The Archbishop Ecclesiastical Province of the Niger and Bishop of Awka Diocese, His Grace, Most Revd Alexander Chibuzo Ibezim, has revealed that All Progressives Congress (APC) will be disappointed in 2023 over its decision to field a Muslim-Muslim joint ticket.

Bishop Ibezim disclosed this while hosting members of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, (NUJ) Anambra state council led by Comrade Odogwu Emeka Odogwu PhD on Tuesday.

Speaking on the state of Anglican under his watch in Awka diocese, province of the Niger and the state of the nation, respectively, Archbishop Ibezim noted that the All Progressives Congress who chose the option of Muslim-Muslim ticket will be surprised at the outcome of the election, describing the move as insensitivity to the place of Christians in the country.

Though, the Anglican Prelate failed to disclose which among the contesting presidential candidates in the country he feels may clinch the seat of the presidency, he said the winner will boast a Christian-Muslim combination.

According to Archbishop Ibezim,  “I am looking at Christian-Muslim leadership. That is, Christian should be on top while Muslim comes under. That is what I’m looking at. But if one says it is Muslim-Muslim leadership the outcome will be a surprise because Christians cannot be categorized as nothing.

“We need to be holistic and truthful to ourselves, we must recognize that the church must not be played with.

“It is important that Christians should have a say in government because we are not second class citizens. By the time you start treating Christians as second class citizens, you have failed.

Archbishop Ibezim further blamed the reported endorsement of APC Vice-Presidential Candidates by an alleged team of fake bishops on the proliferation of churches in the country, warning that it is a sign of a satanic agenda to attack and disrupt the church.

“I can’t blame them because proliferation has entered into the church. Nowadays, many people dress up and call themselves bishops and through this, the enemy has been attacking the church.

He urged the people to be careful and avoid being induced into actions that will make them change their identity and enter enmity with Jesus Christ.

The foremost Anglican Prelate also lamented the sufferings of Nigerians in the hands of the federal government insisting that the government of the nation has repeatedly failed to deliver the required good governance it promised the people.

“The government has failed the country and the people are suffering. Our children have stayed almost six months at home doing nothing.

He said those at the corridors of power must wake up and live to their responsibility as the leaders of the country if the country should be revived again.
