Anambra politicians campaign in Churches, Mosques

Ahead of the March 28 and April 11 general elections, politicians have taken their campaigns to churches and mosques in Anambra State.

Those mostly affected by the latest development are members or candidates of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

At the St. Faith Pro-Cathedral church in Awka last Sunday, one of the PDP candidates who donated 50,000 naira to support the church, campaigned openly at the church.

It had become a ritual every Sunday in some of the churches and mosques.

On why the campaigns had taken such dimension in the state, one of the candidates, who pleaded for anonymity, told the Nation yesterday, said it was to seek God’s intervention.

Fear has gripped contestants because of the quality of opposition.

Majority of the seats are being contested by candidates of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), All Progressive Congress (APC) and the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).
