Activist, Deji Adeyanju, has asked the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to disqualify candidates visiting churches and mosques to campaign ahead of the 2023 general election.

Adeyanju, who shared his thoughts on Tuesday, August 30, hinged his call on the fact that Nigeria’s law forbids candidates visiting Churches and Mosques to get voters’ support.

“Our laws forbid the use of religion or tribe to campaign,” Adeyanju posted on social media.

He wrote: “2023: INEC should disqualify candidates that go to churches or mosques to campaign or solicit for support/votes. Our laws forbid the use of religion or tribe to campaign.”

Earlier, he had advised the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, to start building structures instead of going to churches like someone seeking to become the  Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) president.

He also mocked the deputy governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State, Funke Akindele, for being in a church service.

“Watching the video of Funke Akindele, PDP Deputy Guber candidate campaigning or sorry, worshipping in a Lagos church is hilarious. She almost went into a trance in the process. Politicians should keep their politics away from church,” Adeyanju posted on Facebook.
