Rt. Rev. Michael Adeyemi, the boss of Venerable Femi Taiwo, the former Presiding Chaplain of the Chapel of Christ the Light, Ikeja, who was sacked by the Lagos State Government has condemned the wife of Governor Akinwumi Ambode over the sacking of the latter.
According to the head of the African Church, Ifako Diocese, Mrs. Ambode committed a sacriledge and she needs to apologize to the church.
In an interview published by Punch, he said he monitored the timeline of the events. He said Venerable Femi Taiwo is a just and upright man, and that there haven't been complaints against him as alleged by the government.
"If he is a serial offender as alleged, nothing stops them from reporting him to the church, that the person you seconded to the office here has a bad attitude and we would have called him to order.
"The government failed to inform us and for government now to have taken such a drastic step and tell him to leave (his official apartment) within 24 hours leaves much to be desired.
"This is very ungodly! It is a sacrilege for someone who happens to be a Christian. Even when Fashola (former Lagos State Governor) was there, despite being a Muslim, he never took such a decision. Now that the governor (Ambode) is a Christian, which we all fought for, he is the one taking ungodly decisions. We have written letters to CAN and CCN, including the Methodist Church where the Venerable Taiwo’s assistant came from, that if Mrs. Ambode, is trying to cause divide and rule among the Christians, she should go ahead. We are not afraid of anything.
"We understand that Mrs. Ambode is also a pastor in the Redeemed Christian Church of God, let her go and ask the RCCG Pastor, Enoch Adeboye, whether what she did was the right thing to do to a minister of God. It is ungodly and very sad.
