The Bishop of Calabar, Anglican Communion, Rt Rev Nneoyi Egbe, has rejected the Muslim-Muslim ticket of the All Progressives Congress for the 2023 presidential election.
He said, “We absolutely do not, will not and cannot accept a Muslim-Muslim or Christian-Christian ticket. Nigeria’s secularity must be respected by our leaders,” adding that everybody must have a sense of belonging.
He said Nigeria’s democratic process was built on a wrong foundation, adding, “Having examined the Nigerian Constitution, its place in our polity, the application to our nationhood, we have arrived at the conclusion that Nigeria’s democracy is a scam. A comprehensive scam.”
Bishop Egbe decried the high level of insecurity in the country and called for State Police, saying, “Denying Nigerians this is evidence of government’s insincerity in securing the Nigerian environment against elements that are pursuing their evil agenda,” adding that calling on the citizens to own guns would only worsen the situation.
