It comes to that point when people can be extremely desperate. That was the position of the cabal surrounding Yar'Adua when they invited the religious leaders to prove a point to Nigerians. But unfortunately for them, that trick is not working and Nigerians are not responding positively in their favor. The victims I see in all of these are the clerics themselves who have now tarnished their respected reputation by becoming part of Yar'Adua's lies and intrigues. Do they really think that Nigerians believe or even care about those propaganda they now feed Nigerians that Yar'Adua is recovering well, and may soon retake his presidency? Even as they confess that the man could hardly say "Amen" when they prayed for him. Such irresponsible contradictions !!! Did they for a minute consider the feelings of Jonathan when they accepted to visit Turai who had rudely fenced off the acting president all these months?
To even think that men of God would be lying like this makes one take another look at religion and followership in Nigeria. I feel sorry for Bishop Oyedepo when he cynically refused to tell the nation the outcome of their meeting with Yar'Adua. The man simply didnt want to lie as the Turai had expected him to broadcast to Nigerians that Yar'Adua is now recovering from his mysterious illness. However, why did Oyedepo fall into such trap by going to Yar'Adua in the first place? These "men of God" has indirectly disrespected the Acting President by honoring Turai's invitation. Every single Nigerian, including these clerics fully understands the kind of dirty games going on in Yar'Adua's camp, how this man was smuggled into the country at night in the midst of myriads of lies. Why would the clergy be willing to get involved in such a mess? Publicity for their various churches and mosques? They should all be ashamed, and their followers should now reassess whether these people actually serve God, the people or their own ego.
