Comrade Timi Frank, on Monday, commended the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, for leading a “prayer walk” against the insecurity in the country.


In a statement in Abuja, Frank said it will amount to a breach of agreement for the government to sack the current Service Chiefs because “the powers that be are directly benefiting from the corruption in the military.”


He urged the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) not to relent but to mobilise more Christian leaders to join the likes of Pastor Adeboye on the streets, as a “one off protest is not enough.”


The Bayelsa-born political activist also lauded Sheik Gumi for speaking against the cluelessness of the APC and called on other Islamic leaders to join the fray, warning that the situation might get worse if religious leaders fail to speak.


“Nigerians must forget religious sentiments at this period. Muslim and Christian leaders need to come together and speak out loudly because it is only in the atmosphere of peace that anybody can practice his or her religious faith,” he said.

Frank called on traditional rulers to join Christian and Muslim leaders to “tell the failed federal government led by Buhari to step aside if the administration cannot protect the people any longer.”


He insisted that despite the trillions of Naira allegedly expended on the military by the APC’s administration in the last four years, “the dreaded Boko Haram is still more vicious and appearing to be outwitting the Nigerian military.


“The Service Chiefs and the APC’s government will be questioned by the International Criminal Court (ICC) one day to give account of how these monies were mismanaged while Nigerians died avoidable deaths and untold hardship,” he said.


Frank, however called on all the regional leaders to emulate the South-west by setting up security outfits capable of protecting their people instead of relying on the failing national security architecture.


“I call on my South-south leaders, South-east leaders, North-central, North-east and North-west governors to urgently consider what they can do to protect the lives and property of their people and not rely on the central government anymore,” he said.


On the recent U.S. visa ban on Nigerians, Frank said General Buhari’s negligence and obvious corruption in the military which has left the insecurity to degenerate are responsible for the action.


He however called on the United States Government to review the ban in the interest of innocent Nigerians.


“I have to make it clear that Donald Trump’s administration does not hate Nigerians but it hates injustice, human rights abuse, non-adherence to the rule of law, lack of freedom of speech and all manners of impunity and corruption under the General Buhari-led government,” he said.


He also appealed to the international community to come to the aid of innocent Nigerians now confronted by unnecessary attacks and killings on a daily basis.
