Amaechi made the allegations on Tuesday, February 3,
during an APC governorship rally in the Emohua Local
Government Area of the state.

Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State has said that
the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had paid the sum
of N6 billion as bribe to some pastors in the country to
ensure that they campaign against the Presidential
candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Amaechi made the allegations on Tuesday, February 3,
during an APC governorship rally in the Emohua Local
Government Area of the state.
The governor said further that after the clerics collected
the bribe, they began to spread propaganda against
Buhari claiming that he plans to Islamize Nigeria.
“Some pastors collected N6bn and they are circulating
document and telling you not to vote for an Hausa
man; not to vote for a Muslim; that they want to
Islamise Nigeria. Tell them to return our N6bn,”
Amaechi said.
“They gave them N6bn; they should return it to the
Federal Government coffers. They will tell you that
Buhari wants to Islamise Nigeria; tell them we are too
educated. I am a Catholic, but no Catholic priest has
told me that story right now in the Catholic Church
because I will ask him how? If any pastor tells you
that, tell him to return the money,” he added.
“Nobody can Islamise Nigeria; they have
commercialised Jesus Christ. They should stop
commercialising Jesus Christ. He is our Lord and
Saviour. You know what Jesus Christ did in the temple;
he chased them away. We shall chase away those
pastors who have collected money from PDP to tell us
lies. We shall chase them away on behalf of our Lord
Jesus Christ,” Amaechi continued.
Amaechi, who is the Director-General of the APC
Presidential Campaign Council, also said that the PDP’s
claims were false because Nigerians were too
enlightened for the country to be Islamized.
