Aisha Yesufu slams Pastor Kumuyi for comments on disrespecting failed leaders

Aisha Yesufu, Social Activist has slammed the General Overseer of Deeper Life Bible Church, Pastor W.F. Kumuyi, over his comment on political leaders.

Kumuyi had said it is wrong for “genuine believers” to disrespect political leaders over their seeming failure to keep electoral promises.

The cleric said this on Monday in a post on his Facebook page in response to Dapo Asaju, vice-chancellor of the Ajayi Crowther University and a bishop of the Church of Nigeria, who had recently spoken on the need for clerics to speak more on national issues.

“We teach that if you’re a genuine believer in Christ, you wouldn’t hate your neighbour. Nor would you disdain those in power because they appear not to be delivering on electoral pledges such that you would go on the rampage, destroying government property or pillaging the public till,” Kumuyi’s post reads in part.

And reacting to this on Twitter, Aisha Yesufu said, “Religious rulers in Nigeria are worse than the political rulers. They keep the people enslaved.

“They also need bad governance to sell cheap miracles and power points. Until you free people from the clutches of their mallams, pastors, dibias, babalawos & boka nothing will change.”

Pastor Kumuyi has never been a vocal figure in terms of speaking about or against bad leadership and failures for successive governments in Nigeria.

Sometime in 2018, Pastor Kumuyi and his wife visited President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa before the 2019 presidential election.
