Reports say a group under the aegis of Northern Christian Leaders Eagle Eyes Forum (NCLEEF) has claimed that its leaders have been receiving death threats for endorsing the All Progressives Congress (APC)’s, presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari.
Christian group says it's being threatened for endorsing Buhari
Pastor Habu said it was based on this that the Christian Forum decided to ditch Jonathan and endorse General Buhari who they believe could rid the country of insecurity
It was gathered from Tribune that the chairman of the Forum, Aminchi Habu during a news conference said President Goodluck Jonathan’s tenure in the past six years was a disappointment to Nigerians; particularly the Christian community.
Pastor Habu said it was based on this that the Christian Forum decided to ditch Jonathan and endorse General Buhari who they believe could rid the country of insecurity.
“Our decision to endorse Buhari was informed by our commitment to build a free, fair and a secular society where the inheritance should be justice to all,” said Habu.
“After the endorsement, our members, especially the chairman of this forum, have continued to receive threatening phone calls and text messages, calling us a sell-out group who have abandoned a Christian candidate in the person of President Goodluck Jonathan."
