
      the God of Israel, was to be put to death, whether small or great,
      whether man or woman.

      3. (Exodus 31:12-15) Kill People for Working on the Sabbath……..
      The
      LORD then gave these further instructions to Moses: ‘Tell the people of
      Israel to keep my Sabbath day, for the Sabbath is a sign of the
      covenant between me and you forever. It helps you to remember that I am
      the LORD, who makes you holy. Yes, keep the Sabbath day, for it is holy.
      Anyone who desecrates it must die; anyone who works on that day will be
      cut off from the community. Work six days only, but the seventh day
      must be a day of total rest. I repeat: Because the LORD considers it a
      holy day, anyone who works on the Sabbath must be put to death

      Isaiah 13;15-18
      15
      Whoever is found will be thrust through, and whoever is caught will
      fall by the sword. 16 Their infants will be dashed to pieces before
      their eyes; their houses will be plundered, and their wives ravished. 17
      See, I am stirring up the Medes against them, who have no regard for
      silver and do not delight in gold. 18 Their bows will slaughter the
      young men; they will have no mercy on the fruit of the womb; their eyes
      will not pity children.

      1 Samuel 15:3
      Now go and attack Amalek,
      and utterly destroy all that they have; do not spare them, but kill
      both man and woman, child and infant, ox and sheep, camel and donkey.

      Jeremiah 51:20-26
      “You
      are my battle-ax and sword,” says the LORD. “With you I will shatter
      nations and destroy many kingdoms. With you I will shatter armies,
      destroying the horse and rider, the chariot and charioteer. With you I
      will shatter men and women, old people and children, young men and
      maidens. With you I will shatter shepherds and flocks, farmers and oxen,
      captains and rulers. “As you watch, I will repay Babylon and the people
      of Babylonia for all the wrong they have done to my people in
      Jerusalem,” says the LORD. “Look, O mighty mountain, destroyer of the
      earth! I am your enemy,” says the LORD. “I will raise my fist against
      you, to roll you down from the heights. When I am finished, you will be
      nothing but a heap of rubble. You will be desolate forever. Even your
      stones will never again be used for building. You will be completely
      wiped out,” says the LORD. (Jeremiah 51:20-26)

      “You should not let a sorceress live”. (Exodus 22:17)

      “Whoever strikes his father or mother shall be put to death”. (Exodus 21:15)

      “All who curse their father or mother must be put to death. They are guilty of a capital offense”. (Leviticus 20:9)

      Kill Nonbelievers
      They
      entered into a covenant to seek the Lord, the God of their fathers,
      with all their heart and soul; and everyone who would not seek the Lord,
      the God of Israel, was to be put to death, whether small or great,
      whether man or woman. (2 Chronicles 15:12-13).

      Kill Followers of Other Religions.
      “If
      your own full brother, or your son or daughter, or your beloved wife,
      or you intimate friend, entices you secretly to serve other gods, whom
      you and your fathers have not known, gods of any other nations, near at
      hand or far away, from one end of the earth to the other: do not yield
      to him or listen to him, nor look with pity upon him, to spare or shield
      him, but kill him. Your hand shall be the first raised to slay him; the
      rest of the people shall join in with you. You shall stone him to
      death, because he sought to lead you astray from the Lord, your God, who
      brought you out of the land of Egypt, that place of slavery. And all
      Israel, hearing of this, shall fear and never do such evil as this in
      your midst. (Deuteronomy 13:7-12)

      They will say that’s old
      testament and jesus had amended it, they have forgotten that they say
      jesus is the same GOD of old testament and new testament.

      In new testament jesus said

      Matthew 5:17 ►

      New International Version

      “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.

      Jesus also ordered killing:

      Luke 19:27 ► jesus said:-

      New International Version

      “But those enemies of mine who did not want me to be king over them–bring them here and kill them in front of me.'”

      Jesus came to spread sword not peace – Bible

      Jesus said in:-

      Matthew 10:34-38

      New Living Translation (NLT)

      34 “Don’t imagine that I came to bring peace to the earth ! I came not to bring peace, but a sword.

      35 ‘I have come to set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.

      36 Your enemies will be right in your own household!’

      37
      “If you love your father or mother more than you love me, you are not
      worthy of being mine; or if you love your son or daughter more than me,
      you are not worthy of being mine. 38 If you refuse to take up your cross
      and follow me, you are not worthy of being mine.

      So, Ignorant Bigoted Morons….what do you have to say?
      Criminals
      claiming to be Muslims and Christians are stealing us dry and denying
      us and our children of God given right to good life, rather than resist
      them, you come up here to display your ignorance!

    I live in a estate considered upper middle class. the houses are lovely but the gutters overflow and the roads have seen better days. Everyone drives in and out in large vehicles – the larger to avoid the road bumps, they buy two massive generators that could power whole streets so they can insulate themselves from Nigerian weather. Their Kingdom begins at their front porch, the sitting rooms are immaculate, but upstairs are a different matter. they long for the summer to come to they can travel with loads of people on the London underground, sit in the park with people who are looking for the tan they don’t need. All in all, the people in my estate are Nigerians, most are obsessed with appearances, escapists from reality who believe they can continue to insulate themselves from poor governance and corruption. Their businesses close by six to avoid robbers and their children dare not walk to the school round the corner. They keep change of at least 50,000 in the house just in case of an emergency. “Just in case”money. Life is beautiful. This is Nigeria. Don’t you just love her?

  • Ekwekwe

    Dr Fayemi (PhD in Nonsense), do not blame the victim, blame the oppressors who said they will make Nigeria ungovernable if Jonathan became president. The root of all the troubles is that one part of Nigeria, which has ruled Nigeria for more than 2/3 of 54 years, does not want a president to come from the southern minorities. Some crazies from the north want removed the first president, and perhaps the only one in the next half century, to come from the among the southern minorities and the so called intellectual ex-governor, cosily warming up to the jihadists, is blaming the victim.

  • Dr Pat Kolawole Awosan

    Most Nigerians especially those who9 are hired by PDP-president Ebele Jonathan to continue to promote ethnic/tribal/religious sentiment in various internet forums are the proof of former governor Dr Kayode Fayemi’s accusation against president Ebele Jonathan and his South-South/East-female-ethnic/tribal/religious dominated cabinet.
    Nigerians are deeply divided today and there is no more sign of unity-bond among Nigerians as president Jonathan hired agents constantly abuse other ethnic/tribe/religious groups especially,the Hausa/Fulani whom Deri Orbuka/burnig spear and his ilks frequently abuse in this forum and other forums as layabouts who depend on South-South oil revenue.Oil belongs to all Nigerians as no ethnic/tribal group could lay claim to Nigerian oil/gas deposits.

    • Bosah

      I have always liked Fayemi’s persona. I think he is a good man. Nigerians have a tendency to not even see where the other guy is coming from. Fayemi is entitled to his opinion and I respect that.

      I do however disagree with him that GEJ is fueling the divisions in the country. That is not true. When the voiceless start finding their voices, the oppressors always complain that someone is causing disaffection. The minorities have found their voice and the big men on campus don’t like that. Why do have the incessant killings in the NC, masquerading as pastoral/farmer conflicts. The true revolution that Nigerians are looking for will not manifest until the numerous pockets of oppressed peoples find their voice. Then and until then will the convergence of the oppressed will bring about the change we are asking for. After the emancipation of the minorities, the Talakawa empowerment will follow.

      Change is difficult and will not be defined and controlled by the thieving and comfortable elite. It is the downtrodden, their overthrow of the status quo, that will usher in a new Nigeria. The people that constructed the corrupt infrastructure will not be the ones to dismantle it. Oppression, mediocrity, nepotism and patronage are the cornerstones of Nigeria’s corruption edifice.

        Apparently he also speaks for our Creator. Hear him: “GOD IS AWARE OF ALL OF YOU”. The despicable doc mouths this while spewing vile ethno-religious hatred, which i presume that our creator approves this in the dr”s deluded mind. let us not forget that the term doctor is supposed to signify KNOWLEDGE of healing. Wild dogs that is what is going on in Nigeria. The most demented of the human species are opening their mouths with authority. Indeed the world as it concerns Nigeria has gone stark raving MAD!!

  • Eze Okeke

    The million dollar bed man is talking about corruption. I don’t think that he has the moral standing to comment on such issues. Those who come to equity must have spotless hands. He should hide his face in shame for the life of deceit he led as the governor of poor Ekiti state.

  • Akiika

    To you ignorant bigots that refuses to address issue but rather do exactly what Shekau is doing, these are straight from the various versions of the Bible;

    Do you really know the quantity of violent verses equally in the bible if you want to quote out of context? I’ll give you a few moron;

    1.(Exodus 22:19)
    Whoever sacrifices to any god, except the Lord alone, shall be doomed.

    2. (2 Chronicles 15:12-13) kill Nonbelivers
    They entered into a covenant to seek the Lord, the God of their fathers, with all their heart and soul; and everyone who would not seek the Lord, the God of Israel, was to be put to death, whether small or great, whether man orwoman funniest of all

    3. (Exodus 31:12-15) Kill People for Working on the Sabbath……..
    The LORD then gave these further instructions to Moses: ‘Tell the people of Israel to keep my Sabbath day, for the Sabbath is a sign of the covenant between me and you forever. It helps you to remember that I am the LORD, who makes you holy. Yes, keep the Sabbath day, for it is holy. Anyone who desecrates it must die; anyone who works on that day will be cut off from the community. Work six days only, but the seventh day must be a day of total rest. I repeat: Because the LORD considers it a holy day, anyone who works on the Sabbath must be put to death

    Isaiah 13;15-18
    15 Whoever is found will be thrust through, and whoever is caught will fall by the sword. 16 Their infants will be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses will be plundered, and their wives ravished. 17 See, I am stirring up the Medes against them, who have no regard for silver and do not delight in gold. 18 Their bows will slaughter the young men; they will have no mercy on the fruit of the womb; their eyes will not pity children.

    1 Samuel 15:3
    Now go and attack Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have; do not spare them, but kill both man and woman, child and infant, ox and sheep, camel and donkey.

    Jeremiah 51:20-26
    “You are my battle-ax and sword,” says the LORD. “With you I will shatter nations and destroy many kingdoms. With you I will shatter armies, destroying the horse and rider, the chariot and charioteer. With you I will shatter men and women, old people and children, young men and maidens. With you I will shatter shepherds and flocks, farmers and oxen, captains and rulers. “As you watch, I will repay Babylon and the people of Babylonia for all the wrong they have done to my people in Jerusalem,” says the LORD. “Look, O mighty mountain, destroyer of the earth! I am your enemy,” says the LORD. “I will raise my fist against you, to roll you down from the heights. When I am finished, you will be nothing but a heap of rubble. You will be desolate forever. Even your stones will never again be used for building. You will be completely wiped out,” says the LORD. (Jeremiah 51:20-26)

    “You should not let a sorceress live”. (Exodus 22:17)

    “Whoever strikes his father or mother shall be put to death”. (Exodus 21:15)

    “All who curse their father or mother must be put to death. They are guilty of a capital offense”. (Leviticus 20:9)

    Kill Nonbelievers
    They entered into a covenant to seek the Lord, the God of their fathers, with all their heart and soul; and everyone who would not seek the Lord, the God of Israel, was to be put to death, whether small or great, whether man or woman. (2 Chronicles 15:12-13).

    Kill Followers of Other Religions.
    “If your own full brother, or your son or daughter, or your beloved wife, or you intimate friend, entices you secretly to serve other gods, whom you and your fathers have not known, gods of any other nations, near at hand or far away, from one end of the earth to the other: do not yield to him or listen to him, nor look with pity upon him, to spare or shield him, but kill him. Your hand shall be the first raised to slay him; the rest of the people shall join in with you. You shall stone him to death, because he sought to lead you astray from the Lord, your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, that place of slavery. And all Israel, hearing of this, shall fear and never do such evil as this in your midst. (Deuteronomy 13:7-12)

    They will say that’s old testament and jesus had amended it, they have forgotten that they say jesus is the same GOD of old testament and new testament.

    In new testament jesus said

    Matthew 5:17 ►

    New International Version

    “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.

    Jesus also ordered killing:

    Luke 19:27 ► jesus said:-

    New International Version

    “But those enemies of mine who did not want me to be king over them–bring them here and kill them in front of me.'”

    Jesus came to spread sword not peace – Bible

    Jesus said in:-

    Matthew 10:34-38

    New Living Translation (NLT)

    34 “Don’t imagine that I came to bring peace to the earth ! I came not to bring peace, but a sword.

    35 ‘I have come to set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.

    36 Your enemies will be right in your own household!’

    37 “If you love your father or mother more than you love me, you are not worthy of being mine; or if you love your son or daughter more than me, you are not worthy of being mine. 38 If you refuse to take up your cross and follow me, you are not worthy of being mine.

    So, Ignorant Bigoted Morons….what do you have to say?
    Criminals claiming to be Muslims and Christians are stealing us dry and denying us and our children of God given right to good life, rather than resist them, you come up here to display your ignorance!

    • Aminu

      Can you imagine! I can now see why Dumbo uses every means to cheat on us by colluding with Christians leaders to wreck havoc on my dear country .No wonder Boko Haram keep winning more territories with aid of abandoned weapons by GEJ army.As for all these violent verses quoted let me ask Christians online commentators is it really from the holy Bible?Do you mean they were revealed by the Holy father to his holy prophet Jesus and was accurately recorded by the apostles?

  • Rev

    I can see why this guy is not fit for Ekiti…
    Instead, of redrawing his political strategies he’s raising inconsequential he’ll and tantrums…

    • BenYah

      As for me I now understand why God removed him as governor after one term

    Jonathan is religious dog he always want a christian to be governor where christian are minorities

      ALHAJI KAYODE FAYEMI IS A HYPOCRITE

      This waterbed ex-Governor of Ekiti state, Alhaji Kayode Fayemi needs to eat humble pie.
      Out here, there are doubly far more intelligent folks than he considers himself. Just look at the
      nigh-illiterate arguments he’s presented here! One can imagine him sweatily rummaging shelves
      of borrowed libraries to get the figures he’s flaunted, by perhaps pillaging some copyright works
      on Christian websites.

      One could have said well done to him for endeavour…but see!
      He faltered and failed to do what a honest person will do – to simply apply
      himself to Islam the same way he’s groaned and agonized over rapid
      expansion of Christianity in Nigeria. But what do we see here instead?
      Absolute silence! Like an ostrich with its head stuck in sand dunes, Alhaji Fayemi
      does not see Boko Haram beheading in genocidal war against Christians.

      Poor Alhaji Kayode Fayemi. Like the three proverbial monkeys, Alhaji Fayemi
      sees no evil in Boko Haram and he hears no evil concerning Boko Haram,
      and now he speaks no evil of Boko Haram. All he says here is that he feels pains
      that more Nigerians are turning to Jesus Christ of Nazareth than even the
      Americans and British are doing.

      With a mindset like that of Alhaji Kayode Fayemi’s, it is really no surprise that
      APC is an Islamist Jihad which has NEVER fielded a Christian as governorship candidate
      in any of the six [6] states in Yorubaland since 2002, when ACN – its Jihadist progenitor
      emerged from a darkling groove in 2002, wearing Islamic Hijab as the party’s symbol.

      • Leke Adesanya

        Can’t you for once see common sense in what this gentleman has said? I fear for this nation of liars and religious bigots. For how long are we going to deceive ourselves in the name of religion?
        1. Will religion place food on your table?
        2. Will religion pay your bills?
        3. Will religion send your children to school?
        4. Will religion provide electricity 24/7?
        5. Will religion provide infrastructures?
        Despite the presence of these religion worship centres (muslims & Christians) things are going from bad to worse daily.
        For how long shall we kill our prophets while we stand and look.
        Go for good leadership no matter where he/she comes from. No matter what religion he/she believes. Nigeria is a secular state and she should remain so. God help Nigeria

    • Onike24

      How does this help?

    • Onigbinde Oluwatoyin

      Where is your point?

  • Garden-City Boy

    Mr Fayemi is already showing full-blown, classic symptoms of withdrawal from water-bed addiction. We see the same profuse whining, bitching, grumbling, stamping of the floor, infantile blackmail, swearing and cursing. That is the same
    pattern of desperation found with awusa people, whose lust to rule us and insatiable appetite for pleasure and sleaze drove them down the path of self-inflicted attrition. There isn’t a better dramatization of the saying: “those whom the gods wish to destroy, they first make mad” than Fayemi’s cry-baby outbursts, just as the awusa people do. The man has turned a mullah…by some kind of induction.
    He sincerely believes that he is the “anointed’. Some god (may be allah) has ordained him the for the best things of life, again just as the awusas. And in all frankness, you don’t expect any better from lousy, pleasure-seeking, spoiled brat whose psyche has been infused with the juice of awusaic APC-JANJAWEED epicureanism. We can see that he misses “something” so badly.
    Fayemi’s mindless charge on the President is mere irrational pandering. He aims to ingratiate the Janjaweed bandwagon now hurtling down the ravine of self-destruction. The guy labors vainly to avoid leaving the impression of a loser who gave up and licking his gaping wounds without a last-breath pushback. This is where President Jonathan
    comes a handy low-hanging fruit to pick on. According to the harebrained, soggy-minded, pleasure-seeking loafer, Jonathan is “fuelling ethno-religious tension in Nigeria”. This lousy judgment finds basis in the logic that “…there are more Anglicans in Nigeria than there are in England, the denomination’s mother country, or anywhere else in the world”…..reasoning the same way the awusas would do. Any wild guess that the Anglican Church Society predates even President Jonathan’s great grandparents’ era would be right. And, as far as we all know, this President has never gone out of his way to play the modern day Henry the 8th with the Anglican Communion of Nigeria. such that would fit into the whimsical characterization of this deluded, prodigal ex-governor’s imagination.
    Jonathan is not even a Catholic. The assertion about the largest Roman Catholic seminary in the world being the
    Bigard Memorial in Enugu with about 1,000 students – five times the number enrolled in the largest U.S. Catholic seminary and its relevance to “fuelling ethno-religious tension” is hard to discern. Fayemi defines the Bigard Seminary
    student intake as “prodigious”. Without attempting to read into Kayode Fayemi’s debauched mind, Bigard could be the President clandestine breeding ground for “radical Christianity” and the much taunted “snipers”, perhaps.The President would then incite “radicalized” Bigard Seminarians into frenzied rampages that target awusa islamists, just as arewa
    leaders do with almajiris… and,.thereby, “fuelling ethno-religious tension”. That is where the guy is coming from.
    But the wimp wasn’t yet done with making the laughing stock of himself. However, it is unclear if Fayemi’s assumptions on our passive gullibility leads him to believe that his ludicrous contention about the Living Faith Church possessing “the largest church auditorium in the world, the 50,400-seat Faith Tabernacle in Lagos” translates into “fuelling ethno-religious tension in Nigeria by President Jonathan and if it was sold or bought.
    Certainly, the man suffocates in his obsession for the Deeper Life Bible Church with a Lagos congregation of 150,000 as at 2004 and 6,000 branches across Nigeria. He has personal issues with the Redeemed Christian Church of God that claims 14,000 branches with 5 million members. We have never heard about these huge congregations spewing from churches, after pastoral pep talks, armed with machetes, cudgels and iron rods, on deadly crusades to lynch awusa moslems who dared resist conversion, or torch their mosques and rape women. So, what is this drunk talking about…..the President “fuelling ethno-religious tension in Nigeria”? He must be having his hallucinations.
    Undoubtedly, Kayode Fayemi is already smelling like a mullah. He has lost every sense of shame and compromised his dignity and human decency and ethics. Prioritization of profligate spending on just a bed –an executive arena for lascivious sex romps, for a public officer to lay all manner of loose women in a government house, is breath-taking. Although, for the mullah it is no surprise as it is all about sex….sex….sex….rape……rape……rape –the ultimate reward both here on earth and in allah’s eternal paradise. Kayode Fayemi could have chosen more compelling storyline to excuse his dismal electoral performance and warm his way back to political relevance in the APC-JANJAWEED. His party spitfire, Lai Mohamed, is so tongue-tied and is yet to comment on Fayemi’s gubernatorial, Olympic standard, super-sex amphitheater. A prudent man would shut the hell up in reclusive silence when foul-smelling, lubricious tales
    trail the one’s exit from a high public office.
    We are all aware that awusa people sowed the ethno-religious wind and now reap the whirlwind. Yorubas did not, nor did the Ijaws or Idomas; neither the Tives, the Beroms nor Igbos. Awusas did, destroying the little tenuous vestige of “unity” we had left. Awusa people had the affront to issue a 3-day expulsion order to all Southerners domiciled
    in their enclave, using their Boko Haram Islamic militia as front. We have not forgotten. It is therefore, disingenuous and idiotic for Kayode Fayemi to attempt a manipulative deflection of the discourse to a non-existent desert mirage.

  • Tayo Ayodele

    In 1979 Lateef Jakande and Rafiu Jafojo were elected in Lagos, Bisi Onabanjo and Sesan Soluade in Ogun, Bola Ige and SM Afolabi in Oyo. Nobody talked of Religion. I am a Christian but my first two employees are Muslims. When you give responsibility to incompetent people you start hearing ‘I am Yoruba’ and “I attend Downtown Chapel”. Religion has nothing to do with performance. Shekau is using Islam to wreck havok in Nigeria as Joseph Kony of the Lord Resistance Army (LRA) is using Christianity to commit crimes in Uganda/Central Africa. Nigerians must think!
