Senior Pastor of Father’s Touch Ministry Church in Nyanya, Abuja, Pastor Evans Idoko, has accused politicians of using religion and ethnicity to divide Nigerians.

Idoko stated this during his Sunday sermon at the Church.

According to him, “It is regrettable that the unity of Nigerian is strengthened during sporting activities and otherwise becomes the case during electioneering activities.

“It is an indication that politicians have taken pleasure in using religion to divide Nigerians against themselves for political or selfish reasons. It must stop forthwith! Nigerians must resist it because it will take us nowhere.”

He called for peace ahead of the 2019 elections.

“As 2019 political activities gather momentum, we appeal to politicians seeking elective offices to eschew hatred and bitterness, and promote courses that will promote peace and unity among Nigerians,” he said.
