Adeboye & Buhari in London
Less than 48 hours before the return of President Muhammadu Buhari to Nigeria, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Alhaji Kawu Baraje, on Sunday, said the visit of
Pastor Enoch Adeboye, indicated that Buhari may have succumbed to the advice of the cleric and that of his doctors to return home, adding that it shows that Buhari is not a religious bigot.
While speaking in an interview in Ilorin, the capital of Kwara State, on the sidelines of the graduation of pupils of Baraje Centre for Arabic and Islamic Studies, Baraje also said the General Overseer of Redeemed Christian Church of God, Adeboye’s visit to Buhari also proved a political point.
He said, “I don’t see the visit of Pastor Adeboye as being special. If at all, I would say that it is only proving one point wrong, politically, that is the assumption that Buhari is a religious bigot.
“So, if somebody of Pastor Adeboye’s calibre can take six-hour flight and go to see President Buhari and, within 48 hours, Buhari came home, then it is speaking a different thing about what some people are saying that Buhari is a religious bigot.
“Maybe he has now finally succumbed to the advice of not only his doctors but to the spiritual advice of Pastor Adeboye. So, I think the development is a very good one.”
