Professor Farooq Kperogi’s article on what he believes is hidden discrimination against Yoruba Muslims continue to draw reactions from all and sundry. There has been an outpouring of testimonies on this topic.

Here’s a Post I made on November 10, 2016. It speaks to how relationships spawn between Christians and Muslims in Northern Nigeria, as a balance to what Farooq Kperogi wrote concerning inter-religious balancing amongst the peaceful people of Yoruba land in South West Nigeria.

Read on:

Prophet T B Joshua has never said that he is God or more than a man and I appreciate him for that .

Please prove to me that God can say something today and in ten days time, not change his mind.

He once sent a Prophet to a King saying, ‘prepare, for your time is up’.
Then the Prophet left.

But before he could leave the premises, the King cried silently in prayer to God showing his record card of service, and God softened. He told the Prophet to turn around and meet the King again, with a message, ‘hi King, you got 14 more years’ !

Let’s assume that CNN had beamed the first prophecy, live, then before the second one came out, they cut over to report live from Damaturu or Damascus, would you now impugn the integrity of the Prophet?

I recall one event that occurred in my Church in the northern Nigerian city of Kano in 2007.
A Prophet had come to my Church in Kano from Ghana and he prophesied that the next president of Nigeria after Obasanjo would be a Christian and would come from the south.

I was deeply alarmed and made mental calculations on leaving Kano knowing how combustible the city can be over religious and political matters.

By the time the Prophet came back a few years later, Umaru Musa Yar’adua was already President but was abroad and in hospital. His deputy, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, was effectively acting.

Therefore I take the words of a Prophet under advisement. I won’t despise it.

In any case, God can decide to humble his servant by putting a lying tongue on him, but that is not to say he has abandoned him.

This same USA presidential election prophecy once humbled another Nigerian Prophet, Olabayo who had prophesied on NTA in an interview with Frank Olize.
Prophet Olabayo said, President Bush would win reelection. But Bill Clinton won.
Frank Olize took the camera back to him, asking, was it that God “wasn’t sure” then?

Olabayo’s response was deep, and thought provoking.

It is in Northern Nigeria that Christians fear the most for their lives and means of livelihood.
