The leader of the Omega Fire Ministries Worldwide, Apostle Johnson Suleman has said that his father is a leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Suleman also said that he has no business with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and is not interested in politics.

The controversial cleric made the comments following an attempted arrest by officials of the Department of State Services (DSS) in Ekiti.

“I am speaking to clear the air, because number one, people who are going about saying things about me, do not know me,” he said while addressing members of his church.

“They owe me an apology for all of those statements. They are making the issue political, as if I am with PDP. Let me say this thing that Nigerians do not even know. Let me shock them. My father is a leader of APC in Auchi.

“If I were to be political, don’t I know who to follow? But I am not interested in politics.

“I need to speak about this because of my friends and most of our northern pastors who have Fulani members. Many of them have been so concerned. They said: ‘Daddy, we know you love us.’… My driver in Lagos is a Muslim. He has been driving me for nine years and I have bought him two cars. If I am not tolerant, a Muslim won’t drive me.

“I come from a Muslim family. Some of my family members are Christians, some are still Muslims… I have decided to ignore them because your viewpoint is what determines your point of view. What gets your intention should not get your attention. They don’t know me,” he added.
