Some pastors took N6bn bribe to campaign against Buhari - Governor Amaechi

Rotimi Amaechi

The Director-General of Buhari Presidential Campaign organisation and Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi has accused some church leaders of taking N6 billion bribe from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), to campaign against the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd).

Amaechi who spoke at APC's governorship campaign rally yesterday, in Emohua Local Government Area, Rivers State, alleged that the religious leaders were already distributing leaflets all over that Buhari had plans to Islamize the country if elected.

He said: "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; that they want to Islamize 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 Islamize 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 Islamize Nigeria. They have commercialised Jesus Christ. They should stop commercialising 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 have collected money from PDP to tell us lies. We shall chase them away on behalf of our Lord Jesus Christ.

"I told the President that the election in Rivers State is a referendum between him and me. I told him anywhere I will go, I will show what I have done. Let him show what he has done."
