Pastor Richard Babajide of Christ Disciples Church, Ilorin, urged religious leaders to beware of their statements and to stop deceiving their followers.
Babajide gave the advice to Ilorin on Saturday in an interview with the Nigeria News Agency (NAN).
He said most religious leaders liked to use words that could disaffect the country’s ethnic groups.
“Most pastors and imams are only concerned with declaring war when they analyze the challenges of the country.
“It is very wrong to sing war on the altar in a sermon. Religious leaders should always preach peace and not war in this difficult time we face as a nation.
“Religious leaders are meant to be mentors and peacemakers for their devotees and not to mislead them.
“Let’s always promote peace and stop echoing war while serving our followers,” he said.
The cleric, however, called on Christians and Muslims to intercede for Nigeria.
“With prayers and the right attitude, together we can put Nigeria on the right track.
“Let’s always make Nigeria our point of prayer and see how God works,” he said. (NOPE)
