Alhaji Kawu Baraje, chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC yesterday said the visit of Pastor Enoch Adeboye, General Overseer, Redeemed Christian Church of God, less than 48 hours before the return of President Muhammadu Buhari to Nigeria, indicated that he may have listen to the advice of the cleric.
He also said it shows that Buhari is not a religious bigot.
“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,” he said.
