Quotes

` "`The pastors are out to pray for the continuity of this government till 2019. We are out to evangelize, mobilize, enlighten, educate and tell the truth about unparalleled achievements so far. We want to assure you that you have been anointed to take Oyo State to greater heights."
"This New Nation called Nigeria, should be an estate of our great grand father, Uthman Dan Fodio. We must ruthlessly prevent a change of power. We use the minorities in the North as willing tools, and the South, as conquered territory and never allow them to rule over us, and never allow them to have control over their future"
"Non-Muslims who want to know about Islam should ask from the right source. People have misconceptions about jihad because they don't understand Islam. In the Qur'an, jihad does not mean you have to fight people and kill them because they've failed to accept Islam. Jihad means striving in the course of Allah. If you help someone out of debt, you've strived in the course of Allah."
"The iniquitous plan was leaked to the elder statesman who petitioned the Presidency. Upon the confirmation of the plot, President Obasanjo directed the State Security service to investigate several allegations of politically motivated killings in Ekiti State."
