Keyamo To PFN: Pastors Are To Lead People To Salvation — Not Preach Politics

Festus Keyamo, spokesperson of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign council, has expressed that pastors should stop dabbling into politics.

Keyamo said this in reaction to recent comments from the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN).

In an interview with TheCable, David Bakare, deputy national secretary of the PFN, added that the group had no affiliation with members of the Pentecostal Bishops Forum of Northern Nigeria who met with Bola Tinubu, APC presidential candidate, on Friday.

The PFN also said its opposition to the Muslim-Muslim ticket of the APC remains unchanged.

Speaking during an interview with Channels Television on Sunday, Keyamo stated that the PFN has no right to criticise the decisions of the ruling party.

“The PFN are not members of our party. They should go and vote that day,” he said.

“They should not be coming to question the decision of our party publicly. The purpose of pastors or their duty is to lead people to heaven not to lead people to [presidential] villa.

“If I go to church every Sunday, I want to hear the sermon of God and I don’t want to hear the sermon of politics or who should rule me.

“I want to hear the sermon of God and what will lead me to salvation and not what to lead me to the villa.”
