2023: NOSCEF Warns APC, Tinubu Against Using Money To Divide Christians



Ahead of the 2023 elections, a group, Northern States Christian Elders Forum, has warned the All Progressives Congress and its presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu to stop dividing Christians with money.

NOSCEF, in a statement signed by its chairman, Oyinehi Inalegwu, on Tuesday, alleged that the ruling party recruited unknown Christian groups to attack the umbrella body, Christian Association of Nigeria.

The statement read, “We warn APC to stop using monetary incentives to recruit and cause divisions amongst the Christians, especially in the North.

“NOSCEF is concerned that apart from the failure of the desire of the architects of the single faith ticket to cause serious divisions in the forthcoming elections, APC has resorted to clandestine ways of causing division in the body of Christ by recruiting hitherto unknown bodies in the Body of Christ to counter decisions taken by the umbrella body, CAN and its various organs.

The group expressed dismay over the “show of shame” the ruling party is involved in, following desperate efforts to attract public goodwill and acceptance by engaging strange Christian groups for endorsement purposes.

“We frown at the publicity they use to their advantage, to make public ridicule of Christian bodies, particularly in the North, for the purpose of causing disaffection, just to win the election.

“We all know as Christians, Muslims, and people of other faith, that unity, fairness, justice, and inclusiveness will engender National progress, rather than the war of divisive religious, political game, intended through the instrumentation of same faith ticket.

“Christian and Muslim faithful should disappoint divisive self-seeking politicians, who want to capitalize on our religious differences to gain political power,” the statement stressed.
