PFN will oppose Muslim and Muslim presidential candidates in 2023.

The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) has rejected Muslim-Muslim presidential candidates in 2023, saying that the body of Christ will not vote for them.

Bishop Francis Wale Oke, the PFN's National President, stated on Saturday that Christians will not support any political party that runs a Muslim-Muslim ticket in the 2023 elections. 

This was expressed by the cleric during the celebration of the PFN's 30th anniversary in Osogbo, Osun State.

In a statement released by the state Director of Media, Bishop Seun Adeoye, Oke stated that Nigeria is a secular state and that Christians will not accept a situation in which the president and vice-president are Muslims. 

He also believes it would be inappropriate for a Muslim to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari after eight years in office.

"In Nigeria, the Church has said no to a Muslim-Muslim ticket. We intend to mobilize the church in opposition to such a political party. We will vote against the PFN since it has 65 million people. "

"Obasanjo passed over to Yar'adua, Yar'adua to Jonathan, Jonathan to Buhari, and who should Buhari hand over to if not a Christian?" He remarked. Oke urged all PFN members to make sure they had their PVCs and to vote out any wicked administration.
