N7 BN |Amaechi Made Me Lie Against the Church, CAN, Oritsejafor & Oyedepo – Pst. Musa Dikwa

by on March 25, 2016
 

Barely one year after his allegation that ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, allegedly gave out N7 billion to the leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and Pentecostal Fellowship off Nigeria (PFN), to facilitate and support his reelection, controversial Pastor and Executive Director of the Voice of Northern Christian Movement (VNCM), Kallamu Musa Dikwa, has apologized to those affected by his statement.

One of those Dikwa accused of benefitting in the presidential largesse, Pastor Bosun Emmanuel, who disclosed this to correspondents in Abuja, on Thursday, during a press briefing, said, specifically, Dike’s Dikwa apologised to the President of CAN, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor; General Overseer of Living Faith Worldwide aka Winners Chapel, Bishop David Oyedepo and Secretary, National Christian Elders Forum (NCEF), Pastor Bosun Emmanuel.

Bosun Emmanuel disclosed this in Abuja on Thursday during an interview session with correspondents. While sharing the discussion he had with the controversial pastor, he said, “It would be recalled that during the electioneering campaign leading to the 2015 elections, Musa Dikwa addressed a press conference in which he claimed three ministers of the gospel, the President of CAN (Pritsejafor), Bishop David Oyedepo and myself (Pastor Bosun Emmanuel) received N7 billion from the Jonathan administration to mobilise ministers of the gospel nationwide to campaign for his re-election.

“The story was started by the former governor of Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi who claimed the sum of N6 billion was given to pastors to campaign for Jonathan’s re-election. It was the story of Amaechi that Musa Dikwa latched on to and insisted that it was not N6 billion but N7 billion and proceeded to mention the names of the three ministers of the gospel. As we could recall, Rotimi Amaechi was the Director of the Campaign for the election of the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, now President Muhammadu Buhari. “We met Musa Dikwa personally in Jos on Wednesday 12th August, 2015.

I sat directly facing him for almost three hours and Musa Dikwa did not know he was talking to the pastor he lied against. We were interested in finding out, “were you there when the money was being shared”? No, he was not. “Was the money shared in Naira?” “No, it was in dollars.” It was the conversion that made it N7 billion.

“So, if you were not there, how did you know the money was being shared and the purpose for which it was shared?” He said he was informed by a CAN official in Abuja who told him to come quickly and collect his own share.

“Ironically, the CAN official Musa Dikwa mentioned as the informant was also one of the people who got Musa Dikwa arrested by DSS for carrying unsubstantiated story, and the same man is also one of the five respondents in the N300 million suit of Musa Dikwa against Department of States Services (DSS). (He gave us photocopies) The big question is, if the man Musa mentioned as the source of the N7 billion Naira story is truly the source, why would the same man invite DSS to arrest him, and why would Musa join the man as a respondent in a N300 million lawsuit? Musa Dikwa claimed that the DSS violated his Human Rights by arresting him. “Now, see who is heading for court? What right does he have to complain of the violation of his rights? What if I should sue Musa Dikwa N500 million for defamation of character
“Anyway, he apologised for including the name of Pastor Bosun Emmanuel in the story and even assured us that he would call another Press Conference to clear Pastor Bosun. So far, he has not done that. The implication is that even the inclusion of CAN President and Bishop Oyedepo in the campaign of calumny could also be false.

“The following day, 13th August, 2015, Musa came again to meet us at our lodging and disclosed the name of the person who specifically instructed him to include my name. He mentioned the name of one of the APC Pastors based in Lagos. So it became clear what happened. My name was included to discredit the WAKE UP CALL CD, while, (I think) Bishop Oyedepo was included because he came out openly to declare support for Jonathan and the President of CAN was mentioned to divide the church. It was a classical APC campaign by deception.

“It is not impossible that some clerics collected money to campaign for politicians on bothsides during the elections. That could have happened amongst Muslim clerics and Christian clergy. But, this N7 billion story is hogwash. I can say categorically that I have never collected a kobo from a politician or government official in my life to do Christian ministry. Musa Dikwa LIED against me, but thank God, he confessed.”

For now, I will allow the issue to rest and I will encourage Musa Dikwa to remember all the admonitions and counsel that ministers of the gospel gave him during the meeting. A member of the body cannotbe doing injury to the body. Peddling false information is not a Christian virtue.” However, several calls, SMS and email to Musa Dikwa, for response were not replied,while his telephone remained on ‘busy’ mode.

    If it was false they should have sued him. The way all these men of God are lying low since fight against corruption shows some of them actually put hands into the cookie jar

    Jonathan infested even the holiest men of God with corruption

    Comment… Am yet to understand the purpose of this press conference because is as if this pastor was trying to clear himself . In his conclusion he make us realised that some men of God rely collected money from politicians from both party and he said Islamic and Christian leaders were involved in the act, why are we now blaming so call pastor Musa in this game.

      What He simply meant was that pastors and imams may have collected money, which he will not know but the specific allegation of £7bn is falsef

    Why should a so called man of God lie. What signal are you sending to your congregation . You will climb pulpit and preach. You are not afraid of God. What a shameful thing.

    Musa, don’t lie again. Always prove all things and hold fast that which is good. I Thes. 5:21

    I Thessalonians 5:21 instructs us to “test [prove, KJV] all things,” which would include our old notions, and then “hold fast” to the good ones—the ones that pass the test. A mistake many make is to follow tenaciously the instruction of Revelation 3:11 to “hold fast to what we have” while completely ignoring the additional instructions of I Thessalonians 5:21 to test first.

    When I read this article the first time, I said “lord have mercy” the body of Christ? Parties involved knows what the Bible says concerning issues of life therefore it has to be addressed aas it should.
