Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Babachir David Lawal, has accused Christians of fueling rumors about President Muhammadu Buhari’s health on social media.
He said this during a Prayer Convocation for Nigeria on Mount Zion, Jerusalem, to conclude the 2016 pilgrimage.
Lawal accused Christians of criticizing Muslims for pursuing their agenda instead of them to pursue their own agenda.
The SGF, in a statement issued by Head of Media, Nigeria Christian Pilgrims Commission (NCPC), warned Christians to desist from what he described as “pull him down syndrome.”
He said it was appalling to see Christians complain about the Federal Government despite occupying prominent positions in the government.
The Executive Secretary of the NCPC, Rev. Tor Uja, pilgrims decided to hold a one-day prayer in Jerusalem for the restoration and perfection of President Buhari’s health.
Uja said having an honest man like Buhari to lead the country is an opportunity Nigerians should not miss.
He stressed that a nation like Nigeria with all the symbols of greatness could only be built to last by those who have been established on the enduring virtues of Christ.
He urged Christians to live up to their calling in Christ and lead by example in being strategic in their reasoning and planning.
“I feel sad that people come on pilgrimage and when they leave here, their character is even worse. I want you to make up your mind that you won’t deny Jesus Christ,” he said.
