Pastor Osinbajo, where is thy light? – Enenim Ubon

Pastor Yemi Osinbajo,

Eight days ago in Uyo you said “What happened on the 23rd of February was robbery. The votes of the people were stolen, but we are not deterred”. While your utterances isn’t shocking considering how well you’ve mastered the act of looking the other way just to hang on to power, it’s however embarrassing you didn’t rethink those words before uttering same. You directly indicted your administration, confirming its inability to conduct a free, transparent and credible elections as the madness in Rivers State(on saturday and sunday) has shown. Unsurprisingly you’ve once again lost your voice, like your boss you’re unaware of what your Minster of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi has done.

As a former Sunday school teacher, I’m certain you have come across Matthew 5:13 before “Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out…”, one would have expected you to call the perpetrators of electoral violence to order but alas the lighted candle has been put under a bushel; or perhaps this method of winning elections applied in places like Rivers, Bayelsa, Akwa Ibom states etc is what you meant when you said “I and Adams Oshiomhole, the national chairman of the party have been in the opposition for long and we cannot be defeated anymore”.

Pastor, when you were in opposition you alongside your party leader would never have accepted the results of the February 23 elections as being credible with all the glaring irregularities and electoral fraud perpetuated on that day, but then this is an era where people walk into the temple, lift ‘holy’ hands to testify of God’s ‘blessings’ and attempt to wash away all guilty by dropping something in the tray – we thank God for being merciful, in the days of the old testament we both know what would happen.

While I have no optimism whatsoever of your ability to shine whatever is left of your light in an administration without any focus, I’ll also point you to Jeremiah 51:45 “Come out of her, my people! Run for your lives! Run from the fierce anger of the LORD”, whatever counsels taken to perpetuate undemocratic tendencies will end as nothing but empty rage. As one who once was anointed and ordained I urge you to remember the final testimony given of brother Saul, of how his shield anointed no more and that of Eli who ended his tenure as a frustrated priest; but as Modercai told Esther “for if you remain silent(as usual) at this time, relief and deliverance for NIGERIANS will arise from another place.

Finally, 1 John 4:1 suggests a solution to all those urging you on and congratulating you with each derailing “Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God” because you see Pastor in the end we’ll give account of our time here and what anyone acquired will not matter, whatsoever you did to the least of my brothers will be the yardstick.


Enenim Ubon.
