THE former chairman of Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, Lagos Chapter, and Presiding Bishop of El-shaddai Bible Church, Olanrewaju Obembe, has urged the president-elect, Muhammadu Buhari to be focused and avoid being derailed from pursuing the goal of building a virile country by charlatans, who are only interested in their selfish gains.

In a statement sent to The Guardian, Obembe noted that Buhari now has a collection of friends, who mill around him, giving spurious advice and insisting that he should go on vendetta mission. This, according to him, will only drag the wheel of progress in the country backwards.

He appealed to Buhari not to fall into the temptation of going after those who served in Jonathan’s administration without recourse to due process, saying service to Nigeria should not be criminalised.

“I have read some unfortunate commentaries asking that people such as Allison Madueke and Okonjo Iweala should be made to face the law. While those making such calls have a right to do so, I think General Buhari should not spend his time going after perceived enemies of the state without recourse to due process,” he said.
