A founder of the Omega Fire Ministries, Apostle Johnson Suleman, has said he never predicted the winner of the 2018 Ekiti governorship election, contrary to reports.
Suleman also berated Lauretta Onochie, President Muhammadu Buhari’s media aide, for attacking him over comments he allegedly made concerning the election.
Onochie had alleged, after the All Progressives Congress won the poll, that the clergyman was not in a right standing with God.
However, Suleman described Buhari’s aide’s comment as capable of dragging the Presidency “into the gutters.”
”It is common knowledge that the quality of media management in the nation’s presidency has taken a nosedive since President Muhammadu Buhari took office, but the presidency hit a new low on Sunday when Onochie threw all pretences to the wind to rubbish a man of God with her unguarded vituperations and outright spewing of hate,” the clergyman said in a statement.
He said “even if a primary school pupil had written that tweet, the lies told therein could not have been so recklessly blatant and so devoid of any shred of professionalism.”
Suleman wondered if it was not “unbecoming that a presidential spokesperson is propagating an unverified report?
“Apostle never made the purported statement being credited to him at any fora and I challenge her to provide a contrary source to the one I just mentioned or produce any shred of evidence to support her claim.
”But we hasten to say that we sympathize with Lauretta Onochie as we know that life itself has not been fair to her. Our appeal is that she should not vent her frustration with the church.
“The other day, it was the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) that she attacked, today, it is Omega Fire Ministries. Who knows which Church is next?
“After careful examination, we think that Lauretta Onochie is burdened by the challenges of life and is gradually going off her rocker.
“If not, why should anybody in his or her right frame of mind, not even a presidential aide, sit down in one corner of his or her room, pick up a fable on social media and then begin to broadcast it on social media?”
