Senior Pastor of the House on the Rock Church Lagos, Paul Adefarasin, has described Frederick Lugard as a “devil’s incarnate” for amalgamating the northern and southern regions.
According to the cleric, the then-colonial administrator of the country, Mr Lugard, caused the amalgamation, noting that Nigerians are currently suffering from what he did many years back.
“It was the parents of Nigeria who are not good parents. Lord Lugard was a devil incarnate, and what he did to this country, we are suffering from it, many years later, and it is time that we must tell the truth,” Mr Adefarasin said in his recent video circulating online.
“It’s absolutely a must,” he reiterated just as he stated that “those of you who benefit from the system when the judgment comes unless you extricate yourselves in the righteousness of God, that’s your own problem.”
The pastor challenged individuals who benefit from the system to act like Robin Hood by “taking” from the government and giving to the poor.
While citing series of problems in Nigeria, he also explained that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) was “a fraud,” as figures presented during elections were inaccurate.
Mr Adefarasin explained, “I’ve mentioned the economy. I’ve mentioned culture. I’m gonna (sic) go into politics and government deliberately. By the way, if you don’t fix some of Nigeria’s problems today, that is this INEC problem; I will say plainly, INEC is a fraud.
“If nobody would speak up about it, the righteous should speak, and righteousness is not by ourselves. It is of him (God).
“This is the only country in West Africa when you move to the ocean through the desert, and the numbers decrease or rather the only country in the world that you move to a large number (sic) of water or little or no water and the numbers increase.”
