Cleric backs Jonathan on pardon for Alams, others

LAGOS — A cleric, Apostle Andrew Wilson, President, Thunder World Outreach Ministry Inc., has thrown his weight behind President Goodluck Jonathan over his recent state pardon granted former governor of Bayelsa State, Chief Diepreye Alamieyeseigha, and others.

According to him, as Jesus Christ forgave those who crucified Him, Jonathan has the constitutional right to pardon whoever he so wishes. “Without sin there would be no forgiveness,” he noted.

Apostle Wilson, who spoke during the dedication of the church building at Awodi-Ora estate, Ajegunle, Lagos, said work in the building started eight years ago and “today we give God the glory for a successful dedication.”

He kicked against granting amnesty to Boko Haram members as being facilitated by the government.
