Cleric says Nigerians hate the truth

The President of the Christian Association of Nigeria said that Nigerians always run away from the truth and are great pretenders.

Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, has said that Nigerians fear and hate the truth which has left the country in the hands of terrorists and militants.

The President of the Christian Association of Nigeria was speaking on Tuesday, December, 9 at a peace parley between the Northern Christian Elders Forum and traditional rulers from the North. The Delta State born preacher accused politicians of using terrorism for short-term political gains.

Pastor Ayo said that the nation is still experiencing the Boko Haram insurgency “because Nigerians are pretendersand that they are always in the habit of running away from the truth.”

“The greatest war we are fighting is a war against the truth. We hate and fear the truth. It is so unfortunate. Nigeria is not free because we are running away from the truth. Truth can be bitter, but when you swallow it, it becomes sweet. No nation can grow without embracing the truth,” Papa Ayo said.

“We are like ostriches. We are a nation of pretenders. We run away from the truth and expect our problems to just vanish. Truth has a way of creating a level-playing field for everybody. We must build a nation on truth. What is happening here is a bold step towards embracing the truth,” he added.

He also warned that things might never work in Nigeria, until leaders and followers embraced the truth.
