Christian clerics from the 16 local government areas of Taraba State have thrown their weight behind the gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Emmanuel Bwacha.

The clerics, while addressing the press after their meeting in Jalingo, said Senator Emmanuel Bwacha was the most prepared among those vying for the governorship of the state.

The cleric stated that they represented over 400 pastors from across the state while distancing themselves from the alleged endorsement of the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Kefas Agbu, by the state chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN.

The Rev John Chioke, who spoke for the clerics during the press conference, said they won’t be a party to the division of the Christian community in the state.

“We are representing over 400 pastors across the state, and what the church in Taraba needs is unity and not division. However, Bwacha’s antecedents as a lover of peace and crusader of tolerance is what the state needs at this time,” he said

He urged people of the state, irrespective of religious or ethnic background, to go all out and vote Bwacha because of his capacity and experience.
