The Director, Strategic Communications of President Buhari 2019 Presidential Campaign (Official Spokesperson), Festus Keyamo has stated that real unbiased and responsible men of God should not get directly involved in politics. Many believe this is a subtle shade at Bishop David Oyedepo and Revd father Mathew Kukah who were seen with PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar last week.
According to Keyamo,
“The real, unbiased & responsible men of God engage all sides, pray for all sides. They don’t descend into the arena. They don’t follow one side up & down to negotiate for endorsements & power. Instead of directing their flock to God, they now direct their flock to men & politics”
On Wednesday, Oct 10, some religious leaders were present at a reconciliation meeting between former president Olusegun Obasanjo and Former vice president Atiku Abubakar in Abeokuta. They include Bishop Oyedepo, Revd Mathew Kukah, and Sheik Gumi.
