Michael Adeyemi, a reverend and head of the African Church, Ifako Diocese, says Bolanle Ambode, wife of Lagos state governor, should apologise over her actions which allegedly led to the dismissal of Femi Taiwo, presiding chaplain of the Chapel of Christ the Light, Alausa.

There are reports that Ambode’s wife got angry over the refusal of the former chaplain to accord her respect during an anointing service.

In an interview with the PUNCH, Adeyemi said even a military regime did not contemplate such action, which he described as ungodly.

Adeyemi said if Ambode or his wife knew the tenets of Christianity, they would not deal with Taiwo they the way they did.

“What has happened is a sacrilege and Mr Ambode should know that. We have been appreciating his efforts in Lagos. Why will he allow himself to get involved in such a trivial issue that can spoil his public image?

“The embarrassment they caused us has never happened to any other denomination. Even during the military era, this can never happen… we all fought for a Christian governor, which all these?

“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.”

Adeyemi also vouched for Taiwo, whom he described as “a very responsible minister of God”.

“He is very knowledgeable, humble and disciplined. I have worshiped at that chapel a few times myself,” he said.

“I made personal investigations about him. Even the members of the chapel are saddened by this development. If you know about what they have been doing since this incident happened, you will know venerable Taiwo is a man everybody respects.”

The government is yet to officially react to the issue, which has generated public reaction.
