Revered Evangelist and convener of the One Million Anioma Crusade, Rev Uma Ukpai, has labelled all agitators for the actualisation of Biafra Republic as ‘mad people’.
Uma Ukpai who spoke with reporters in Uyo, where his ministry is headquartered, condemned the agitations for Biafra by the Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) and the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
He stressed that whoever is agitating for the actuslization of Biafra only confirms the level of his or her madness.
He added that everybody is mad, saying hat the difference is only the level of madness.
“There will always be crazy people, even when people are seen to be normal. Whoever is agitating for Biafra shows the level of his madness, but everybody is mad, the difference is the level of your madness,” he said.
The cleric also expressed disappointment towards the divisive elements holding the country apart as he ssessed Nigeria at 60.
Uma maintained that meaningful progress will not be attained until Nigerians begin to love and respect one another.
“In Nigeria we are all in a hurry to reach where are going to, so much so that we have no regards for others, no time for others and no love for others.
“As a nation until we love one another, we cannot notice one another, only when we love that which we have, that we can develop. But in Nigeria, we don’t care whether others eat or not.If we have no respect for one another, it also mean we don’t care whether others exist or not,” the cleric lamented.
In reacting to Pastor Enoch Adeboye’s recent comments on restructuring, Ukpai said: “I don’t think that he (Adeboye) is not entitled to his opinion.
“He is a man of God and he must have seen what happened during the civil war, which would guide him in the deductions he made. But to me, everybody is entitled to his opinion.”
Recall that varying comments have trolled the recent heightened calls for restructuring, with Pastor Adeboye and Pastor Sam Adeyemi both calling on the Presidency to listen to the clamour of Nigerians.
