Apostle Johnson Suleman, Fiery preacher and Senior Pastor of Omega Fire Ministry has declared that the Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, is already dead for insisting on the religious bill prohibiting public preaching in the state.
Suleiman, had in his recent messages warned El-Rufai not to pass the ‘license for preaching in Kaduna State’ into law or he would die.
But El-Rufai, in his response said Suleiman should tell him the exact date of his death, bearing in mind that death is irrevocable.
“If that apostle is truly an apostle, he should mention the day I will die. There is nothing in that law that prevents or infringes the practice of religion. It seeks to ensure that those that preach religion are qualified, trained and certified by their peers to do it,” El-Rufai had said.
However Suleiman, in his latest message, said: “Pray for the plan of the enemies, those in authority, to turn Nigeria to a country of one religion; it will not work. I said something sometime back about one governor that is trying to Islamise Kaduna, he said he want to put a bill to try and control preaching and the reason he wants to do that is because of the Islamic uprising i.e. the issues of insurgency in the Islamic world.
“I do not fight with the government of the Kaduna state, it’s too small to fight with me.
“If you want to correct your people, correct your people; we don’t have problem with Christians and if you want to balance your people, balance your people; we don’t have problem with Christians and the man said I should give him the day of his death.
“You are dead already, ask for the day of your burial. I don’t give date for death but I can give date for burial.”
