However, according to Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo’s media aide, Laolu Akande, the reports are false.

“Claims that @MBuhari moved against Christian activities in Aso Rock Chapel have since been shown to be false,” Akande said via Twitter on Wednesday, September 16, 2015.

 

“The sorting out of procedural issues cannot be a fair basis to accuse the President of moving against the Chapel,” he added.

 

According to the reports, the children’s section of the chapel has already been closed and turned into a store.

The chapel was built by former President, Olusegun Obasanjo who sought to enjoy religious worship and services from the comfort of his room.
