Festus Keyamo, the spokesperson of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign council, has blasted the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) for looking into the affairs of the party.
VANTAGE NEWS reports that Keyamo said this while speaking during an interview with Channels Television on Sunday.
Keyamo warned pastors to stop dabbling in politics, adding that PFN has no right to criticize the decisions of the ruling party.
The Minister of State for Labour and Employment, while reacting to an interview granted by David Bakare, the deputy national secretary of the PFN, asked the christian organisation to stop questioning the decisions of the APC.
Recall that Bakare had in an interview with The Cable, said the group has no affiliation with members of the Pentecostal Bishops Forum of Northern Nigeria who met with Bola Tinubu, APC presidential candidate, last Friday.
Reacting, Keyamo said, “They should not be coming to question the decision of our party publicly. The purpose of pastors or their duty is to lead people to heaven not to lead people to [presidential] villa.
“If I go to church every Sunday, I want to hear the sermon of God and I don’t want to hear the sermon of politics or who should rule me.
“I want to hear the sermon of God and what will lead me to salvation and not what to lead me to the villa.”
He added that the party will present the performance of Tinubu during his time as governor of Lagos when campaign kicks off.
Keyamo added that Nigerians are too hungry to be bothered about issues bordering on religion.
“Nigerians are hungry, they want to see how that hunger will be addressed, not how their Christian or Muslim faiths will be addressed,” he said.
