Kadzai hurled the abuse in a statement he released yesterday to react to claim allegedly made by Babachir that Christians are fueling rumuors about President Buharis’ health.

He admonished Babachir to stop making false, unguarded and inciting statement about Christians.

The statement reads, “We wish to state categorically that the SGF, Mr. Babachir has no ecclesiastical authority to speak for his church (ECWA) or the Christian community. Let him not be deceived by his position in government as equal to a spiritual leader speaking for the Christians.

“Though the church or Christian leadership may out of grace not excommunicate the SGF, the entire Christian youths frown at and dissociate themselves from the misleading claims by the SGF that, Christians are fueling rumors about President Buharis’ health.

“The SGF does not need to play to the gallery in pleasing his mentors and political sponsors by denying his kit and kin’s of same faith. “Christians must not be taken for granted. For the benefit of doubt, it might interest Mr. Babachir and his likes to know that ALL Christian leaders, Churches, Ministries and Para-church organisations have been praying for the health of Mr. President (Buhari) both in Sunday worship services, midweek fellowships and night vigil worships.

“We wonder what the SGF, Mr. Babachir seeks to achieve by claiming that Christians are responsible for fuelling the rumours concerning Mr. Presidents’ health? Babachir as a Christian knows the Bible instruction to Christians to pray for ALL those in position of authority.

“Let us remind the SGF that ours is not a religion that imposes leadership or compulsive followership and that “He that troubleth his house shall inherit winds”(Prov.11:29).”
