Adeleye tasks Buhari on next cabinet



The Archbishop and Bishop of Lagos Mainland, Methodist Church Nigeria, Diocese of Lagos Mainland, Most Rev. Obafemi Adeleye has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to choose the right people in his cabinet for his second term in office.

The cleric, who disclosed this during the service to mark the end of its 25th Synod of the Diocese, themed: “Obedience Is Better Than Sacrifice,” at the Hoare’s Memorial Methodist Cathedral, Sabo, Yaba, enjoined Buhari to put the right ministers in the right ministries, and that technocrats should be selected to turn around the country’s economy.

The Archbishop advised all elected officeholders to obey God, as well as the laws guiding the country, as with that, things will turn around for the betterment of Nigerians.

He said: “God demands obedience and there is no substitute for it. Those in authority must obey God first and in the course of doing that, things will go well for the country. If God says He is against stealing, they should not steal. If God says He is against killing, they should not kill. We must all obey the law of the land, to end the lingering impunity in the country.”

In his sermon, the guest preacher, the Archbishop of Igbobini, Most Rev. Olugbenga Fafeyiwa said God sees disobedience as more than refusal to carry out His commandments. Rather, it is equivalent to rebellion, which God does not tolerate.

He said: “We cannot obey partially as we try to eliminate sins in our lives. When one is not obedient to God, it is a sin and it is rebellion against God, which is the same thing as worshipping another god. He has commandments for us to follow. If we obey them, good, but if we refuse, it is a sin. Remember Saul was rejected by God as king because of his partial disobedience.”
