Lead Bishop of Worldwide Anglican Church (WAC) in Nigeria, Bishop Seun Adeoye has described the recent ban of Twitter by President Muhammadu Buhari, as part of his Jihad agenda.
The leader and founder of Sufficient Grace and Truth Ministry (SGTM) and the spokesman of World Bishops Council (WBC), Africa, in a statement released in Okinni, Osun State on Tuesday condemned the action of the President.
He stressed that the action against Twitter was targeted towards Buhari’s Islamist and Fulanisation agenda.
According to him, the president and his cohorts only hid behind tweets by some elements to hammer over 40 million citizens using Tweeter’s platform as means of communication.
“Let’s look at the sequence of events since the ban. First, it was the Attorney-General of the Federation, himself a jihadist who issued a threat of prosecution against anyone who dare the ban to use Twitter.
“Secondly, few days after we read about the Fulani’s attack on Igangan, a Yoruba settlement and just few days ago, there was a massive protest in Kano supporting Buhari’s action on Twitter.
“We need to read the line correctly. Since the pronouncement of the ban by the Minister of Information, Lai Muhammed, who is an accomplice in this matter, did you hear any prominent figure from the North speaking against Twitter ban?
“Did we read anything from the prolific writer and Professor who was the head a group called MURIC saying anything? No. The reason was that Buhari was only carrying out part of their demonic agenda.
“The gospel of Jesus is about communication and not about carrying swords or engaging in war and Twitter is one of the effective means of doing so.
“Just as millions of members of RCCG, Deeper Life, Winners Chapel and a host of other ministries were denied access to their members, I was also unable to communicate with several of other Bishops across the world as we planned towards the Centenary Celebration of WAC this year,” he explained.
The Osun-based cleric cautioned Buhari, warning him and his cabinet to stop fighting against God by his actions.
“I hope the president will listen and remember that it takes nothing from God to remove him from office if He so wishes.
“Therefore, President Buhari should within seven days and reverse his decision and unsuspend Twitter. If not, some of us will go on our knees and ask God to do the needful. Buhari should not put the gospel of Christ in chain,” he noted.
Bishop Adeoye praised Pastor Enoch Adeboye and Pastor Williams Kumuyi who relied on the United Nations article which Nigeria is a signatory to by totally rejecting the Islamic agenda of President Buhari over the Twitter ban.
“We are therefore waiting patiently for the next move of the Buhari-led government to see what he intends to do to these fathers of faith, he added.
