Stop collecting money from politicians, Methodist Prelate warns religious leaders.........
Political parties in Nigeria

The Prelate, Methodist Church of Nigeria, Dr Samuel Uche, has advised religious pioneers in the nation against gathering cash from political gatherings and competitors.

He affirmed that a few priests have been getting cash from the People's Democratic Party, the All Progressives Congress and the All Progressives Grand Alliance to underwrite their hopefuls in the inevitable 2019 Nigeria general Election.

Talking at the Interfaith Initiative For Peace gathering sorted out by the Sultan of Sokoto, Sa'ad Abubakar and the Catholic Archbishop of Abuja, John Onaiyekan, in Abuja on Friday, the Prelate, who was an individual from a board, expressed that a religious pioneer ought to have the capacity to oversee destitution or fortune.

He stated, "I discovered that some religious pioneers gathered cash from APGA, PDP, APC. Life doesn't rely upon the measure of cash you have. A religious pioneer ought to have the capacity to oversee destitution or abundance. Religious pioneers should quit being admirers of cash."

Remarking on religion and the pending races, the Methodist Prelate noticed that religion would not assume a job in the decision of presidential competitors in 2019.

Dr. Uche expressed that while the APC presidential competitor, President Muhammadu Buhari and the PDP applicant, Atiku Abubakar were the two Muslims, it would be of no outcome to Christians and different Nigerians.

The pastor stated, "Nigerians would vote in favor of the hopefuls of the two major gatherings and they are the two Muslims; we couldn't care less about their religion, we just need somebody that can lead the country well.

"We will teach our individuals to cast a ballot as indicated by their still, small voice, the individual that we need is the one that can convey. We should develop above religious dogmatism.

"I go to Dubai on holidays and you don't catch wind of religion there. Those harping on religion are experiencing what I called 'compound stupendous ignoramus.'"

The Catholic Bishop of Sokoto, Mathew Kukah, scolded religious pioneers against fraternizing with government officials, taking note of that they should practice limitation.

He expressed that pastors must tell political hopefuls the state of the general population and request how the government officials intended to address the circumstance in the nation.
