Rivers pastors vow to curse interim govt promoters

A group of clerics under the aegis of Rivers Pastors United for Tinubu’ from Rivers State has reiterated their candid support for the President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, vow to course those calling for interim government.

According to the Sun, the pastors numbering 100 made this disclosure in a statement signed by the Coordinator of the group, Sunday Edimeh and founder of One Life Bible Church, Port Harcourt, and Julius Dan, of the Apostolic Church of Nigeria, issued in the state on Wednesday, to welcome the president-elect to Rivers State.

The pastors made their position known that they remained strong advocates of the Tinubu/Shettima Presidency.

The clerics warned against destabilisation of the country’s democracy, saying those planning to scuttle the transition process should either desist from it or face the wrath of God.

They said contrary to the belief in some quarters, not all pastors worked against the emergence and victory of Bola Tinubu in the last election.

They said as a non-political group, they only interfaced with Tinubu’s structure through the former Osun State Commissioner for Works, Remi Omowaiye,

They added that they had before the election declare their support for Tinubu.

They clerics said, “We of the Rivers Pastors Unite for Tinubu prayed , worked and campaigned assiduously with our various church members for the victory of Bola Tinubu. We were blackmailed and called all kinds of names but to God be the glory, our efforts were crowned with Tinubu’s resounding victory .

“Our driving force in supporting Tinubu remains the fact that his pedigree shows he is the right man for the job. Though a Muslim and married to an RCCG Pastor. None of the presidential candidate has supported and elevated Pastors and men of God as Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

“Notable among those he elevated are Vice-President (Pastor) Yemi Osinbajo, Pastor Tunde Fowler, ex-Chairman of Federal Inland Revenue Service (FiRS ) Pastor Ben Akabueze, Director-General, Nigeria Budget office among others”.

Whole expressing their strong support for Tinunu, they assured him that they would continue to pray for him as they welcome him to River State on official visit.
