The Prelate of the Methodist Church of Nigeria, Dr. Kalu Uche, said on Sunday that
Christians will not vote religious bigots, tribalists and wicked people in 2019.
In a sermon he delivered at the interdenominational church service to mark Democracy Day at the National Christian Center, Abuja, Uche declared that wicked people and religious bigot, can never smell any office in Nigeria.
“We will work against all those who plan to manipulate elections in Nigeria in 2019.
“We will never allow that. And let me tell you that if they fire their bullet at us, it will not penetrate because God is with us. The God of Elijah and Elisha is our God” he said.
Speaking further the clergyman said: “We will no longer allow impunity to reign in this country and I don’t belong to any political party, but I can influence at least two million Methodists in Nigeria, I can also influence other Christians.
“We will never vote in anybody that is lazy, anybody that is wicked, anybody that is a religious bigot, can never smell any office in this land. Those who mean well for Nigeria, God will preserve them.
“You know that there is no security in this country, there is so much bitterness, how can the economy thrive?”
Uche whose sermon was titled “I See Hope” there only be peace when leaders are tolerant, fair and just.
He maintained that the growing tension enveloping the country is a result of absence of peace and politics that is devoid of level playing.
“Though it is said that the worst of democracy is better than the best form of dictatorship, under democracy, our leaders have failed, toying with the nation’s democracy. Our people cannot even organise simple party primaries. What a shame!” he said.
He however said he was optimistic that Nigeria will overcome its challenges and things will work out well.
Also speaking at the occasion, Vice-President Yemi Osibanjo called on Nigerians not to be dampened by the challenges facing the country, assuring that the everything was being done to tackle them.
