National Secretary of Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), Pastor Emmanuel Nuhu Kure, one of the four pastors who visited the Villa to pray for Yar'Adua at the height of his sickness in 2010, disclosed this at the weekend.
"Of course, I was not obeyed and exactly three weeks after that visit, he
, based in Kafanchan, Kaduna State, but spoke to Sunday Vanguard in Lagos, last week, said.
Narrating what transpired at the prayer session for Yar'Adua, which he
claimed lasted about 10 minutes, "sharp and straight to the point", the PFN leader said: "When we went in there, they pulled me aside and said the reason you are here sir, go beyond that, can God show mercy?
Exonerating the former president's wife, Turai, from blame over the failure to move Yar'Adua from Aso Rock as advised, Kure
said, "Nigerian politicians are very complicated and sophisticated people when they know their interests are at stake; they will use you to remain relevant.
