Bishop Francis Wale Oke, the presiding Bishop of The Sword of the Spirit Ministries, Ibadan, has admitted praying that God removes President Muhammadu Buhari.
The cleric who was speaking at his church’s vigil yesterday said Buhari has failed woefully.
Oke said even during the civil war, Nigeria did not witness as many killings as is the case today.
The preacher, who is also the National President of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), called for the removal of the President if that would pave the way for desired peace in the country.
He said: “Some wicked people kidnapped some students and demanded N800m for their release; then killed them.
“The government could not lift a finger and you are telling me that the President has not failed? Buhari has failed!”
“For the first time, I have found myself praying that God should remove Buhari. They kidnapped students without the government doing anything and you are telling me that the government has not failed?
“Are you saying we can not move against an incompetent government whose security apparatus has collapsed?”
He added: ”I am not afraid of anybody. I am not! I am the prophet of the Most High, He watches over me. No bullet of the enemy can kill me; I can’t die in the hands of a man.”
