Kaduna Guber Poll: Concerned Pastors drum up support for Asake

By Femi Mustapha

As the race for Sir Kashim Ibrahim House, the seat of government in Kaduna State, heats up ahead of the March 11 poll, the Labour Party (LP) gubernatorial candidate, Hon. Jonathan Asake, has received a boost as the Concerned Pastors for Good Governance declared their total support for him.

This was contained in a statement by Apostle Edet Eyo and Reverend Matthias Egwuka, Chairman and Secretary of the forum respectively, and made available to the media in Kaduna on Wednesday.

The forum expressed reservations over a letter going viral on social media purportedly to be a directive from the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Kaduna state, directing them to vote for the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) gubernatorial candidate, Hon. Isa Ashiru Kudan. The pastors urged Christians to vote according to their conscience, stating that they had received information from a reliable source that CAN did not issue or intend to issue such a statement. They alleged that the letter was the handiwork of desperate people who are threatened by the sudden rise of the Labour Party candidate.

The Concerned Pastors reminded Christians in the state that it is the policy of the Christian body to admonish people to vote for righteousness and true holiness at all levels. They encouraged the good people of Kaduna State to vote against every evil that has placed Nigeria in its present precarious situation, resulting from bad governance.

“As Concerned Pastors for Good Governance, we are here to discountenance every evil propaganda, insinuation or suggestion that Hon. Jonathan Asake has stepped down or should step down for any other candidate, no matter the consideration,” they stated.
