The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has denied allegations of bribery levelled against it by Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State.

Amaechi had earlier accused the PDP of paying bribes of N6 billion to some pastors to make them campaign against the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Muhammadu Buhari.

The allegations has however been denied by the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Olisa Metuh.

“Pastors are revered people and to bring their character into disrepute is a sin before God. We do not think anybody, let alone somebody who is a Christian, can make such a statement. We challenge the Director General of the APC to name such pastors and where the money is coming from,” Metuh said during a press briefing in Abuja on Wednesday, February 4.

“This attack is capable of bringing Christians and Muslims into a major disagreement and major dispute. If truly the person who issued this statement is a Catholic as he said, we are asking him to go for confession,” he added.

“The APC have been saying they were on top of the election, but now that it is obvious that PDP is on top, that President Goodluck Jonathan will win the election, they have resorted to causing mayhem,” he said.

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