Okoh stated:

“The church should be non-partisan in election matters, it has a duty to ensure the people are properly guided in the choice of leaders they choose. If Nigerians can unite and forge a common front, the choice to turn around this country is in their hands."

Meanwhile, the Senior Pastor of Destiny Revival Ministry International, Godwin Okeke, has asked pastors who promote politicians in the church to stop it immediately.

He added:

“The church should play the role of informing, educating and sensitising, not supporting a particular candidate. They have the duty of exposing what each candidate stands for so that the people will be well informed.
“The church should be non-partisan because Jesus Christ died for all. A church should bring out the contest and put it on the ground for everybody to see and make informed decisions. That is the role of the church."
