Governor Douye Diri of Bayelsa State has charged Christians to defend themselves and their faith in the face of troubling security challenges in the country.
The Governor while playing host to the General Overseer of Foursquare Gospel Church, Reverend Sam Aboyeji and the Senior Pastor of God’s Power Dominion Ministries International, Pastor I.A. Charles, at the Government House, Yenagoa, insinuated that failure of Christians to defend themselves in the face of sustained attacks on their faith would lead to Nigeria becoming a predominantly Muslim country as Turkey.
The Governor, represented by his deputy, Senator Lawrence Ewhrudjakpo, noted that the attacks on Christians in the Othman Republic was what led to Turkey today being dominated by Muslims.
According to him, negligence and religious gentility led to that “fatal mistake” which he urged should not be allowed to repeat itself anywhere in the world.
The Governor therefore urged Christians not to allow themselves to be overrun and killed with ease by those who see them as enemies
