Achieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Alhaji Kawu Baraje, on Sunday said the visit of the General Overseer, Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, less than 48 hours before the return of President Muhammadu Buhari to Nigeria, indicated that he may have paid heed to the advice of the cleric and that of his doctors to return home .
He also said it shows that Buhari is not a religious bigot.
Baraje spoke in Ilorin, Kwara State, on the sidelines of the graduation of pupils of Baraje Centre for Arabic and Islamic Studies.
“I don’t see the visit of Pastor Adeboye as being special. If at all, I would say that it is only proving one point wrong, politically, that is the assumption that Buhari is a religious bigot.
“So, if somebody of Pastor Adeboye’s calibre can take six-hour flight and go to see President Buhari and, within 48 hours, Buhari came home, then it is speaking a different thing about what some people are saying that Buhari is a religious bigot.
“Maybe he has now finally succumbed to the advice of not only his doctors but to the spiritual advice of Pastor Adeboye. So, I think the development is a very good one,” he said
