National Youth Leader of the Middle Belt Forum, Mr. Jonathan Asak, has faulted the Vice Chairman of the Arewa Consultative Forum, Senator Joseph Waku, over his attack on the President of the Christian Association, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor.
Waku had recently criticised Oritsejafor’s address before the United States Congress’ Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health and Human Rights, saying the cleric’s comments were capable of dividing the country.
But MBF youths questioned Waku’s credibility, saying he lacked the credential to talk.
In a statement in Jos on Sunday, Asake, said, “We are baffled that Waku, a Christian (if he truly is) and indeed a Middle Belter could make such unwarranted comments on the leadership of Christians in Nigeria, knowing fully well the activities of the dreaded Islamic terrorists known as Boko Haram which has been bombing and killing innocent Nigerians, especially Christians in the northern part of the country.
“Waku’s outburst presents him as a desperate agent paid by his masters to execute an agenda.”
Also, a former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, has backed Oritsejafor for urging the US to declare Boko Haram a terrorist organisation.
