Founder of The Redeemed Evangelical Mission, TREM, Bishop Mike Okonkwo has taken a swipe at ex-president Goodluck Jonathan during an interview he granted selected journalists in the run-up to his 70th birthday next month.
Bishop Okonkwo said the former president conducted the affairs of the nation as if evil put a spell on him.
“I will say the men of God, failed Jonathan. Because Jonathan was operating like somebody under some spell and we (the men of God) had the responsibility of taken him out of the spell, pray with him even for three days and whatever was holding him would have been removed.
“But we did not do that. Probably, he had the intention of doing the right thing but forces were against him and don’t forget he was not a matured christian. We would have taken him out and probably we would not be in this mess today,” Bishop Mike Okonkwo narrated.
