The All Progressives Congress (APC) has warned people of influence in the country against making remarks that could incite ethnoreligious fracas.
In a statement obtained by Premium Times Sunday, February 2, the ruling party reacted to the ‘prayer protests’ held under the instruction of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN).
APC in its statement said: “The commentaries that trail the menace of the Boko-Haram and other criminal elements are assuming a dangerous ethnoreligious slant, unfortunately, influenced by insensitive and selfish partisan narratives by shortsighted groups and individuals.”
The party went on to note that people of influence should not promote the recent attacks by Boko Haram and the assault by the terrorists is to pitch the Christian and Muslims against one another.
Legit.ng previously reported that Adeboye, who is the GO of RCCG, joined members of his church in a prayer walk to express their displeasure over the rate of insecurity in Nigeria. Pastor Adeboye dressed in a green suit, carried a placard with the inscription, "All souls are precious to God".
The RCCG general overseer had enjoined members of his church to participate in the prayer walk which was directed by CAN to address the rise of killings across Nigeria.
No fewer than 25,000 parishes of the church on Sunday, February 2, were billed to have taken part in the nationwide prayer walk.
