Leader of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), and President of The Sword of the Spirit Ministries, Bishop Wale Oke, has warned against plan for an all Muslim ticket ahead of 2023 presidential election, saying doing so could spell doom for a country already struggling with religious and others issues.
He said there are people who think they have the power to decide what would happen, but added that God will not allow what he called ‘satanic agenda’ to prevail in the next election.”It is disturbing that with the 2023 general elections fast approaching, some politicians who are hell-bent on 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 an unsavoury spanner into the works, fibre and the tenuous peace of the nation,’
Oke said at the grand finale of a five-day Zoe World Congress, tagged Zoe Worship Extravaganza, held at the International Conference Centre, University of Ibadan.”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 million adherents of Jesus Christ.
So, we vehemently say no to a Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket; we say no to arrangements that will relegate the Christians to obscurity. This we shall resist by all available lawful means.”We urge that we follow the routes already taken by the previous administrations of (Olusegun) Obasanjo, (Umar Yar’adua, (Goodluck Jonathan and (Muhammadu) Buhari, so as to avoid the pitiable paths some are trying to tread”Anyone, who is flying a Muslim/Muslim presidential ticket is satanic and from the pit of hell.The Lord, God of hosts, will crush that satanic agenda.
Any party that flies a Muslim/Muslim presidential ticket has failed completely. In fact, it will not only fail, it will scatter!” for selfish reasons and aggrandizement.“The Northern States Christian Elders Forum (NOSCEF) read with concerns the reported meeting of a frontline politician with some Northern Elders, advocating a Muslim/Muslim ticket, if given the Presidential ticket and many days after, the report has not been refuted.A group, Northern States Christian Elders Forum (NOSCEF), also released a statement condemning plans for a Muslim-Muslim ticket, warning that such moves will be massively resisted.
