Yesterday, during the All Progressive Congress (APC) governorship candidate, Dr Dakuku Adol Peterside’s campaign in Emohua local government area of Rivers State, the Director General of the All Progressive Party (APC) campaign organization, Governor Rotimi Amaechi accused the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) of paying some Christian clerics N6billion to campaign against APC presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari.
“Some pastors collected N6 billion and they are circulating documents and telling you not to vote for an Hausa man, not to vote for a Muslim because they want to Islamise Nigeria. Tell them to return our N6 billion. They gave them N6 billion. They should return it to the Federal Government coffers. They will tell you that Buhari wants to Islamise Nigeria.
“Tell them we are too educated. I am a Catholic, but no Catholic priest has told me that story right now in the Catholic Church, because I will ask him how. If any Pastor tells you that, tell him to return the money. Nobody can Islamise Nigeria. They have commercialized Jesus Christ. They should stop commercializing Jesus Christ. He is our Lord and Saviour. You know what Jesus Christ did in the temple. He chased them away. We shall chase away those pastors who collected money from PDP leaders to tell us lies. We shall chase them away on behalf of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
