Anambra polls: Church rejects use of name for campaign
The Anglican Communion in Anambra state has warned politicians to avoid using its name in campaigns ahead of the November 18 governorship polls.
"It has come to the notice of the Anglican Church that some candidates of political parties are using the name of the Church to score political points,” the church’s laity council said in a statement signed by its Public Relations Officer Samson Okonkwo.
“Such candidates are going about informing their followers and indeed the general public that they consulted the leadership of church in choosing their gubernatorial running mates thereby giving the impression that the Anglican Church supports their partisan interest.
“We are constrained to use this medium to advise candidates of political parties to restrain from drawing the Church into partisan politics which is abhorred in its entirety by the leadership of the Church.” the statement read.
