- An Anglican Bishop has called for the support of any political party focused on moving Nigeria forward
- Rt. Reverend Samuel Ezeofor said the ruling party has disappointed Nigerians
- According to him, the All Progressives Congress since taking leadership in 2015 has moved Nigeria backwards
The Anglican Bishop of Aguata Diocese, Rt. Reverend Samuel Ezeofor, has called on Nigerians to support any of the political parties that would move the nation forward.
Ezeofor while speaking at the Basilica of St. James the Great Cathedral, Atani, headquarters of Anglican Diocese of Ogbaru, during the enthronement of Rt. Rev. Prosper Amah as the second Bishop of Ogbaru Diocese, said the ruling party has disappointed Nigerians.
The Bishop said what is important now is for politicians to look around and find out which of the parties that will move the nation forward and then join the bandwagon.
Vanguard reports that Ezeofor said the All Progressives Congress since taking leadership in 2015 has moved Nigeria backwards.
He said: “APC has moved us backward and if we must progress, we must do the needful by leaving the APC which could not lead Nigeria to the promised land and queue behind a party that can guarantee our progress because we must progress as a nation since Nigeria is bigger than a single individual or APC as a political party."
Ezeofor also urged the new bishop who took over from him as the Anglican Bishop of Ogbaru to surpass his footprints in Ogbaru Diocese by completing the structures he started and at the same time, lead the Anglican faithful to God.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously reported that a member of the House of Representatives from Kano state, Abdulmumin Jibrin, claimed that not less than four governors on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are working for the APC.
Jibrin while speaking in Abuja on Wednesday, August 1, said the ruling party have a cross-party arrangement.
He also said the APC still remains strong despite losing some key members.
