      Serious ode.
      He is still denying that he doesn’t understand what is happening. Instead of him to apologize and confess his sins and ask for forgiveness.
      He his claiming that God called him. Nobody called him but himself.

      For all those who will come and say touch not my annointed and do my prophet no harm……….. News flash……… by virtue of our baptism as Christians we are all anointed by God and therefore preachers/prophets of God.

    Eeeehhhhmmmm, leave of absence suggests temporary absence…iro lo kpa (Na lie)! You ain’t coming back to that pulpit or any other pulpit for that matter. You need to be led, you are not a leader. Feel free to ask God for forgiveness, that is what He has asked us to do, but you will face the consequences of your action and/or actions (because I am sure more people will come out). Don’t think this one will be swept under carpet as has been done in the past. Ani se, you will be the one that will be the example other perverts will remember when next they think about inappropriately touching any female or male (men too are abused).

    Not just to step aside, he has to go permanently. He has bring the whole COZA into disrepute. From all the allegations that has surfaced so far, it appears that some of the other members of the board have covered up this atrocities. When such allegations (rape & Coercion) are made which are criminal offences. They should be reported to the police, no if or but. The place requires a root and branch reform. Again, what action the government is taking on the matter. This is reflecting and telling badly on Osibajo. The public and the whole world needs to know the government stands, in other to assure the world that Naija is open for business and tourism, etc and secured for their populace to visit. Period.
