The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN, has revealed some news concerning the upcoming 2023 Presidency Elections which will not be well received by the likes of Abubakar Atiku and Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
According to the PFN, for fairness, justice and equity the next President of the nation should be Christian.
Bishop (Dr) Francis Wale Oke, National President of the PFN, presented the case of the body, when he was speaking at the end of the quarterly meeting of the National Executive Council of the Fellowship in Lagos.
He stated that, ” We do not think it is right to have another Muslim president, come 2023. A Muslim President would have governed for 8 years, by 2023. The Church has been fully supportive of him. We prayed and supported him. We don’ t regret it. But now, we want a Christian President. They should take that into consideration. What is right is right. If you watch it, right from 1999, it’ s been alternating, Obasanjo, Yar’ Adua, Jonathan and then, Muhammadu Buhari. It shouldn’ t be from President Buhari to another Muslim President. That will not be fair. Let us do what is right” .
” God is a God of justice. The argument that it should not be about tribe or religion is good, but it is idealistic. We should be pragmatic. Whether we like it or not, religion has become a major factor in the politics of Nigeria. They brought it in and having brought it in, we are in it together and we are saying, we want a Christian President. That is speaking for the teeming millions of Nigerians. Since the political gladiators have brought in the factor of religion, let’ s play it according to the way it is. Nothing else is acceptable” .
This will definitely come as a blow to the hopes of Atiku and Tinubu who hold Presidential aspirations but are not Christians.
