As expected, former FCT Minister has responded the scathing remarks and criticisms that have continually greeted the blasphemous tweet he allegedly posted by alluding that ‘Jesus Christ Sleeps With Mary Magdalene.’
“Hello Friends. I have been travelling and try to catch some sleep in
between the last 24 hours and missed all the furore arising from my
retweet of Ogunyemi Bukola’s (@zeebook) joke Maku eat al and Jesus. I
must say I am taken aback by the extent of desperate misrepresentation
of what was an innocuous attempt to show the godlessness of the Jonathanians to denigrate anyone that dares to ask them to be accountable.
To those who were genuinely offended by the retweet, I apologize. I did
not meant to offend anyone, neither did the @zeebook I know and
featured as one of the Young Voices in my Friday Column. Jesus or Isa
Alaihis Salaam is a respected prophet of Islam. Every Muslim accepts
this in addition to his miraculous virgin birth. It is therefore absurd
for any Muslim believer to disrespect Jesus Christ.
those in this class will see my point of view and accept my apologies
for any offense or disappointment caused. And I advise everyone to read
@zeebook’s timeline and mine to read EXACTLY what was tweeted rather
than the second-hand reports of certain people who ALWAYS twist whatever
I write or not write to achieve their morally-repugnant objectives.
To those in that class of liar – the political contractors who tried to
attribute the entire statement to me to destroy perceived political
capital, I say keep on doing that till the day your cups will be full.
Everything these days is reduced to posturing for 2015,but those doing
it do not even know which one of us will be alive to witness the events
of that time. I leave all those to God and their conscience.
the Warriors of God, who misinterpret the Scriptures (both Bilble and
Qur’an) and pretend to be capable of fighting His battles, please learn
from history. The multiple Crusades and Jihads are yet to convert the
entire human race into one religion. If God wished us all to be of one
religion, He would have made us so. So please leave God’s work to Him,
and just be good to other humans.
I thank all my friends who
stood up for me in this saga. They know me better than what the
desperate Jonathanians want to paint as El-Rufai. An those that wish to
know me a little batter should please read my forthcoming book. Thanks
and God Bless.
