"Our laws forbid the use of religion or tribe to campaign" Deji Adeyanju urges INEC to disqualify candidates visiting churches and mosques

Aug 30, 2022

Deji Adeyanju has asked the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to disqualify candidates who visit churches or mosques to get voters’ support ahead of the 2023 general elections.


Adeyanju said Tuesday, August 30, that Nigerian law forbids the use of religion or tribe to campaign.


The social media activist wrote: “2023: INEC should disqualify candidates that go to churches or mosques to campaign or solicit for support/votes. Our laws forbid the use of religion or tribe to campaign.”



Earlier, Adeyanju had advised the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, to start building structures instead of going to churches like someone seeking to become the CAN president.


On Tuesday morning, he mocked the deputy governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State, Funke Akindele, for being in a church service.


“Watching the video of Funke Akindele, PDP Deputy Guber candidate campaigning or sorry, worshipping in a Lagos church is hilarious. She almost went into a trance in the process. Politicians should keep their politics away from church,” Adeyanju posted on Facebook.
