Ademowo Eulogizes Buhari, Osinbajo

His Grace, the Most Rev. Dr. Ephraim Adebola Ademowo, Diocesan Bishop of Lagos and Dean Emeritus, Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) last week shocked many Nigerians when he came out openly to say that he was very happy when Gen. Muhammadu Buhari and Prof. Yemi Osinbajo won the 2015 general elections. He said he is one of the adherent followers of Buhari right from his military days as the former military head of states. Rev. Ademowo said he prayed and fasted for him to come out victorious. He said many people would be surprised that he prayed and fasted for him not minding that they are not of the same faith. He said competency should not be put on religious, ethnic or tribe. He said the Buhari he knows is a detribalized Nigerian, incorruptible and disciplined man.
It was while briefing journalists about the 3rd session of 32nd Synod of The Diocese of Lagos (Anglican Communion) in the conference room of the Archbishop’s palace, Marina Lagos. “The Buhari I know is like a straight ruler that you can never bend, when he was a military head of states, he had all opportunity to enrich himself just like those who took over from him siphoned our common wealth and starched them in foreign accounts, but because of his discipline nature he did not do that. He has passion for this country and I pray that God should give good health and wisdom to succeed”.
The Diocesan Bishop of Lagos further said politics is not a dirty game as many people believe but rather it is the way we play it in this part of world that makes it look dirty. “Some people will say politics is a dirty game, I don’t believe that, if it is a dirty game then we need to clean it up and play it by rules. Talking good Gen. Buhari does not mean am a card carrying member of All Progressives Congress, APC, no but am only exposing the good qualities of the man. The of corruption and indiscipline that has taking centre stage in our country will at least be tackled severely and if these two monsters are taking care of, other things will take shape”.
Meanwhile the Synod has come and gone, three papers were presented. The Rt. Rev. Dr. James Oladunjoye Bishop of Owo delivered the first paper, “The Holy Scriptures Our Constitution and Compass”. The second was delivered by the Bishop of Oyo, Rt. Rev. Dr. Williams Rotimi Aladekugbe titled “Projecting the Authority of the Scripture in the Family, Nation and the World and Imperative for the Church. The last paper “Faithfulness to God’s Word. A challenge for the Priest in a compromising World was taken by The Most Rev. Dr. Segun Okubadejo, The Archbishop of Ecclesiastical Province of Ibadan and Diocesan Bishop of Ibadan North.
