President Buhari today advised religious leaders not to get involved in partisan politics otherwise they would lose public respect.
President Buhari gave the advice while delivering his speech at the Interfaith Conference held at Sheraton Hotel, Abuja.
“Having witnessed the roles our religious leaders have been playing so far, I appeal to them to eschew partisan politics and appeal to their respective members to read the manifestos of each political party, discuss and pray for God’s guidance before casting their votes.
Religious leaders should not be seen to involve themselves in partisan politics or political controversies. Otherwise, they risk losing their status and public respect.” President Buhari said.
