Prophet El-buba, a northerner, called Shehu Madhi a “liar”
“The General Overseer of the Evangelical Outreach Ministries International, Jos, Plateau State, Prophet Isa El-Buba, on Thursday debunked comments made by Shehu Mahdi, a Kaduna-based businessman and activist , regarding Christians from Northern Nigeria. In a video that has now gone viral and is generating reactions online, Mahdi was seen telling a gathering of people that Northerners are always targeted when there is a crisis in the South. Based on the claim, the activist urged northern Christians not to vote for the presidential candidate of the Labour party, Peter Obi, accusing him of being a Biafran.”
He said: “This is a message to my northern Christian brothers and sisters, it’s specifically for you. Why? Because if you go to the South-South, Southeast, or Southwest, a Christian from the Northern part of Nigeria is a northerner. “If there is a breakdown in Enugu, they kill everybody, whether a Muslim or Christian coming from the North. This is the record that is on the ground. Nobody can deny this. Christians of northern extraction, think wisely, behave, you have no business voting for a southern candidate based on Christianity.
At the end of the day, his agenda is not yours. His agenda is his own tribe. If you pick Obi, his agenda is not Christianity. He could be a categorical Catholic, he is a die-hard Biafran. If you vote Obi, you are voting for a Biafra. No mincing of the words. Tell me, a Christian from Taraba, Nasarawa, Kogi, Kwara, Kebbi, Kaduna, Sokoto, Bauchi, or Gombe, tell me the benefit you will derive by voting Obi and the answer is that there is none.” (Wondrous Nnaem The Whistler)
