THE Catholic Bishop of Yola Diocese, His Lordship, Dr. Stephen Mamza, has advised President-elect, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, not to appoint anyone that is less than three years as a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), saying that the recent Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) members that decamped to APC are not only a threat to Buhari’s government, but that they are worse than the Biblical Judas that betrayed Jesus Christ.

The bishop, who spoke yesterday while addressing his congregation at St. Augustine’s Catholic Church, Bekaji in Yola, said that the recent PDP members that are decamping to APC proved that they are not principles politicians and they did not have love for democracy to grow in the country.

“My special advice to the President-elect is that he should not give appointment to anyone that is less than three years in APC. This will help him to build a government that is based on the APC agenda, but if he makes a mistake to mix his government with the PDP members who are in APC for appointments, he will disappoint those that elected him.

“If these PDP members that are running to APC are principles people and they love democracy, they will remain in PDP and rebrand the party for the next elections. But rushing to APC confirmed that they are only in politics for their selfish interest and not for the development of the country. I respect those PDP members that are still in PDP, they are the true democrats of this country”, he stated.

He said that the action of the PDP decampees confirmed that they betrayed their former party during the recently-concluded general elections, which the party lost to APC.

Mamza, who cautioned Buhari strongly against giving appointments to any of the PDP member that decamped to APC, said that the recent PDP members that are joining APC are serious threat to the government of Buhari and that they are not coming to APC to help develop Buhari’s administration, but to sink the party in the same way they sunk President Goodluck Jonathan’s government.

“Buhari should learn his lesson from the way these Judas sinkJonathan. They are now regrouping in APC so that they will also sink Buhari. APC national leadership should be at alert because they are welcoming danger in the party. So, they should prepare for the consequences ahead of them. Please, you media men that are here, make sure you use your organisations to take my message to Buhari in the interest of our country”, he said.
