Publisher of the daily devotional booklet, Our Daily Manna, Bishop Chris Kwakpovwe has dismissed belief that President Muhammadu Buhari is Nigeria’s messiah.
“President Buhari is not the messiah; he is only preparing the way for the messiah who will eventually emerge. Buhari is like the John the Baptist. As a politician, Buhari will bring about some changes if he maintain his integrity and genuinely probe those he ought to probe,” Bishop Kwakpovwe said in an interview his ministry’s annual world anointing service scheduled for next Friday at the Tafawa Balewa Square TBS, Lagos.
“The messiah who will genuinely transform our country will emerge. Buhari is not the messiah but we should be hopeful that one day, we will sing a new song,” he stated.
Speaking further, the cleric, who said he believes in the unity of Nigeria, argued that the peace of the country has enjoyed since after the Nigerian Civil War should not be broken by digging up residues of hate.
He, therefore, enjoined all the pro-Biafra protesters to tread with caution, sheathe their swords and dialogue with constituted authorities on issues that would bring about unity, peace and progress of the country.
“There is nothing like Biafra. Biafra is like thick cloud without water or rain. There will be no civil war, our brothers in the South East will enjoy President Muhammadu Buhari. They should just allow peace to reign. Whatever challenges, disagreements that may have re-surfaced, are not beyond our collective ability to resolve,” the Bishop said.
