COVID-19: Controversial Nigerian Clergyman, Apostle Chris Omashola slams President Mohammed Buhari and the Nigerian Government over Neglect


In a short interview with strokesafrica.com, the outspoken Senior Pastor and General Overseer Of The Zionwealth Church, Lekki, Lagos called out President Muhammadu Buhari over

the sparse measures that have been set in place, so far, by the government, towards assuaging the effects of the COVID-19 Pandemic Lockdown.

Since the right of the poor Nigerian to fend for themselves has been taken away by the Federal Government due to the Lockdown, it is therefore the responsibility of the Government to help out which they’ve obviously ignored, therefore Allah will hold them responsible for untold and unbearable suffering and frustration Nigerians are currently going through.

President Buhari should do something quickly. Nigerians are crying, frustrated and hungry.

“In an unjust and unfair society like ours, where the rights of the poor masses are constantly abused, undermined and taken for granted, where the average citizens are deprived of their rights, wellness and citizenry privileges…SILENCE IS A SIN! We’re all equal in the eyes of the Almighty Creator. Nigerians are been taken for granted, Let’s not keep quiet” -ACO

Mr. Omashola, a prolific writer and media pr expert who doubles as the CEO of both ACO Media PR Consultants and Kevwe Autos Ltd, stated that the Government has, so far, proven to be highly insensitive to the plights of the average Nigerian, in this season, stressing that Nigerians are begging for what, ideally, should be their basic right.

The Man of God was incensed at the fact that billions of naira have been donated to Nigeria, from both local and international philanthropists and bodies, towards easing the strain caused by the lockdown and the pandemic as a whole, yet, no tangible measures have been set in place by the government, to that effect.

According to Apostle Omashola,

“whatsoever you give to the greedy, will never get to the needy. Nigerian pastors and business men, who obviously are not collecting our tax, have affected more lives during these trying times, than the so-called Nigerian politicians. I hope Nigerians can see that the government has no tangible plan for them. NCDC bombards us with cautionary SMS’s instead of credit alerts to meet actual needs. It has become increasingly clear that the government is wicked and corrupt.”

Pastor Omashola went on to say that the Nigerian government has made more money from the Coronavirus pandemic donations, than any other country in Africa, yet Nigerians are dying off, everyday, from ‘hunger virus’ and lack of basic amenities that support general wellness.

“I know everyone wants to be diplomatic and politically correct, but, Nigerian citizens have been scarred by the sheer wickedness and tyranny of the government. Someone has to speak up for the OPPRESSED! I do, willingly, lend my voice.

You can’t even begin to imagine the plight of Nigerians, who have been observing the lockdown for weeks now, with inadequate preparations, and little or no input from the government.

Even though many Nigerians have cried out on social media, about light and water challenges, in this time, their cries seem to have fallen on deaf ears. Can you imagine?”

The Man of God complained about the Inflation in prices of commodities, in Nigeria, and the major scarcity in the makeshift markets, and most of all, about the governments lack of concern.

“Even though I am a friend to the Presidency, I will not compromise my conscience. This Government is wicked, abusive and satanic.

The responses so far of Femi Adesina, Lauretta Onochie, Shehu Garba and most notorious Lai Mohammed are an insult to the intelligence of the Nigerian populace.

The issue of 5G, Coronavirus, Antichrist, and all the many conspiracy theories are obvious plots to distract us from the real conspiracy and Antichrist-ism in Government. Nigerians are truly being taken for granted by their sick and wicked leader; with inadequate prior information and support, they have been detained in their homes, and left to die of hunger, GOD FORBID! as if they’re the cause of the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Apostle Omashola also expressed his gratitude to philanthropists and men of God, who have contributed generously, towards the welfare of Nigerians.

“Even though public giving is not my style, God bless the likes of Aliko Dangote, Femi Otedola, Rabiu Abdulsamad, Mike Adenuga, Tony Elumelu and other businessmen and philanthropists, for their kindness to fellow Nigerians.

Kudos to Nigerian pastors like Bishop David Oyedepo, Prophet Jeremiah Fufeyin, Apostle Johnson Suleman, Dr Paul Enenche, Pastor David Ibiyeomie, Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo and others, for portraying the compassionate and generous nature of God, by making much-needed donations, as well”.

He didn’t end there!

“I make bold to call on the Nigeria Government to assist Nigerians financially nationwide no matter how small just to show that they are humans and not robots.”
