According to Prophet Ugochukwu who addressed newsmen in Abuja on behalf of his colleagues, he said they attended the event to honor Shettima whom he said helped the Christians while he was the Governor of Borno State.

Although he clearly stated that they did not represent Christian Association of Nigeria as they went to the event as ‘clergymen and pastors called by God to serve in his vineyard and bring his word to our communities.’

Speaking to the newsmen at Abuja on Friday, July 22, Prophet Ugochukwu Ugokwe Prince, Founder; Muslims and Christian Love Foundation and Senior Pastor; Yoke Breakers Prophetic Ministry, Abuja on behalf of his colleagues said:

For several days now, we have watched with dismay the unwarranted controversy, insults on our persons, the abuse and the awful threats against our lives precipitated against our simple, patriotic attendance of an event.

“Our organization, Muslims and Christians Love Foundation is a religious organization with an objective of ensuring that a religious crisis does not precipitate within the Nigerian nation by any group or association.

“Where that is about to occur, our association has a divine responsibility either motivated or unmotivated to intervene. It is in the light of this that we found our attendance to the APC event necessary and patriotic. To this, we owe our association and the nation a responsibility. 

“Like hundreds of others, on the 20th of July, we were at the Yar’Adua Centre in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory, to attend the formal unveiling of Senator Kashim Shettima as the running mate to the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

“Our decision to attend this event was neither procured nor compelled. Rather, we chose, freely, to attend due to our sincere and genuine desire to express our goodwill and lend our support to a man whose tenure as the governor of Borno State heralded unprecedented support for the Christian faith in the region at the time.

“We were therefore appalled to see our intentions misrepresented and our integrity called into question. For the avoidance of doubt, we have never attempted to portray ourselves as representatives of the Christian Association of Nigeria. We went as clergymen and pastors called by God to serve in his vineyard and bring his word to our communities.

“This is a calling we have devoted ourselves to for several years. If anyone wishes to verify the truthfulness of this claim and maybe even join our respective ministries, we welcome you to visit our ministries.

“We thank those who have stood with us through this shocking experience. We will continue to pray for a peaceful and united Nigeria before, during, and after the 2023 General Elections. May God bless Nigeria and all Nigerians,” Prophet Ugochukwu said.
