GOVERNOR Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State has alleged that some church leaders collected the sum of N6 billion bribe from the Peoples Democratic Party -PDP, to campaign against Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, who is representing the All Progressives Congress -APC, at next week’s election.
Amaechi said the religious leaders were allegedly distributing leaflets, saying Buhari planned to Islamize the country if elected.
The Director-General, Buhari Presidential Campaign organization, however, called on the accused clerics to return the monies they collected from the Federal Government.
He said: ‘’ Tell them we are too educated. I am a Catholic, but no Catholic priest has told me that story right now in the Catholic Church because, I will ask him how.
“If any pastor tells you that, tell him to return the money. Nobody can Islamize Nigeria. They have commercialised Jesus Christ. They should stop commercialising Jesus Christ. He is our Lord and Saviour.
Speaking at APC’s governorship campaign rally Tuesday, in Emohua Local Government Area, Rivers State, Amaechi also said he had challenged president Goodluck Jonathan to display his achievement.
“I told the President that the election in Rivers State is a referendum between him and me. I told him anywhere I will go, I will show what I have done. Let him show what he has done,” the governor said.
