A Youth Pastor with the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Dr. Oche Otorkpa has called on the church to sack its Head of Politics and Governance, Pastor Timothy Olaniyan over a comment he made about the Vice President,Yemi Osinbajo.
Pastor Olaniyan had at the weekend campaigned for Osinbajo , telling a congregation of the church that the Vice President, remained the only child of God and a pastor that could change the narrative of governance in Nigeria.
“I was saddened when my attention was drawn to the statement credited to the Head of Politics and Governance of the Redeemed Christian Church, RCCG, Pastor Timothy Olaniyan”, said Otorkpa.
“This fact reminds me of the tragedy promoted by many of my colleagues in the Redeemed Christian Church of God, who used RCCG altar to promote Buhari as the only saviour of Nigeria because Osinbajo also a Redeemed Pastor,was his running mate”, he submitted.
Meanwhile,this remark by Pastor Timothy Olaniyan of RCCG about the VP being the saviour of the country, has been wildly criticized by Nigerians on the various social media platforms.
In one of the posts, a Facebook user, Ibrahim said Osinbajo has proven to be inefficient as a leader by his inability to redeem the economy that he has been in charge of since he assumed office.
He wrote, ” Is he not part of this collapsed regime? The Vice President is in charge of the economy and yet we are suffering.
” We all keep blaming Buhari here and there. What about him? He should have resigned when he knows that they can’t allow him to perform.
” Now tell me, how would he perform as a president when he can’t even fight the state of the economy right from first term till date?”, He queried.
