2023 election: PFN warns against Muslim/Muslim ticket


Ahead of the 2023 general elections, the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) has warned against the foisting a Muslim/Muslim ticket on the nation by any of the political parties eyeing the presidential seat.

Also, the Christian body insisted that any political arrangement short of producing a Christian President at the election would be unacceptable to the Christian populace.

The PFN president, Bishop Francis Wale Oke, who is also the President of The Sword of the Spirit Ministries, spoke on Monday evening at the grand finale of a five-day Zoe World Congress tagged Zoe Worship Extravaganza held at the International Conference Centre, University of Ibadan.

Speaking at the event organised by his ministry where legendary Bola Are, Pastors Dunsin Oyekan and Yomi Ajayi held thousands of worshippers spellbound, Wale Oke described as evil and selfish, those behind the agenda of having a Muslim/Muslim Presidential ticket at the coming polls.

Though he said the PFN was not routing for any party, the cleric, however, maintained that any of the parties that does not factor in the interest of the christian community in the country, would fail.

He said: “It is disturbing that with the 2023 general election fast approaching, some politicians who are hell-bent in further scuttling the fragile peace in the country, are desperately seeking to foist a Muslim/Muslim political agenda on us, a development that will further throw unsavory spanner into the works, fiber and the tenuous peace of the nation.

“Nigeria is a nation predominantly populated by Christians and Muslims.

“In fact, the PFN which by the grace of God I head today, has a membership strength of over 65 millions adherents of Jesus Christ.

“So, we vehemently say no to Muslim/Muslim presidential ticket; we say no to arrangement that will relegate the christians to obscurity.

“This we shall resist by all available lawful means.”
