The Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Babachir Lawal, has accused Christians of fueling rumours about President Buhari’s health on social media.
THE NATION reports that the SGF said this during a Prayer Convocation for Nigeria on Mount Zion, Jerusalem, to conclude the 2016 pilgrimage. 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 added that it was appalling to see Christians complain about the Federal Government despite occupying prominent positrons in the government.
“Churches have gone into overdrive praying for a Christian president to take over, glad that the President never returns so that our vice president and acting President continues because, according to them, the economy is doing better under him.
“So while in church, I know what the church is saying. I have sat through a sermon where the pastor sought to attack me for supporting Buhari as a candidate.”
