A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Edo State and candidate for Egor/Ikpoba-Okha Federal Constituency seat in the February 14, 2015 National Assembly elections, Hon. Ehiozuwa Johnson Agbonayinma, has urged the Christian communities nationwide not to be deceived by General Muhammadu Buhari’s overture. Agbonayinma said, in a statement yesterday in Abuja, that “the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), General Muhammadu Buhari, has begun questionable romance with the Church with the aim of securing its critical support in the 2015 presidential election”.
“He went on: It is indeed worrisome that Gen. Buhari has become very desperate to win the presidency, hence his overture to the Church, where I gathered he is now being taught how to sing Christian songs, which he will sing during campaign.
“This is patently unacceptable as this questionable romance runs contrary to Buhari’s antecedents and the records of his public positions and declarations on the issue of religion.
“This is a man who had, in the past, cared less about hurting the sensibilities of Christians with his fanatical disposition about Muslim religion. “He said in August 27, 2001 that he would ‘continue to show openly and inside me the total commitment to the Sharia movement that is sweeping all over Nigeria,’ and was quoted to have further declared, ‘God willing, we will not stop the agitation for the total implementation of the Sharia in the country.”
