The immediate past Managing Director of the News Agency of Nigeria, Mr Bayo Onanuga, has criticized all Nigerian Pastors for what he described as their failure to see coronavirus coming.
The multiple award winning publisher and editor on Thursday evening posted his picture, wearing face mask and glasses on his Facebook page where he described himself as the masquerade from Ijebuland.
In his words, “The masquerader from Ijebuland! A sign of the new normal. Shame on all the pastors in Nigeria; at least they should have seen the mask coming if not the virus.”
The Ogun born journalist cum politician, Onanuga has been very vocal on national issues recently. He’s also been airing his views and updating the general public about the pandemic, vis-a-vis its probable implication on the economy.
His post however generated reactions. While some wanted him to tag Imams with the accusation, others wanted him to back off from the attack on pastors, saying it is God’s prerogative to reveal things and events.
