|Apostle Johnson Suleman|
Do you think the “man” in them will always keep mute in all issues? No, it will always speak. Take for instance, the 'man' in Father Abraham displayed in ( Genesis 16:3-4), Moses ( Numbers 20:7-12), Saul ( 1 Samuel 15:7-11), David ( 11 Samuel 11, 12), Balaam (Numbers 20-24), Peter (22:54-60). This is just a few out of many instances enlisted apart from other bible characters God used tremendously, yet the man in them kept seeking attention.

Anointing does not supress the man in a prophet, it will only make him speak according to the standard and influence of God. But When a man of God goes astray, the spirit would be forced to depart from him and as such becomes an available tool to be used by the devil, which include spewing evil with the same mouth he uses in preaching to gullible followers who is always at the disposal of their evil machinations.
Back to the statement credited to Apostle Johnson Suleman who ofcourse happens to come from the Hausa-Fulani enclave that Biafra restoration move will not be actualised, I tried so hard to decode the reason behind such a callous statement, perhaps to hear him say "God told me" but to my greatest surprise, all his premise was based on the usual rhetorics devised by Hausa-Fulani and their Yoruba counterpart, in furtherance of their subjugation of Biafrans that “Igbos have not even ruled themselves and they are looking for a nation”.
It was a huge disappointment from a man I thought had a shred of dignity. I thought divine calling goes with divine wisdom, but this man like Fr. Ejike Mbaka has proved me otherwise. I was astonished at the brazen indepth of Apostle Suleman's naivety to elementary social issues. The Apostle could have saved himself this shame by minding his fake prophetic ministry, than delving into an issue that the Almighty God never asked him to talk about. Well that was the man in Suleman speaking. A perfunctory look at his statement below could as well help him and his followers to retract:

“Igbos have not even ruled themselves and they are looking for a nation”; who ever told Apostle Suleman that Biafra is an Igbo quest? So in all his self-acclaimed studies, he has not come across a basic history of Biafraland mass? So he could not ask God whom he claim speaks to him, to know whether or not Biafra deserve to be free? As a man of God, Has he ever asked himself why God led the Israelites out of Egypt? What actually gave Suleman the impression that Biafrans cannot rule themselves? Was it the Hausa-Fulanis and Yorubas that ruled our fore-fathers before we were lumped into one Nigeria? Could his narrowing of Biafra to only an IGBO entity mean that he harbours the criminal intention to thread on the part of divide and rule antic or he is just proving ignorant?
Well which ever one it is, at this point in time i will be justified to say that the Apostle has lost it. No doubt Biafrans are the most organised and intelligent black race on earth as proven by the U.S scholars. When it comes to socio-political issues, from Izon (Ijaw), Igbanke, Ibibio, Igala, Idoma, Igbo, etc none has ever recorded leadership crises or default in sound social organisation until we were merged with Arewa and Yorubas. The unholy marriage has distorted natural law of order inherent in Biafrans, hence the need to revert to the way we were before Frederick Lugard advanced.
As a man of God he claims, will he say that God hates peoples’ freedom or God derives joy in seeing his people killed everyday in the name of ONE NIGERIA? "Are you Apostle Suleman saying that God only delivers people from opression when they are able to rule themselves? The Israelites in those days according to the bible were the most difficult set of people, but God out of love for his people still saw them to their promised land, so what makes Suleman think that God cannot repeat same feat again? Must a people get organised before God sets them free, or God sends them a leader like Moses in order to get them organised and deliver them? Psalm 105:12-13,26 says “when they were but a few men in number; yea, very few, and strangers in it. When they went from one nation to another, from one kingdom to another people…he sent Moses his servant; and Aaron whom he had chosen”.

Isreal was not delivered because they were organised rather God “gave” them Moses just like he has given Biafrans Nnamdi Kanu to deliver them from the claws of perpetual bondage and to organise them towards freedom. If not for the good organisational structure of IPOB, would an Ijaw man of today call an Igbo man his brother? Because of his leadership style, divide and rule antic has now become an history. Biafrans all over the world are organised in 88 countries and counting, which has seen the present agitation for Biafra take a different shape and yet Apostle Suleman is still saying that we cannot govern ourselves.
Have you not seen the gruesome killings of peaceful Biafra protesters who were killed while singing and praying in National High School Aba? Are you aware that Biafrans were massacred on 30th may for remembering their war heroes? Did you Apostle Suleman condemn Buhari and the Nigerian Army just as Amnesty International has done? It is a known fact that church business is now the fastest growing enterprise in Nigeria and as such you are seeking to maintain the interest and growth of your business. You have envisaged a scenario where there would be no Biafran member in church to steal from in the name of tithing when Biafra emerges, but slandering will not make any difference as our freedom is already at hand. Many of your kind who wanted to be popular and indirectly seek favour from Buhari via the Biafra cause will only end up retreating and regretting. Ask Mbaka!
Any of you who says that Biafra will not come is like telling me that God was not the one that freed the Israelites. It is evident it was not God that called you to become a pastor, because if it was he that told you to break out of where you were to become a pastor, he will never tell you that it is evil to break away from Nigeria. The holy book says "I will appoint a place (Biafraland) for my people (biafrans), and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own, and move no more; neither shall the children of wickedness (Hausa/Fulani) afflict them anymore, as before time 11 Samuel 7:10.
