Popular plateau state-based clergyman, Prophet Isa El-Buba, on Thursday debunked comments made by Shehu Mahdi, a Kaduna-based businessman and activist , regarding Christians from Northern Nigeria.
In a trending clip generating reactions online, Mahdi was seen telling a gathering of people that Northerners and Muslims are always targeted when there is a crisis in the South.
Based on the claim, the activist urged northern Christians not to vote for the presidential candidate of the Labour party, Peter Obi, accusing him of being a Biafran.
Reacting on Thursday, Prophet El-buba, a northerner, called Madhi a “liar”, adding that he was currently ministering at a church program in the South.
“I want to make an address for one minute, there is one man called Mahdi Usman who spoke a few days ago and tried to speak lies against the Southern church and against the southerners.
“That we northerners that are Christians, we come to the south and we find it difficult to get a land to worship God.
“I want to say to you Mahdi Usman, you are a liar, that is not true, I am a northerner and I am preaching here in the south.
“And I want to say that it’s time up for the lies that some of you have been lying for 62 years, the end of your lies has come,” he said.
The Cleric urged northern Christians and northern Muslims to prove “these wicked men and women that your time is up.”
On his part, he asked his followers to vote for Peter Obi in the 2023 presidential election.
He added that it was part of his calling not to limit himself to the pulpit when Nigerians are suffering, he vowed to declare what he described as the “counsel of God” from the pulpit and move to the street if need be.
