Kaduna Pastor To Give El-Rufai His Burial Date – A pastor in Kaduna, Apostle Suleiman, has told the state governor Nasir El-Rufai that he is already a dead man.
This is over El-Rufai’s desire to pass an anti-preaching bill, which would ban religious preaching in public. It wouldn’t be the first threat Suleiman had aimed at El-Rufai, with the governor seemingly not bothered.
“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.
In response to this, Suleiman stated that he’d provide the governor with a date of burial because he was already dead.
He 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.”
