Hours after declaring his presidential ambition, the Northern Christians Movement (NCM) has warned certain spiritual and political leaders to be wary of the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, whom it predicted would betray anyone that has been instrumental to his achievements.
The Movement gave the warning in a statement issued by its President, Rev. Jonah Omera in Abuja on Thursday, noting that Professor Osinbajo’s Monday morning online declaration rather unveiled him as a serial betrayal.
The statement said Professor Osinbajo’s eventual declaration is an insult to the intelligence of Nigerians and a slap on their faces especially when he initially denied having such ambition, pointing out that such devious behaviour points to a government that would thrive on being dubious if the electorates ever made the mistake of making him president.
It expressed bewilderment that “Osinbajo, who identifies as a pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, did not see anything wrong in disregarding the kind of mentor/mentee relationship that existed between Apostle Paul and Timothy, because he failed to replicate this kind of relationship between himself as his benefactor, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, whom Osinbajo betrayed and dishonoured as a mentor through his declaration for the same office that his former boss is aspiring to.
“It is well known that Professor Osinbajo is banking on votes from the 12 million members strong Redeemed Church, but we found it pertinent to warn its General Overseer, Pastor Enoch Adeboye that Osinbajo like Peter will betray him three times before the end of 2023 if elected President of Nigeria.
“As sure as this is the symbolic Holy Week that Judas Iscariot betrayed Jesus Christ, the Vice President will betray Pastor Adeboye the same way he did to Asiwaju Tinubu.
