Secretary to the Government of the Federation Babachir Lawal said Christians were fond of criticizing Muslims
He said it was appalling to see Christians condemn the government when they also occupy various positions in government
The Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Babachir Lawal, has warned Christians to desist from what he described as pull him down syndrome.
He claimed Christians were the ones fueling rumours about President Muhammadu Buhari’s health on social media, The Nation reports.
Lawal, in a statement issued by head of media of the Nigeria Christian Pilgrims Commission (NCPC), accused Christians of criticizing Muslims for pursing their agenda instead of them to pursue their own agenda.
He disclosed this on Mount Zion, Jerusalem, during a Prayer Convocation for Nigeria to conclude the 2016 pilgrimage.
Lawal, who was the special guest of honour at the prayer session, noted that Christians occupy various positions in government and yet complain about the federal government which according to him was appalling.
Also speaking, the executive secretary of the NCPC, Rev. Tor Uja, said pilgrims decided to hold a one-day prayer in Jerusalem for the restoration and perfection of President Buhari’s health.
He called on Nigerians not to miss this great opportunity of having an honest man like Buhari leading the country.
Uja advised Christians to keep living exemplary lives, adding that it was sad people come on pilgrimage and go back home worse.
“I feel sad that people come on pilgrimage and when they leave here, their character is even worse. I want you to make up your mind that you won’t deny Jesus Christ,” he said.
The focus of the Prayer Convocation for Nigeria which held on March 5, 2017, during the 2016 pilgrimage completion exercise was to pray for the president, the acting president and Nigeria as a whole.
Pilgrims from Rivers, Benue, Taraba, Adamawa, Enugu states and FCT converged on Mount Zion, Jerusalem, for the Prayer Convocation with the theme, ‘Building A Covenant Nation’.
