Former Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Chief Timi Frank has lambasted Vice President Yemi Osinbajo for his purported silence over the suspension of Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Walter Nkanu Onnoghen.
In a statement he personally signed on Monday, Frank asked the General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye to sanction Osinbajo, who is a pastor in the church.
According to him, Osinbajo has continued to keep mute over perceived injustices being perpetrated by the present administration despite being a pastor and a professor of law.
He accused Osinbajo of keeping quiet as the Christian community in Nigeria is threatened because of his crave for political power.
Frank said that the Christian community was embarrased by Osinbajo’s condoning of “illegality” in the present government when it expected him to protect their interests, ensure justice, speak the truth and ensure that he is an ambassador of Christ in government.
He said that no one expected Osinbajo to defend Christians when they are guilty but to speak the truth whenever it is expected of him to do so, even to the government that he is a part of.
Frank said, “Pastor Adeboye should know that Osinbajo is misrepresenting the RCCG in government as one of the ordained pastors in the ministry, so he needs to be called to order.
“The word of God says that people rejoice when righteous is in power’ but can the same be said of Osinbajo and Buhari today?
“Pastor Osinbajo should respect his faith and not the power that be. Like biblical prophets; Isaiah, Ezekiah and others, Osinbajo should speak the truth and shame the devil because his fear of losing political power seems to have beclouded the Redeemed pastor.
“Disgracefully, at a time the whole world is waiting to hear Osinbajo’s opinion on the suspension of CJN, even as a lawyer he has suddenly gone quiet but if it is time to illegally buy votes through sharing of Trader Moni in the market, the Redeemed pastor will be in the forefront.”
