Kaduna Religious bill: El Rufai says the pastor who said he will die should tell him the date

Kaduna state governor, Nasir El-Rufai, says Apostle Johnson Suleiman of the Omega ‎Fire Ministries who has repeatedly said he will die for introducing the proposed Kadauna Religious Regulating bill, should tell him when the death will happen. El-Rufai said this while speaking to reporters in Kaduna state recently ‎
"Most of the people that say I would die, as if I would not die, are people who call themselves Christian clergy. Of course, I will die. If that apostle is truly an apostle, he should mention the day I will die.
There is nothing in that law that prevents or infringes the practice of religion. It seeks to ensure that those that preach religion are qualified, trained and certified by their peers to do it. And some sections of the media have made it as if the law was drafted against Christianity. It is most irresponsible and I have nothing to say except to leave the matter to God"he said
He maintained that the bill does not have any ulterior motive
“Honestly, we do not have any ulterior motive other than to put a framework that will ensure Kaduna State citizens live in peace with every one practising his religion, but disallowing every Tom, Dick and Harry coming to say he can preach.”‎he said!
