Nigeria2015: Organise your own debate, Jonathan will still floor Buhari, PDP dares APC

The ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, on Sunday challenged the competence of Muhammadu Buhari to debate President Goodluck Jonathan.

The PDP alleged that Mr. Buhari, the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate, is not capable of debating Mr. Jonathan.

As the APC had pulled out of a debate organised by the Broadcasting Organisation of Nigeria, BON, citing the alleged bias and impartiality of the organisers, the PDP dared the opposition party to organise any other debate, promising that President Jonathan is ready to challenge his major opponent.

“Let them be the ones to organise it; let them set up the panel; let them bring out the questions; let them show their candidate the questions before hand and let them prepare answers to those questions for their candidate,” the PDP Campaign Organisation spokesperson, Femi Fani-Kayode, said while addressing journalists.

“Let them write it down for him; let them come and we will still debate with them as long as it is live and as long as our candidate is allowed to give his answers and as long as he is not cut short. As long as they would do that, we are ready to debate with them.”

The spokesperson added that “even in those circumstances, General Muhammadu Buhari would not be able to stand against President Goodluck Jonathan. They know that; we know that and the entire country knows that and that is why they are running away.”

Mr. Fani-Kayode said his party was aware there were some Nigerians who were yet to make up their mind on who to vote in the February 14 election, and so was willing to attend a debate to present the achievements of Mr. Jonathan.

“But for those that are yet to decide and perhaps for those who are leaning towards Buhari, if we have a live debate and everybody is allowed to speak his or her mind freely and fairly, I assure you that by the end of that exercise, General Buhari will be exposed for what he is and President Jonathan will be able to give the Nigerian people a glimpse of what he has to offer and also a good account of his records for the last four years,” he said.

“That is why the other side is running away. So, I think at the end of the exercise, after such a debate, whether APC-organised or whether organised by anybody else, President Jonathan will come out in flying colours while General Buhari will come out a very unhappy man.”

But in a prompt response, the APC Campaign Organisation said it is considering featuring its candidate at other credible media fora without the prompting of Mr. Fani-Kayode.

In a statement by its spokesperson, Garba Shehu, the APC campaign said Mr. Buhari will not shy away from explaining his policy plank on how to rebuild Nigeria from the current situation put in place by Mr. Jonathan.

“What is the hullabaloo about GMB (General Muhammadu Buhari) not attending a debate organised by elements that have shown unhidden bias towards his person, family, career and political interest?” Mr. Shehu said.

“It is on record that the man (Buhari) had participated in previous presidential debates in 2007 and 2011 respectively, which the PDP candidate did not attend,” he added in reference to the 2011 presidential debate boycotted by Mr. Jonathan, but attended by Mr. Buhari and other major opposition candidates. Mr. Buhari had also attended the debate in 2007, which was boycotted by the PDP candidate, late Umaru Yar’Adua, who eventually won the election.

Mr. Shehu added that “the APC and General Buhari have received several media invitations to the presidential election from different organisations and the party is still vetting the ones to attend, due to time constraints and motive of the organisers.”

He dismissed the insinuations from Mr. Fani-Kayode that the boycott by the APC amounts to “shielding Buhari from intellectual discussion.”

Mr. Shehu described Mr. Fani-Kayode’s remarks as the ranting of a man “with deficit communication acumen and mastery of simple logic.”

“The interpretation by the spokesman of the PDP Campaign is a huge lie. Nigerians know Buhari as a man of high integrity and one that would not shy away from public scrutiny. He is the type that would declare his asset publicly, a no-go area to the sitting President who once said ‘I don’t give a damn’ when challenged to do so in the past.

“Buhari has been to almost 32 states to explain his plans for the revival and resuscitation of our nation, and his endearing utterances have been aired to Nigerians who now support his cause en masse, unlike those who are losing party loyalists per second.”

Before we leave for more serious work: How much will you pay NEDG/BON from 20 Billion Naira Goodluck Jonathan Campaign CHOP? We will come back and check if you all have any sensible thing to say. But know that WINNERS take the decision. Jonathan needs Buhari more than Buhari needs Jonathan. Go and check campaigns ALL over the world. When you are winning you have choices. Winners WILL NEVER allow the loser to catch up with him. That is the game dunder heads!!! I go laafu taya!!

        • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

          All those establishments were around before GEJ and they will be there when he leaves office.

          • segun

            Look let me count the national institutions Mr. Goodluck jonathan DESTROYED with his CORRUPT OIL MONEY, desperation and crude partisanship (i) Police –see Ekiti election, (ii) SSS Ijaw terrorists Tompolo/doubo-asari/boyloaf said they will destroy Nigeria when Jonathan loses -SSS people sat there drinking Ogogoro -why? They have been BOUGHT by Jonathan’s corrupt OIL money (iii) Military-see the nonsense our military has become even in West Africa (iv) Christian Association of Nigeria-CAN- one of Jonathan’s campaign head quarters-bought through Ayo Oritsejafor (v) Judiciary-see the Jonathan/PDP thugnor in Ekiti-Fayose beating up JUDGES!!!! (vi) if Jonathan DESTROYED everything IN SIGHT, what is NEDG/BON-he will just throw them-NEDG/BON some crumbs from his corrupt POT-the 20 billion Naira Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Fund and they will start singing like birds and post the questions to him. Please check REAL QUICK- Buhari Campaign is GUIDED by the finest intellectual, scholarly, academic and moral minds ever in Nigerian history. The brightest in nigeria simply coalesced around Buhar to EXIT the CORRUPT GOODLUCK JONSTHAN REGIMEi-This kind of coalition happens historically only once in a while in every country and in every epoch. This is what has struck you Jonathan CORRUPT camp without your knowledge. I will not say more. Debate? Go and debate yourself. Eat your jaw!!! Or Let Sambo debate Jonathan-it is promises to be a great burlesque!!! Dis laaafu for naija na anoda ting!!!!

  • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

    The old tyrant Buhari is dodging,he is clearly on the run. Buhari lacks the physical ability to communicate effectively and with the probable onset of natural dementia,a debate will be too complicated for him to pull off !!

  • JOHN OWERE

    Who did GEJ debate in 2011? Now he is behaving like a bully. As in 2011 like him debate himself again. GMB will be elected president on Feb. 14, 2015. PDP knows this this and GEJ himself know it too.

  • Maitama Tambari

    GMB did challenge GEJ in 2011 but refused to participate. Where were you? Is it because majority of Nigerians have already made their beds and are comfortable with APC today that you are insisting of debate? On what issue which Nigerians have not known? Remember your unpalatable documentary of lies on NTA and AIT. Are these the organizations that you are expecting a rational mind to be before them for a debate? If BBC, CNN and Aljazeera are to anchor it, GMB will attend and if not, so be it. CHANGE, YES WE CAN. without a debate.

    • Gbofia Lunar

      Point of correction. He preferred to slug it out instead with Dbanj

    • Wähala

      Dumbo will melt before Christine Amanpour at the CNN… He’ll long for ogogoro faced with Stephen Sakur of BBC.
      Better to keep it local where the thickness of the Brown Envelope determines who wins… thus, the reason Buhari will not attend because he made it clear in his primaries speech that he has no shishi to dash to any barga…
      Hahaha chei!

      • PROF

        Buhari is afraid of the debate .Can you get him a translator 🙂

    • Khadijah D.

  • Alfullati

    GMB forget about this caricature of an intellectual called FFK.He sings for anyone who can give him food when he is hungry.He even can betray God for money.He can turn satan into saint provided there is CASH.FFK ,is not the number of truck loads of certificates that makes an intellectual.There are many great minds in history who had no Certificates but are copiously studied today.FFK certainly knows Isaac Newton,Albert Eistein,Williams Shakepeare and many more.Loud mouth,you cannot beat them even in your next world.With or without debate GMB will beat your candidate hands down.Wait for February 14,2015.

      But Buhari speak better, more coherent and more analytical. He doesn’t jump all over the place with his primary six certificate

  • Kazoooo

    In the beginning …. BUHARI has health challenges, precisly they said CANCER, then to CERTIFICATE issues, then to AIT, BON, NTA one hour of lies on BUHARI .. Now to debate, pls go ahead FFK, we know your next plan… GO to court to obtain injunction on Buhari or sponsor protest for postponement of election … Hmmm, u guys will always come with different antics. FFK wait do you know you DAD was a traitor? If you don’t know go and find out! You guys won’t succeed this time around. We are not coming for any debate cause we have better programmes. After FEBUHARI 14, you will rih to Ghana! akotileta omokomo.

  • Wähala

    FFK simply doesn’t get it… it’s about Change, stuupid!
    Nigerians want a breath of fresh air after choking under PDP’s brutal headlock for 16-wasted-years!
    Without electricity, 90% of Nigerians will not watch such debate so it’s better to explain it to them on campaign rallies and field questions if time permits. Gen. Buhari attended 2 previous debates which PDP candidates dodged, their over-zealous quest for a debate now must have ulterior motives thus, the more reasons GMB handlers should keep him far, far away from dug addicts and corrupt PDP cabal thugs. Buhari is a rather busy man at the moment, he will appear unannounced at other more credible “discussion sessions” and field questions directly from ordinary Nigerians… No Shaking! Meanwhile… Sai Buhari! Sai Changi!! Wallahi !!!

      No need for the usual name calling by the Angry-Peoples-Club staff here.

    • tundemash

      is it same PhD holder that reads from handouts at campaigns or the one that ran from similar debate in 2011 ?

That is the rule of thumb in elections. Our job as Buhari people is NEVER to allow you catch up with us.!!! At least Goodluck Jonathan used his own mouth to say that all Nigerian elections are RIGGED!!! So what does he need a debate for when he is going to RIG!!!

In any election, it is the duty of candidates to use the most potent weapon to demoralize their opponents. Why cant you DUMB people see that the Buhari camp are happy at the effect of our decision on you-you are demoralized and in dissaray. We in the Buhari camp are running what you call a COMPACT campaign. We take the decision and NOT PDP -NEDG-JONATHAN-BON 20 Billion Naira Jonathan Campaign Fund alliance. For a campaign-Buhari campaign- being run by the finest brains and minds in the country, you think we will ever let you catch up with us? Haba what a joke? Come on, you cannot even THINK! You Jonathan people need the photo-op, we Buhari people DO NOT. Get that INTO YOUR THICK EMPTY SKULLS. Shout your Certificate blackmail from today till Goodluck Jonathan will start packing to Otuoke to live with his terrorist mates Tompolo, Dokubo-asari -boyloaf, it WILL NOT MOVE US. Our-Buhari- photo-op is with THE NIGERIAN PEOPLE WITH WHO WE HAVE A PACT AND A COVENANT and not with a clueless and dumb person like Goodluck Jonathan. Somebody actually told me that under this Dumbo of a person we have quintuple president i.e Five President structure viz-Diezani Alison Madueke, Stellah Oduah, Patience Jonathan, Ngozi Okonjo Iweala (the one that burned whatever credentials she used to have under Goodluck Jonathan) and Goodluck Jonathan. He then concluded that Goodluck Jonathan is the WEAKEST among the five! is that the person you want we -Buhari people-winners to debate? The weakest among a five person presidency? Come on! You must be kidding. We winners-Buhari people-take the decision and NOT you losers–Jonathan/BON/NEDG alliance. That is the way of voters electoral democracy anywhere in the world. Winners -Buhari-DECIDE and not Losers-Jonathan. Get that into your empty skulls.

    This is what leadership is all about. APC has started to dictate the pace already. PDP knows without Buhari the debate will lack colour and recognition. Jonathan is not enough to interest the media. PdP is begging the same man who has no certificate to “please glamourise our debate”. When Buhari leads, Jonathan and his cohorts have no alternative than to follow.

  • Rabew awal

    A GEJ that so much claimed he have Nigeria at heart always have to read out his own campaign messages from a paper. Is that how it is done. Is that sound enough?

  • Jumoke

    PDP knows that Nigerians will not watch Jonathan debate. His media chats are always a childish event without leadership content. They want to ride on Buhari’s back to reach out to Nigerians, since their transformation jargon have only earned them ‘stones’ from angry youth. If Jonathan was a joke at Amanpour of CNN (check youtube), is it now that he will be perfect in what he doesn’t know?. Remove the military ADC standing behind him (even in restaurants), Jonathan will be fidgeting before other aspirants, not to talk of before Buhari. Jonathan should take his empty stand and answer the questions posed to aspirants in 2011 before qualifying for the 2015 debate. Jonathan’s Port Harcourt English is called ‘pidgen’ English. It is not adequate for a presidential discourse.

  • solozo

    Can they explain why GEJ did not take part in the general debate ahead of the 2011 elections? Na now day break?

  • Figaro

    THE ONLY PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE MUHAMMADU BUHARI WILL ATTEND IS
    A DEBATE ORGANIZED BY THOSE WHO FULLY AGREE WITH HIM THAT, VIZ:

    “Sharia should be introduced in full across Nigeria. I will continue to show openly
    and inside me the total commitment to the Sharia movement that is sweeping
    all over Nigeria. God willing, we will NOT stop the agitation for total implementation
    of the Sharia in the country. It is a legal responsibility which God has given us,
    within the context of one Nigeria, to continue to uphold the practice of Sharia,
    wholeheartedly. What remains for Muslims in Nigeria is for them to re-double
    their efforts and educate Muslims on the need to promote
    the full implementation of Sharia law.”

      “The (Nigerian presidential) election is expected to be very competitive,
      but the odds still favor President Jonathan. After suffering a wave of defections
      to the APC last year, including five of its governors, the PDP seems
      to have rebounded strongly. In the battleground South-west, for instance,
      the party won recent governorship elections in Ekiti State and got the governor
      of Ondo State to defect from the Labour Party to the PDP.

      The All Progressive Congress (APC) is the (opposition) party formed in February 2013
      from a merger of three ethnically and regionally based political parties. The ruling party
      – PDP – is especially strong in the South-south where Jonathan comes from, the
      South-east and among Christians in the North.

      Again, while the PDP remains weak in the Muslim North, it has gained new influential members
      who decamped from the APC including the former governors of Kano and Borno States. And,
      of course, the PDP has power of incumbency.”

      Please can someone remind me of just one good thinker amongst the APC apparatchiks?

      • Dokky

        @Ike,

        None O! Just pretenders and charlatans. They cover up ignorance with noises.
        But noise is a disorderly activity. Noise is not thinking. Thinking is sterling natural gift.
        Bereft of thought APC is not a political party. APC is just a riot of Muslims, nothing else.

    If I were Buhari’s handlers. I would give the condition that GEJ declare his asset first then release the Price Water house Audit report on the missing $20 Billion dollar before appearing for any debate.

  • MushinSpeaks

    It is laughable that the GEJ that skipped debate in 2011 is clamouring for one. Do we need a soothsayer to tell us that the NEDG debate has Taiwo Alimi, who is among the Presidential Campaign team?

    Please tell us more….

    ”I will debate Buhari anywhere, even in BBC-Hausa Services,he’s no record to stand on”–Goodluck Jonathan

    Unknown to docile Nigerians supporting Bokohari, the noble fisherman has taken accelerated intermediate and advanced courses in Hausa and is combat ready. BBC Hausa has become the turf for Bokohari for obvious reasons…it was there he stated the ‘Imam Skekau is a good man, he should be treated like the Niger Deltan Freedom Fighters, he should be granted amnesty’..What will be APC’s excuse now?
    This is why I love my Jona, as a typical noble South South, he is ready to battle any one even if you come with your referee…even if it is inside your bedroom. Clearly, there are too many questions Bokohari will never be able to answer in public, no matter how hard he rehearses. E.g.,
    1. How does he defend arrest and beating of Fela Kuti?
    2. How does he defend arrest and detention of Journalist Nduka Irabor & Co
    3. How does he defend the introduction of kidnapping in Nigeria when he tried to abduct Dikko?
    4. How does he defend the termination of FREE education by the UPN party
    5. How does he defend his statements about cutting of people’s limbs in Sharia sysyem
    6. How does he defend the call to spill blood when he loses
    7. How does he defend the call to ‘Kill’ PDP with your votes
    8. How ….

      Fani Kayode will don’t need your stolen money paid translators and the interpreters for any debate and if at all, the General will accept to participate on any debate in anywhere in Nigeria as Pdp want it,President Jonathan and his Vice President, Architect Namadi Sambo should take up their gauntlet and come to the the town of BAGA in Borno state for the debate so as to honour Nigeria.
      In every situation General Buhari will give Jonathan the thrashing of his life in any frank and open discussion about his record in public office.”
      So Nigerian are waiting for the time and the date on the debate from Pdp.

    Why will APC boycott d debate it’s vry bad,am nt surprise

  • Wisdom-Ivo Gideon Ifeanacho O.

    APC’s response shows crass ineptitude and a complete assault on the Nigerian populace. it is most unfortunate that a party that seeks Nigerian mandate will be so proud.. by feb. 14th, Nigerians will reply APC by telling them that there is no vacancy in Aso Rock.

    • EQUITY

      Right! …No vacancy until 2079 whence the South, East & West would have spent 39 yrs like the North.

      PEACE is not the absence of war but the presence of JUSTICE & EQUITY!

    • 100%9jaPikin

      Hahaha. We will see…. Wake up and stop dreaming…

  • Otile

    The dangerous thing about Buhari is that his supporters don’t have to be rational in their zeal to lay down their lives for him. Many of them are ready to sack their wives, fiances, lose their limbs and shade blood on his behalf.

    It is like insanity; the mob are going to do what he tells them to do without any rhyme or reason. The devil alone knows what kind of spell Imam cast on them.

    • 100%9jaPikin

      That’s nice! We love that spell. 12days and counting down. Say whatever. It is Buhari/Osinbajo. Feb14.

  • Olayinka Fadahunsi

    BOKOHARI.. : Thank you very much…but pls learn to refer to me as General Bokohari or Imam Bokohari. Ok?
    QUESTION.. : Ok! To start with, how old exactly are you? Bcos @ 80+ you don’t have a single white hair
    BOKOHARI.. : Look my prend, I am simply younger than Robert…As for the white hair, I use concentrated dye thrice per week.
    QUESTION.. : But why? Getting old is a gracious thing?
    BOKOHARI.. : Yes!…but these PDP people can use that against me. They are very dangerous you know…
    QUESTION…: Oh I see. Now let’s address a burning issue. Your certificates…where are they? Where is your certificate?
    BOKOHARI ..: Look my prend, Walahii I can spill blood here in the studio if you go there again…pls move to the next question.
    QUESTION.. : What’s your position on Boko haram?
    BOKOHARI.. : I have said it before, and I say it again, Imam Shekau is a good man. FG shud grant him amnesty like the Niger Delta
    fighters…he should get the same treatment

    QUESTION.. : But Mr Bokohari, oh sorry! General Bokohari, Shekau has killed too many & destroyed so much
    BOKOHARI ..: Who told you that lie? The streets are not soaked with blood yet.
    QUESTION.. : What is your position on Sharia…the cutting of limbs as punishment etc etc
    BOKOHAR.. :. Let the Muslims bother about that. Is it your limbs that are cut? Let the muslims whose limbs are cut bother and not you.
    QUESTION ..: You arrested Fela bcos he sang a song that you did not like. You asked that he be beaten and thrown into jail. Do you regret

    QUESTION ..: Gen Bokohari, just to test your mathematical skills, kindly tell us the answer to this question: 11 + 11 = ?
    BOKOHARI.. : Oh…that’s a simple one. The answer is 1111.
    QUESTION.. : Ladies & Gentlemen, may we now take a commercial break. The General’s answer has made our transmitters to begin to overheat. We’ll be back in a moment….

    • 100%9jaPikin

      Why don’t you bear your own names? Or at least stop using Yoruba names, idiots. Your write ups smells Otuoke.

  • Progress

    Empty bragado, ONLY TWO questions will send Jona into gaffes and spinning:

    1. Is STEALING in not corruption? What do you meant by jailing Nwobodo for stealing money not enough to buy peugeot?
    2. Where is NNPC audit report on the missing $12.8 billions promised since Nov.?
    3. Why did you said you are not bothered about the BH menace because they are localised to opposition states?
    4. Why have you not spoken against the militants threat of war?
    5. Why is Angola, Gabon, E. Guinea currency is not in free fall like Naira despite being a mono-economy like Nigeria?
    6. Is number of jet indicative of development?

  • Larry4gudgovernment

    Just 2 questions will send GEJ crash like a pack of cards. 1. What happens to our foreign reserve, where is the missing $55 billion Dollars? 2.

How many OUTDATED LOCOMOTIVES HAVE YOU WASTED BILLIONS OF DOLLAR TO IMPORT FROM CHINA, RUSSIA AND INDIA WITH YOUR TRANSFORMATION AGENDA ACTUALLY WORKING IN THIS 21ST CENTURY? 10. HOW MANY ARMED ROBBERS, UNEMPLOYMENT AND SOCIAL VICES HAVE YOUR ADMINISTRATION COMBAT? 11. Mr President, Why are the world leader failed to identify with your administration because of corruption? 12. What happens to immigration scam, CASH FOR ARMS SCANDAL? GEJ that can’t answer Journalist correctly will be the one to floor GMB, I LAUGH. IT GOES ON AND ON

  • Oladoja wahab

    No wonder why GEJ’s hook under an umbrella of debate, because of the humiliation in the sreet rally. stoning here and there,please Apc accept the debate in the interest of excuse for the Pdp to take the president off the street rally and tell Nigerian that the president is on the preparation for the tv show …Debate. Is’nt it a tangible appology for Nigerian to watch their president on tv rather than street rally?

  • Ladidi Danlami

    You can’t give what you don’t have… If buhari has it, he should face Goodluck squarely in any debate…… The APC are only trying to hide the truth about their candidate. #GEJ4Naija

  • Mr Abayomi

    Hello Pastor Sunday,
    After reading your write up, now I understand why the church has lost its potency, and what now have in churches are just show business people as leaders, why would you tell Christians to go into politics, do you know what politics is? Do you even understand how politics works? The scriptures you have quoted have been largely miss applied, please show me who among the apostles became a politician, who among the Christians in acts of apostle became a politician, also please show me? Which world are you trying to save, I think where you have things mixed up, is that you have failed to understand the difference between the world (people) and the world as a system. This world is destined to go from bad to worse, but when we talk about the world, and letting your light shine, then you can apply the John 3:16, which is the world that God loved, that the people in this world, but the other world, that you are asking Christians to join and start competing for, as politicians, is the world which God has destined to perish, that is the world, the has the systems, and the evils of the world, 1 John 5:19. Stop deceiving Christians to go into politics, to do what, to become compromised like so many pastors and GOs have become, which of all the GOs that have gone close to the politicians has ever changed anything? You might refer to people like Daniel, Esther, Joseph, well, all those people why political appointees, and never politicians, there are great difference between them. Finally, if you think that Christians joining politics will make the coming of Jesus quicker, or produce righteousness, or make healing and miracles, and deliverance happen, then you have things mixed up, I personally think that it is our jobs as believers to contend for the kingdom of God, and do exactly as Jesus did and said. John 18:36 “Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.” and John 6:14- “Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did, said, This is of a truth that prophet that should come into the world. 15 When Jesus therefore perceived that they would come and take him by force, to make him a king, he departed again into a mountain himself alone.”
    My advice is that people like you should stop misleading Christians to go into politics, please let us concentrate on the things of the kingdom, without the distraction of politics look how bad things have gone in the churches. Thanks

    • Clemzy Clement

      Hi Mr Abayomi. When you say lets concentrate on the things of the kingdom what do you mean? What are the things of the kingdom?

  • Jack Daniels

    I have a few questions for pastor Adelaja. What political party should Christians join so that they can change the nation for good? Is it APC? Or PDP? Or should they form another political party like Christian Progressive Party CPC for instance as an example? Meanwhile pls consider the following scriptures below:

    Acts 6:1-5

    Now in those days, when the number of the disciples was multiplying, there arose a complaint against the Hebrews by the Hellenists,[a]because their widows were neglected in the daily distribution. 2 Then the twelve summoned the multitude of the disciples and said, “It is not desirable that we should leave the word of God and serve tables.3 Therefore, brethren, seek out from among you seven men of goodreputation, full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business; 4 but we will give ourselves continually to PRAYER AND THE MINISTRY OF THE WORD.”

    • Mr Abayomi

      Dear Jack

      I wonder O, this is how they have destroyed the integrity of the church with their misguided uses of the word of God, when a pastor has lost the conviction and calling of the master, he will try so many things, and one of them is popularity and worldly ventures, that is the reason most of them can only tell you about management, administration, and finance, and not the kingdom of God, I am still waiting for anyone of them to show me where heaven has told us to engage in active politics, these people are problem to the church, they are the ones who promote carnality, and worldly gains. They are not bothered that politicians no longer are afraid of the prophets of God, because the prophets of God have become businessmen, no man that wars entangles himself with the affairs of this world, I lived in London when Pastor Sunday came and was promoting millionaires club, I cried for him then, because I could understand that he had lost relevance and approval from heaven, and was now seeking it from men, would Elijah have become a senator, or Obadiah have become a Governor, because this people knew their callings and they enjoyed it, and stayed with, please men of God stop distracting us, with your subtle world messages.
