APC alleges fresh plot to use religion for election campaign

2015-02-19 15:34

Lagos - The All Progressives Congress (APC) Thursday raised fresh alarm of a plot by desperate politicians to circulate leaflets, in mosques and churches, asking Muslims to only vote for Muslims in the forthcoming elections, reports Vanguard.

The party said the plot is in line with the track record of politicians who have consistently used religion to divide Nigerians in order to feather their political nest.

Lai Mohammed, the party’s National Publicity Secretary, said the latest strategy is to pitch Christians against Muslims through the circulation of the leaflets.
