I Quit A Church Because Pastor Always Attacked Buhari – Femi Adesina

Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, said he stopped attending a church in Abuja because the pastor was constantly criticizing President Muhammadu Buhari.

This was said by Adesina in a post published on Thursday titled “This Kumuyi is Simply Different,” which was written in support of a declaration made by Pastor William Kumuyi, the General Superintendent of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry.

Despite the fact that Adesina did not specify which church he left, his online profile lists him as a member of the Foursquare Gospel Church, where he was consecrated a deacon.

In the article, the President’s spokesman wrote, “I used to attend a church in Abuja from 2015 to 2018, till the pastor began to see himself as someone who must bring the Buhari government down. Sunday after Sunday, it was all sorts of criticism from the pulpit. But I endured, since it was a branch of a church I had attended for over 30 years. Till one day, he overdid it.

“The Dapchi girls were abducted and there was no name the pastor did not call President Buhari that Sunday. It was horrendous that such things could come from the pulpit. But I suffered long and sat through the sermon, or rather, what was supposed to be a sermon. I then went home, wondering what the church of God was turning to.”

Adesina said after most of the Dapchi girls had been rescued, the pastor did not deem it fit to commend the President in subsequent service.

The President’s aide, however, praised Kumuyi for saying last week that Christians should not “disdain those in power because they appear not to be delivering on electoral pledges”.

He stated that while a former Vice-Chancellor of Ajayi Crowther University, Prof. Dapo Asaju, was within his rights to be angry over the state of the country, it must be noted that the Buhari regime was doing a lot to change the nation’s fortunes.

Adesina said there were some men of God who predicted that Buhari would lose the 2019 election but it turned out to be a fake prophecy.

“Irrespective of the titles they bear, I hear bishops, apostles, prophets, pastors, evangelists, cursing the government, and issuing doomsday notices. One even said publicly that the Buhari administration was over, before the 2019 elections. But the man won handsomely, and that preacher still struts and frets on the pulpit every week, not repenting in sackcloth and ashes,” the presidential spokesman added.
