The General Evangelist, Christ Apostolic Church (CAC) Worldwide, Prophet Samuel Abiara, has proffered reasons why many Nigerian Christian leaders rejected President Goodluck Jonathan and instead supported the All Progressives Congress candidate, Muhammadu Buhari in the March 28 presidential election.
According to the clergyman, Buhari’s choice is premised on the fact that he has the capacity to foster peace and development that Nigerians desire.
Abiara stated this during the inauguration of a new General Superintendent of the church, Pastor Samuel Olusegun Oladele at the All Saints’ Chapel of the CAC in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital yesterday.
Speaking on the outcome of the election, the clergy said: “I prophesised before the election that there would not be any problem before, during and after the general elections and thank God that it came to pass”.
While describing the president-elect as an embodiment of peace, Abiara added that the support of Christian leaders for the former head of state was for the good of the country.
He explained, “The Christian leaders are not partisan, but considered peace as paramount as our concern is about who will engender security of lives and properties. Therefore, we don’t care whether a Christian or Muslim becomes our president; all we wanted was someone who would bring about peace that people desire”.
