Former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, has revealed the only Christian leader in Nigeria that he thinks will make heaven in Nigeria.
Obasanjo spoke on Friday at the funeral service of the late Prelate Emeritus of the Methodist Church of Nigeria, Dr Sunday Mbang in Uyo, Akwa Ibom state.
According to Obasanjo, the only Christian leader in Nigeria he is sure will make heaven is the late Prelate
Obasanjo revealed that the late Prelate was not only forthright but he was not a man of emotions.
Shortly after his release from prison amid pressure to become the President of Nigeria, one of the prominent Nigerians Obasanjo consulted across the country was the late Prelate Emeritus Mbang.
Obasanjo said the late Prelate Emeritus was a man he always sought his advice because of his forthrightness.
The former President added that when Governor Emmanuel Udom was at the helm of affairs in Akwa Ibom State and he wanted to seek Mbang’s opinion on any burning issue, he would visit Akwa Ibom State under the pretext of wanting to see the governor, but would visit the late Prelate Emeritus.
Mbang was a former President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, and was the first black President of the World Methodist Council.
He died in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State on Tuesday May 16, 2023, at the age of 86.
