CALGARY—A Calgary church is calling on federal MP and minister of border security Bill Blair to take action over two upcoming sermons planned by what it calls a “homophobic” pastor from Nigeria.

“(Johnson) Suleman is the general overseer of Omega Fire Ministries in Nigeria and he is scheduled to preach in Calgary,” the letter states, penned by the leadership group at Calgary’s Hillhurst United Church.

Johnson Suleman is a pastor and preacher from Nigeria who oversees Omega Fire Ministries. He's scheduled to speak in Calgary, Alta. on Sept. 18 and 19.
