Let Yar’Adua be, cleric pleads with Nigerians


A cleric, Pastor Emmanuel Ejeye has urged Nigerians to allow President Umaru Yar’Adua complete his four-year tenure in office.

A cleric, Pastor Emmanuel Ejeye has urged Nigerians to allow President Umaru Yar’Adua complete his four-year tenure in office.

Ejeye, senior pastor, Green Pastures Assembly stressed in a press statement entitled: Nation at Precipice, that in the interest of national stability, Yar’Adua, who himself had faulted the election that brought him into office, should be allowed to stay on and prove that Nigerians did not err.

Pastor Ejeye urged the nation to pray against danger that may follow the ongoing attempt by opposition candidates to over turn Yar’Adua’s election at the presidential election tribunal.
The cleric revealed that he had a vision on November 24 in which the country was plunged into panic and disorder.

“Because of the enormity of the impending danger as revealed to me by God, I am persuaded to bring this revelation to the attention of the nation so that all Nigerians can go into individual, as well as corporate prayers to avert a situation which, if not addressed, promptly will result in a costly catastrophe from which no Nigerian family, no matter how high or low, will be immune,” Ejeye said.
The Green Pastures Assembly senior pastor advised the tribunal handling petitions to be cautious in handling the petitions involving the presidency to save the nation from avoidable crisis.

Ejeye said, “if presidential election is annulled and Yar’Adua is asked to go, in his unassuming nature, he will promptly pack his bags and vacate Aso Rock, perhaps more with a sense of relief than a sense of loss, and by his respect for the rule of law and philosophy as characterized by his non intervention stance during the Etteh saga, having vacated the seat, he will distance himself from any form of involvement in setting a new order.

“By his exit, a scenario will be created in which the legislature recently held to ransom by an Etteh and still fighting for credibility may not be able to hold its own.”
He added, “with so many Abacha’s types and other opportunistic elements on the sidelines still sulking loss of financial and political power they once had, or those hanging to taste such powers for the first time, your guess as to what will happen next is as good as mine.”
