ThePlatform conference, a gathering of not just Christians but like-minded Nigerians, founded and organized by Pastor Poju Oyemade the Senior Pastor of of Covenant Christian Centre, Lagos has over the years become a platform where national issues are also discussed, drawing dignitaries across many sectors and global audience numbering thousands.

One Twitter user that go by the username @cremechi11revealed that she would not be attending this year’s event if the Kaduna State Governor would be among the speakers. “I will not be attending or engaging in anything concerning The Platform as long as Elrufai is on it. #BoycottThePlatform” She expressed.
