Senior Pastor of House on The Rock Church, Pastor Paul Adefarasin has apologized to the Lagos State government after youths booed Gov Sanwo-Olu’s representative at The Experience on Friday night.
1st News had learned that Sanwo-Olu’s representative was booed on stage while giving his speech after he was introduced during ’The Experience’ held at the House on the Rock Cathedral, Lekki.
Adefarasin displeased with the crowd’s behavior, apologized to the Lagos State government on Sunday, December 5, describing the attitude as unscriptural.
He cautioned youths to pray for leaders in order for peace to reign in the country.
“I must honestly caution that we must pray for those who lead us that we may dwell peacefully in the land
“You must never disrespect authority because they beat the sword.
“I apologise to the leaders of Lagos state on your behalf,” Pastor Adefarasin said.
Meanwhile, a former Governor of Anambra State, Chukwuemeka Ezeife, has said that the South-East was ready to beg in order to get the opportunity to become Nigeria’s President come 2023.
Ezeife made this assertion during the United for Better Nigeria Initiative National Convention in Abuja on Saturday, December 4.
According to the elder statesman, it was the right time for Ndigbo to produce the next President of the country.
He, however, pointed out that Presidency is not given to anyone; but people have to work and show that they really merit the position.
Ezeife noted that one of the ways to put a South Easterner in power come 2023; was for the region to swallow its pride and start begging every other region for the presidential seat.
“So I found Hausa, Yoruba, Igbo, and other groups in this place talking about the need for federal character. If you do it that way, there will be unity, if there is fairness, equity, justice, you will have unity and progress,” he said.
“In the absence of those, you see where we are now. It is not a matter of to give us president; we don’t give, you have to work for it, the Igbo does not prostrate.”
