The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Kaduna State chapter yesterday disclosed that the state Governor, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai, does not speak like a leader. CAN statement is coming on the heels of the reports credited to el-Rufai that even if he picks the Pope as a running mate, Christians in the Southern part of the state would not vote for him during the elections.
Commenting on the issue, the state’s newly elected Chairman of CAN, Revd Joseph Hayab, told Saturday Telegraph that a leader cannot speak the way el-Rufai speaks. Hayab also noted that the governor won election by the votes of all Kaduna residents, Muslims and Christians, and wondered why he should be dividing the state. He advised him to seek help either in any Kaduna hospital or abroad to enable him speak properly. “This man did not become governor just by exclusively Muslim votes; he became governor by the votes of Kaduna people.
This is not even about campaigns; it shows that he has a problem. We can only sympathise with him and I want Christians and Muslims to come out and pray for God to save him because he does not even understand what politics is all about.” Bishop Oscar Ossai, Senior Pastor, City of Refuge Ministries International, Lagos, has also said the story and his view is that el-Rufai is a careless talker.
He said that the governor had better go and appeal to his constituents and win their favour. “Instead of accepting that he has lost the people that he is supposed to lead, he is trying to turn it into a religious crisis. The governor has lost his people. “He cannot just take the name of the Pope like that, but he’s a careless talker. He cannot mention the name of the Pontiff carelessly. “In the very first place, the Pontiff, as far as protocols are concerned worldwide, is the head of ambassador nuncio in any nation in the world.
“The Pope’s representative in this nation is the ambassador number one. So, to talk about the Pope like that, is a careless way of talking. We church leaders take an exception to such commentary,” the bishop said.
Also, Rev. Charles Ikanem of Christ Delivers Apostolic ministry, who doubles as the provincial media director of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), said el-Rufai was write in his statement as, according to him, “it won’t happen because he has a bias mind against the Christians and he shouldn’t expect them to vote for him.” Ikanem said: “I believe he has said the right thing; I don’t think any Christian will like to bring him in. He knows that he has always been against the Christians, so, he is right to have said that nothing will make them vote for him.”
