Change your constitution, Cleric urges FG, says it favours Muslims

Apostle (Dr.) Alfred Jephson Tseye-Okotie

By Steve Seigha, Warri


The General Overseer of Hilltop Believers Assembly Nigeria Incorporated in Warri, Delta State, Apostle(Dr.) Alfred Jephson Tseye-Okotie on Sunday urged the Federal Government of Nigeria to change the constitution of the Country.



The cleric made the call during a sermon he delivered at the “Mighty Warrior International Conference 2019.”


The Conference which as tagged: Upon mount Zion had as its theme;”God will do a new thing.”


The cleric said,”The constitution is flawed. Lopsided. It favours the Muslims. There’s Sharia in the constitution.”


He argued that Nigeria is only a secular nation on paper.


“If you look at the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, we have two laws there. One Sharia. One Common law.


” Nigeria is a democratic secular nation. We have two laws. Sharia and Common law. Common law is not christian law. It is the common man’s law.


“Do you know in the constitution, the Quoran is mentioned so many times. Our people know the truth but they’ve been bought over. The South Westerners, South Easterners they have been bought financially and that’s why there is a problem.


” A core northern politician have a vision about the next 20 years. Our people are concerned about the enjoyment at the moment.


“The northerners are thinking ahead. What our people know is how to build many houses, children and get so many women. That’s what they care about.


” Nigeria cannot be said to be a secular nation. The constitution is not secular.


“Many of our forefathers foolishly signed in prints documents that will sell their destinies.


” This generation don’t even care .it pains me because you don’t have anywhere to run to.”



Apostle Tseye-Okotie also said Civil Servants should not rejoice over the thirty thousand (N30,000)naira minimum wage increment.


He said the newly approved thirty thousand(N30,000)naira minimum wage s not worth a living wage stressing that,”It is poverty.


“Paying a man with wife and three children thirty thousand (N30,000)naira is increasing poverty.


“By the time you increase the minimum wage to thirty thousand (N30,000) minimum wage, the price of goods will rise.”


Apostle Tseye-Okotie expressed confidence that God will do a new thing in Nigeria. He however said the citizens needed a mindset deliverance for the new thing to happen.


“We need to change the way we think about Nigeria. Nigerians don’t love Nigeria. Nigerians don’t love Nigerians”.


Apostle Tseye-Okotie said the citizens need to be begin to see themselves as part of the Nation otherwise,nothing will work.


” If an American citizen gets loss, the whole of America will go and look for that one person. Let one Nigerian be in crisis, nobody gives a damn about you.”


Apostle Tseye-Okotie noted that Nigeria as presently constituted is divided along tribal, ethnic, religious and cult lines.


He warned that a Country divided cannot make any progress pointing out that politicians seeking for elective offices do so based on religious,ethnic/tribal grounds without reeling out their manifestoes to the people.


Apostle Tseye-Okotie said it is difficult to try anyone on corruption charges because of tribal and religoius sentiments.


“If you try it, people will come out and say he is our own. Nigeria is wrongly administered. If you cannot deal with the person, then you have failed. Personal interests drown in the dark.
