The Catholic Diocese of Pankshin in Plateau state has disassociated itself from the actions of Rev. Fr. Kefas Gogwim, who on Sunday, June 12, did not allow parishioners into the church for not having their Permanent Voters Card PVC ahead of the 2023 elections.
In a viral video, the clergyman could be seen stopping parishioners at the entrance of the church. He asked those with their PVCs to enter the church hall while those without their PVCs to return home. He said his action is to encourage his members to ensure they get their PVCs so they can participate in the forthcoming general elections.
However, in a statement released, the Director of Communications of the Diocese, Rev Fr. Andrew Dewan Danjuma, stated that the action of the priests does not have the approval of the Bishop nor is it a policy of the diocese.
