The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) on Wednesday said it is not bound by the prophecies of any individual as regards the forthcoming presidential election in 2019.
Bolaji Abdullahi, the party’s National Publicity Secretary, while responding in a chat with INDEPENDENT to a statement credited to Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, the fiery preacher who advised President Muhammadu Buhari not to seek re-election, said the APC as a political party is not run based on prophecies, which, according to him, “is a personal conviction or belief”.
Abdullahi, however, said anyone who feels the prophecies are true is at liberty to believe but added that the APC will only act and base its decisions on what is politically correct.
“We cannot run a political party by prophecy. Prophecy is a matter of personal conviction or personal belief. The party cannot act based on any kinds of prophecies because we are not operating on that. We only act based on what is politically correct. People are free to believe such prophecies but our party will not act or take critical decisions based on prophecies”, he said.
Mbaka had on Sunday night expressed disapproval of President Buhari’s leadership of Nigeria, and lamented that Nigerians had suffered untold hardship.
