Some pastors collected money to preach against Buhari - Adams Oshiomhole

Edo state Governor Adams Oshiomole alleges that some pastors have collected money to preach against APC Presidential candidate, Gen Buhari. Oshiomole made the allegation while receiving a PDP Chairmanship candidate and 2000 PDP members who defected to the APC.

"Some pastors after collecting money are now preaching that Buhari wants to convert the nation to Islam. When Buhari was Head of State with absolute power, did he convert Nigeria to Islam? Did he convert Dodan Barracks to Islam enclave? Are there not Christian Generals all over the place? The issue of this election is not about religion or tribe. It is about who has what it takes to repair our country. It is about who will give us light. If PDP couldn’t give us light in 16 years, shouldn’t we give it to someone else? 

Elections: Use Of Card Reader, Step In Right Direction – Bishop Idowu-Fearon

Bishop Josiah Idowu-Fearon of the Diocese of Kaduna (Anglican Communion) yesterday applauded the choice of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to use the Permanent Voter Card (PVC) card reader in the forthcoming general elections, saying it is a step in the right direction to reduce rigging of the election.

Although the bishop agreed that the card reader may not be able to completely rule out the possibility of rigging, he said if used, it will at least reduce rigging tendencies to the barest minimum and give some level of credibility to the election process.

Bishop Idowu-Fearon who stated this in an interview he granted newsmen at the Cathedral of St. Micheal, Kaduna, shortly after the Service of Collation of Archdeacons, also averred that Nigerians are devilishly creative and could do anything to mar the process.

He, however, said the challenges associated with the planned use of the card reader may be there, but calling for its abandonment will amount to an insult to the generality of Nigerians.

On the choice of who to vote, he said Nigerians must engage in serious thinking and soul-searching to avoid any mistake in the choice of who to vote, adding, “your choice of who you vote may become a blessing or a curse.”
