We will Curse anyone who advocates for an interim government, Rivers Cleric warns

The group, known as Rivers Pastors Unite for Tinubu, declared its support for Bola Tinubu and Babagana Shettima for the 2023 presidential election. They accused those pushing for an interim government of being enemies of progress and warned them against destabilizing the country's democracy. The statement was jointly signed by the coordinators of the group, Pastor Sunday Edimeh, founder of One Life Bible Church Port Harcourt, and Pastor Julius Dan of the Apostolic Church of Nigeria.

The Rivers Pastors Unite for Tinubu claimed that not all pastors worked against the emergence and victory of Bola Tinubu in the last election. The clerics also noted that they only interfaced with Tinubu's structure through the former Osun State Commissioner for Works, Engr. Remi Omowaiye, and had declared their support for Tinubu before the election. The group warned those calling for an interim government to either desist from it or face the wrath of God.

Nigeria's political climate has been tense in recent times, with various groups calling for a change in leadership. The threat of an interim government has been raised by some groups as a way to resolve the current political impasse. However, the Rivers Pastors Unite for Tinubu have vowed to resist such a move, calling it undemocratic and a threat to Nigeria's stability. The statement by the clerics is likely to generate controversy and further deepen the divisions in Nigeria's already polarized political landscape.
