Boko Haram: Prove to us you are not a lame duck – Bishop Wale Oke dares Jonathan
Renowned cleric and founder of The Sword of the Spirit Ministries, Bishop Francis Wale Oke has called on President Goodluck Jonathan to prove his critics wrong if he’s not truly a weak and incompetent president in the fight against insurgents.
He urged him to let Nigerians known that they are not been led by weakling and lame duck by dealing decisively with the Islamic sect, Boko Haram for declaring a caliphate in Gwoza, Borno State.
The Apostle said it was shocking that since the insurgents captured Gwoza, the FG had not taken any decisive action in dealing with the situation and to make matters worse, about 480 soldiers escaped into another country.
The cleric said this ahead of the Holy Ghost convention, which begins on Sunday.
He stressed that the officers should not be blamed at all for their actions but the blame be put at the doorsteps of the authorities, adding that the incident was a big shame to the military and the nation.
“That some Islamic insurgents would be beheading Christians, take over 300 girls hostage, take over our churches and desecrate the sanctuary of God is totally unacceptable. You begin to ask the question, do we have a government in place? The government should show to us that it is capable of handling the situation”, he said.
As part of the church’s effort and men of God towards stemming the tide of insurgency in the country, he noted that Pastor Enoch Adeboye, Bishop David Oyedepo, Matthew Ashimolowo and other men of God would be at the convention to pray for the country so that God could smile on the country again.
He said, “The activities of the sect have shown that church is the primary target and as one of the leaders in Christianity, we say no. federal government should protest all its citizens especially the Christians who are being beheaded on daily basis by the hoodlums.
“If we, Christians are not posing any threat to the nation, then we deserve to be protected. For more than 48 hours, they had declared a caliphate and seized a portion of the entity called Nigeria and we are yet to hear any swift reaction from the government. This is very amazing,” he added.
