Pastor Adewale Giwa, the leader of Awaiting The Second Coming Of Christ Ministry, on Thursday claimed that the British colonized Nigeria for the Fulanis.
Giwa said Nigerians should unite and demand freedom from Fulani people. The pastor, who is based in Akure, Ondo State said this in a message to celebrate Nigeria at 60.
The message titled: “Nigeria was colonized for Fulani,” reads: “
Let me wish the Fulani people in Nigeria a Happy Independence Day. There is no light in Nigeria because the truth is lost. Darkness has taken over Nigeria just like the cities of Naphtali and Zebulum in Matthew 4:15-16.
“We need the truth to illuminate whatever darkness that is holding us back. We can’t progress if we have not discovered that late Fredrick Lugard joined Nigeria together by force for Northerners. They have failed to review our Constitution; they promised to restructure Nigeria but failed despite our earnest pleadings. No true Federalism where the powers of government are being divided among the National (Federal), State and Local Lovernment.
“We should stop deceiving ourselves in Nigeria and face the reality. I am disappointed in so many religious leaders who supposed to speak out for the oppressed. In 2 Chronicles 21:12, Prophet Elijah spoke out against King Jehoram, the son of Ahab.
“He wrote a letter, warning him the consequences of his action by leading the Israelites to sin just like President Muhammadu Buhari has led Nigerians into darkness. For how long are we going to be deceiving ourselves? If we are together, poverty would have become a thing of the past.
