Buhari, Jonathan not fit to rule Nigeria, says Borno cleric who exposed N7b bribe to CAN

The Borno-based cleric who accused the Christian Association of Nigeria of collecting N7 billion bribe from President Goodluck Jonathan, on Tuesday, lambasted both Mr. Jonathan and the Presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress, Muhammadu Buhari.

The pastor, Kallamu Dikwa, while reiterating his accusation against CAN during a Press Conference at the Nigeria Union of Journalists correspondent chapel, Kaduna, also said Mr. Jonathan failed to tackle corruption and insecurity as President and that Mr. Buhari is not the right person for Nigeria.

Mr. Dikwa, who is the Pastor of Ekilisiyar Yan’uwa a Nigeria in Maiduguri and the Chief Executive Officer​ ​of Voice of Northern Christian Movement, stormed the correspondent chapel secretariat with ​a ​42-page document to support his claim against CAN, Mr. Jonathan and Mr. Buhari.

“Buhari has incited youth because of his utterances in 2003 and 2011. I am praying that God will stop both Buhari and Jonathan and bring someone out.

“God has not revealed anyone to me and former Vice President Atiku Abubakar is also not good. Governor Rochas Okorocha and Governor Musa Kwankwaso could have been better candidates if they had the chance because they have actually worked for their States,” he said.

The Pastor said he is unruffled by death threats he frequently receives because of his insistence that a N7b bribe was paid to CAN by the President. He said “I was at a time invited by the SSS​”​.

“I don’t work for anybody whether President Jonathan or Gen Buhari. The Presidency knows me since when I started publishing about Boko Haram in 2010.

“I stand for righteousness and fighting for the life of the people and we must stand up to defend the people. This stand has made the national body of CAN to deny ever knowing me as a member.

The General Secretary of CAN said I am not a pastor. Those saying they do not know me as a pastor are telling lies and I am here also with copy of my certificate from All Nation for Christ Bible Institute International, Benin City,” he said.

“My first disagreement with CAN was because of my vehement protest on the receipt of 50 thousand US dollars by Borno State CAN for Boko Haram victims by Nigerians in USA which was not shared to the victims of the insurgency,” he alleged.
