Borno Pastor writes GMB

A Borno State-born Pastor Kallamu Musa-Dikwa on Wednesday wrote President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari on the need to support the emergence of a northern Christian as the Speaker of the House of Representatives in the 8th Assembly.
It will be recalled that Dikwa had, during the electioneering campaign, accused President Goodluck Jonathan of allegedly bribing officials of the Christian Association of Nigeria to support his presidential ambition in the 2015 election.                         
The cleric noted that it would be in the interest of the incoming administration to have somebody from the North-East to head the House of Representatives.
In a three-page letter to Buhari, the pastor said the Christian community in the North-East were watching with keen interest the plots by the leadership of the All Progressive Congress to scheme out and marginalised Christians in the region “in the yet to be announced power sharing arrangements of the party.”
Dikwa told the President-elect that there were party stalwarts that were already insensitive to the distribution of position by consciously scheming out Christian representatives in the National Assembly.
