Amb Pofi while lamenting the situation pointed out that such was “…endangering the sensibility of the nation.” While stressing that a recent online publication credited to the cleric where he made unprintable comments concerning a certain section of Nigerians, Amb. Pofi said it was one out of the many such outbursts that have been allowed to go unchallenged.
