Rt Rev Abiodun Ogunyemi, Zaria Diocese (Anglican Communion), on Thursday, called on the Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, to forget his 2023 presidential ambition.
Ogunyemi made the statement after the governor halted his decision on the proposed demolition of the 110-year-old St George Cathedral, Sabon-Gari, Zaria, and another alleged plan to demolish the Sabongari property of the church in Kaduna State.
The Bishop noted that any attempt to frustrate the church in the state was an affront to God and to Christians across the country.
“Diocese of Zaria is not at war with the governor and we are not religious bigots.
“We are only fighting for our right. Nobody can stop us from fighting for our right.
“Any attempt by El-Rufai to demolish any of our properties in that market will be a direct assault on the church in the whole of Nigeria.
“The governor is being prepared for 2023 elections. The governor should know that he will never be president of Nigeria.
“I speak prophetically as a servant of the living God,” Ogunyemi said.
