6,000 Pastors Endorse Buhari as Nigeria’s Next President


In spite of allegations that some pastors collected N7billion to support President Goodluck Jonathan’s ambition, no fewer than 6,000 Pastors in the Southwest are mobilising for the emergence of Muhammadu Buhari as president and have declared seven days praying and fasting for God to grant him victory.

The pastors under the aegis of Christians for Governance, Pastors For Change, held a conference in Ikeja, Lagos, where they openly endorsed the candidacy of Muhammadu Buhari and Yemi Osinbajo, who is a respected pastor in the Redeemed Christian Church of God.

The clerics are drawn from various churches, such as the Redeemed Church, Catholic, Orthodox, etc.

They declared that they were not part of Jonathan’s largesse and that nobody gave them money to support Buhari, but acting by divine intervention from God who told them that Buhari would be the next president of Nigeria.

The movement is being supported by Rev. Moses Iloh, Archbishop Magnus Atilade, Ayo Opadokun and many other bigwigs in Christendom.

Addressing the conference, Bishop Kayode Williams, National Coordinator, Christians for Good Governance, said they have about 6,000 ministers who were part of the group calling for change in leadership as the present government had failed the nation.

“We want to observe seven days of special prayer on the seven mountains in the Southwest political zones comprising six states to pray for the victory of Buhari and Osinbajo in the 28 March presidential election.

“We are using this opportunity to call on all pastors who believe that the time has surely come for change in Nigeria to exhort, mobilise, instruct and direct all our members from our churches, numbering 186,000 churches in the Southwest zone to adhere to this divine instruction from God,” he said.

“We shall intensify our intercessory prayers to God so that there will be peace in the nation and that the election will be free, transparent and peaceful. We are asking our archbishops, evangelists, elders, deacons and deaconesses to join hands and make sure that the prayer programme is very successful.”
