The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria ( PFN) has on Tuesday, warned against the imposition of a Muslim/Muslim ticket on the nation by any of the political parties eyeing the presidential seat in 2023, insisting that any political arrangement without producing a Christian President for Nigeria, would be totally unacceptable to the Christian populace in the country.

The president of PFN, Bishop Wale Oke, who is also the President of The Sword of the Spirit Ministries, gave the warnings at the grand finale of a 5-day Zoe World Congress tagged “Zoe Worship Extravaganza” held at the International Conference Centre, ICC, University of Ibadan.

Speaking at the congress organized by his ministry, he described, those behind the agenda of having a Muslim/Muslim Presidential ticket at the coming polls as evil and selfish.

he also added that 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 elections 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 unsavoury 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 million adherents of Jesus Christ. So, we vehemently say no to Muslim/Muslim presidential tickets; 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 Obasanjo, Yar’adua, Jonathan and Buhari, so as to avoid the pitiable paths some are trying to tread for selfish reasons and aggrandizement.

“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, but it will also scatter.”

Additionally, he prayed that those behind the plot would not succeed, adding; “It is only the will of God for Nigeria that shall prevail, not the satanic agenda of any corrupt, selfish, self-centred unpatriotic, evil politician who thinks he has enough money to buy up the South West of Nigeria, and the whole of the nation.”

Besides, he said: “Nigeria belongs to all of us and it will only thrive when there’s fairness, equity and justice. This we are calling for in all our engagements in the country.

“If the two major political parties in the country field Muslim/Muslim candidates, they will both fail. What we want is a Christian President. Buhari must hand over to a Christian. Let everybody know that any arrangement short of that will be totally unacceptable to us. The 65 million-strong members of PFN are vehemently opposed to any arrangement of that nature.”

He, however, prayed for peace in the country, imploring those itching to destroy it through their selfish pursuits and primordial sentiments, to have a rethink.
