AMILOADED MEDIA HUB NEWS UPDATE
Reno Omokri, an aide to former president Goodluck Jonathan, has said that the bill by Senator Ned Nwoko proposing that Nigerians be authorised to bear arms for self-defence should be supported especially because the military is now overstretched.
Adeboye said: “The fire of God will consume all those trying to mess around with our traditional rulers in reaction to the killing of two traditional rulers in Ekiti State by gunmen suspected to be Fulani herders. Adeboye added that those trying to mess around with traditional rulers in the country would not know peace as the monarchs were anointed.
Disagreeing with the cleric, Reno on his X handle on Sunday, January February 4, wrote in part: “I am afraid I will have to strongly disagree with Pastor Adeboye. No “Fire of God will consume all those trying to mess around with our traditional rulers.
“The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God is a much loved and respected elder in the Lord. However, we cannot keep outsourcing to God what He has equipped us to deal with by ourselves. That is complacency and fatalism. And faith without works is dead!
“We call upon the God of Israel to deal with kidnappers and bandits. But Israel, whose God we call upon, calls upon their army to deal with their version of kidnappers and bandits.
“Miracles are for things we cannot do for ourselves. What was God’s response to Moses? “The LORD said to him, “What is that in your hand?”-Exodus 4:2.”
He emphasized that for Nigeria to achieve security, Nigerians must endorse Senator Ned Nwoko’s bill proposal to allow for the bearing of arms in self-defence.
He wrote: “If the Southwest and, indeed, the rest of Nigeria want security, we must all support Senator Ned Nwoko’s bill proposing that Nigerians be authorised to bear arms in self-defence. Because our gallant military is overstretched, we must now help them by stretching ourselves. That is better than calling for God to secure us when God gave us hands and trigger fingers.”
