Okotie joins Adeboye, Oyedepo, others in endorsing #EndSARS campaign

Pastor Chris Okotie

Senior pastor of the Household of God Church International Ministries Chris Okotie has described the #EndSARS campaign as a divine intervention to awaken the “moribund spirit of the Nigerian brotherhood”.

Okotie appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to be a “father now and not a commander-in-chief”.

“The current youth agitation must be construed in this context. It is an extra-terrestrial phenomenon. It is a divine intervention to resuscitate the moribund kindred spirit of the Nigerian brotherhood,” the former presidential candidate said in a release on Friday.

“To aver that this movement is politically motivated is to submit to jejune partisan stimuli emanating from a reprehensible perennial insensitivity.

“It is not directed against any political party. It is an altercation with the status quo; it is a vitilitigation against decades of leadership ineptitude and mediocrity. And now they have gone public.

“They bear witness now to the political imbalances and economic disequilibrium that have characterized the chequered pavement of our walk towards nationhood.

“…These young people are not rebellious dissidents. Rather they are emissaries of posterity. Galvanized by the indomitable spirit of the Nigerian psyche and the relentless cry of posterity, they have become veritable instruments in the hands of destiny to chart a realistic path for the Nigerian renaissance.”

Other clerics who have spoken in support of #EndSARS include Pastor Enoch Adeboye, Bishop David Oyedepo and Pastor Sam Adeyemi.
