The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has reacted to claims by Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers state that Nigerian pastors were given a N6bn bribe to campaign against Muhammadu Buhari, Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
According to PUNCH, PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh said, ''It is a crime to the Church and Christianity. It is an insult on Christianity. To say that pastors are paid to support the President is height of recklessness. Such allegation is despicable and should be condemned. There was nothing like that from us as a party and there was nothing like that from our candidate''.
Also, Rivers state Assistant Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Samuel Nwanosike, challenged Amaechi, to name the pastors that collected the N6bn.
