Dr Paul Enenche, Senior Pastor of Dunamis International Gospel Centre, has called for the arrest of clerics who attended the unveiling of Kashim Shettima as Bola Tinubu’s running mate.
At an event in Abuja on Wednesday, Shettima was introduced as the All Progressives Congress’s vice presidential candidate.
The presence of some bishops and pastors at the event sparked accusations that they were forgeries, especially since the Christian Association of Nigeria also disavowed the clerics.
Enenche slammed the clerics and those who brought them to the event in a video posted on his Facebook page on Friday.
He said, “You know there is a contest going on in this country right now where some criminals paraded themselves as bishops.
“That is the level to which the criminal leadership of this country has descended into. You see like begets like, those who sent them are like them. That is an impersonation of the highest order and they should be arrested and tried.”
However, the Tinubu Campaign Organisation has refuted claims that the bishops and pastors were fake.
TCO said, “We want to say that those clergymen were not fake, not mechanics or yam sellers as the purveyors of hatred have made Nigerians to believe in the social media.
“They are not big names in Christendom yet, they are gradually building up their missions.”
