A group under the aegis of Northern Christian Leaders Eagle Eyes Forum (NCLEEF) has said that its leaders have been receiving death threats for endorsing the All Progressives Congress (APC)’s, presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari.
Addressing a news conference in Kaduna on Friday, the chairman of the Forum, Pastor Aminchi Habu, said President Goodluck Jonathan’s tenure in the past six years was a disappointment to Nigerians; particularly the Christian community.
Pastor Habu said it was based on this that the Christian Forum decided to ditch Jonathan and endorse General Buhari who they believe could rid the country of insecurity.
“Our decision to endorse Buhari was informed by our commitment to build a free, fair and a secular society where the inheritance should be justice to all,” said Habu.
“After the endorsement, our members, especially the chairman of this forum, have continued to receive threatening phone calls and text messages, calling us a sell-out group who have abandoned a Christian candidate in the person of President Goodluck Jonathan.
