Babachir Lawal, the former secretary of the federal authorities, spoke again on the Muslim-Muslim vote of the All Progressive Congress, saying that Christian politicians in northern Nigeria will stand firm in their stand for justice, fairness and honesty.
In response to him, any country or political system built on injustice would collapse because of the just and fair resolution of all different disputes.
In a proclamation on Sunday titled “Why We Do What We Are Doing”, Lawal implored Nigerians to understand where northern Christian politicians stand on the Muslim-Muslim vote for the All Progressive Congress in the 2023 presidential election.
He said that neither APC presidential candidate Asiwaju Bola Tinubu nor his working partner Kashim Shettima nor political social gatherings saw their mistake in choosing same-faith votes for the presidency in the upcoming election to match or moderate northern Christian politicians. mood.
“Now we are not on the path to reconciliation so far, as in the first incident, neither the APC nor its presidential candidates, who were celebrating, bothered to hunt us down for reconciliation, albeit early,” the statement read. , our doors are always open.
“Indeed, there are some ‘Christian’ traitors and ‘Judas’ who, fueled by moral turmoil, poverty or greed, see themselves as brokers and saboteurs of this noble Christian trigger.
“For this group, I would like to suggest studying the biblical biography of Judas Iscariot and Ahittopher. Pay attention to how their lives ended.
“Clearly, Tinubu/Shettima’s most popular tactic is to confront our position by insulting and sponsoring pretend Christian groups to create the impression that the entire Christian world is divided on this matter.”
He pointed out that the technology failed and they became a joke at church gatherings across the country.
He added: “This tactic also paints the duo as smug and pitiful, while also exposing them to the public as having unimaginable flaws in their noble character.”
“And, they will certainly be damaged. We observed this development in the APC itself from the 2014 registration and the 2022 meeting, with the overriding aim of excluding Northern Christians from all institutions of social gatherings.
PFN supports CAN
The Pentecostal Fellowship Nigeria said Friday’s discussion board for Pentecostal bishops in northern Nigeria, under which some bishops met with Tinub, in Abuja did not exist throughout the PFN.
While denying the group, Bishop David Bakare, PFN’s deputy national secretary, told reporters in Kaduna on Sunday that there was no such thing as a “Southern or Northern Pentecostal bishop” within the PFN.
“The gathering between Tinubu and the Pentecostal Bishops’ Discussion Council of Northern Nigeria has nothing to do with the PFN.
“I speak to you formally and authoritatively to say that the hierarchy of the Christian community, in fact, the PFN as I describe it, has not been compromised in any way.
“PFN does not recognize the Pentecostal Bishops Discussion Council in northern Nigeria,” he said.
The discussion board has no affiliation or relationship with the PFN registered with the federal government of the country.
“Nevertheless, PFN’s place on the same-faith vote remains as it was in the beginning and we are not changing our position on this matter for any purpose now.”
Bakare also noted that the PFN is just a physique, with all bishops, priests and members lined up behind President Bishop Francis Vail.
