Popular activist Aisha Yesufu has asserted that religious leaders benefit from bad governance, insisting that the situation helps them ‘sell cheap miracles and power points’.
The activist made this remark in reaction to a post by the founder and General Superintendent of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry, William Kumuyi, which warned believers in Christ not to hate those in government.
Kumuyi also spoke against engaging in the destruction of private and public properties in reaction to the failure by those in power to deliver on electoral promises.

The clergyman had written, ‘We teach that if you’re a genuine believer in Christ, you wouldn’t hate your neighbour. Nor would you disdain those in power because they appear not to be delivering on electoral pledges such that you would go on the rampage, destroying government property or pillaging the public till.
‘We teach a linear life of Christian walk: you can’t be a saint on Sunday and a monster on Monday.’
Yesufu, who was part of those who led the #EndSARS protests of October 2020, a protest to end police brutality and bad governance in the country slammed religious leaders for their part in the situation of the country.
