Senator Shehu Sani, a Nigerian author, human rights activist and senator representing Kaduna State at the National Assembly, has taken to his official Twitter platform, to write his own opinion about the conduct of some Nigerian politicians especially as it has to do with places of worship such as churches and mosques, citing that politicians would allegedly leave churches and mosques after the election.

In his post, the federal lawmaker wrote “after the election, politicians will leave the mosques and churches for those seeking spiritual healing, deliverance and salvation”.

It is obvious that the pair form the senator comes as a form of criticism towards politicians who are trying to politicize religion by visiting religious houses and allegedly lobbying the religious leaders to help convince the faithfuls to vote for them during elections, and the post is also as a result of the rate at which politicians attend churches and mosques for religious events which they do not normally attend before, of which such attitude are ways in which they want to canvass for votes during elections.

However, many Nigerians have been cautioned to note the difference between politicians who visit churches because it’s in their nature and the ones who only go to churches during elections in order to convince the electorates to vote for them, and also they have been advised to try as much as possible to resist being told whom to vote for as whoever should be a leader should be someone with the competence and character to lead.
