The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) in Cross River State has accused the Director General (DG) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council, Governor Chibuike Amaechi, of giving money to 500 pastors in October last year to get their support for his political party, the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The pastors made the accusation against Amaechi who is also the Rivers State Governor in apparent response to the allegations he made recently against pastors in the country whom he accused of collecting N6 billion from the ruling party to mount campaigns against the Presidential Candidate of the APC, Muhammadu Buhari.
Commenting on the N6 billion allegations made by Amaechi against pastors on Monday, the Chairman of the PFN in Cross River State, Bishop (Dr.) Emmah Isong told journalists that though no money has been given to pastors as alleged by Amaechi, the DG of Buhari’s presidential campaign lacks the moral authority to accuse anyone of giving pastors money to campaign against the political interest of the APC.
Buttressing his claim that Amaechi was being hypocritical concerning the allegation he levelled against pastors in the country, Isong who spoke at the headquarters of his church , the Christian Central Chapel International (CCCI) , said: “My first answer to that will be that the governor that said that did not mention names. Pastor (Enoch) Adeboye himself on the 4th of February at TREM (The Redeemed Evangelical Mission ) Headquarters in Lagos, in front of six thousand pastors challenged that whoever made the allegations should mention names. Up till today we have not heard the names of whoever collected the N6 billion to share to the pastors
“Number two point is that: If, N6 billion was shared to pastors to mobilise Christians for the elections, you should know that people like Adeboye, whom I call one of the most important Christians in Nigeria, who has the largest church that has the voting power ,has not collected N10.
“Again, I in Cross River State, being the number one Pentecostal and as chairman of PFN for over eight years now, I have not also collected 1 kobo.”
