Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) has admonished the public to do their utmost to participate in the forthcoming 2019 general elections and vote for only God-fearing candidate in order to bring about a better Nigeria.
Adeboye said this on Sunday, May 6, during his speech to newsmen just after a thanksgiving service themed Hope for the hopeless at the RCCG national headquarters in Ebute-Metta, Lagos, the Punch reports.
The cleric, who was represented by Pastor Johnson Odesola, the assistant general overseer, administration and personnel (RCCG) said: “There is hope with God on our side, let’s be hopeful. Nigerians should look out for credible people, God fearing people.
“Everyone should get their Permanent Voter Card; that’s our power. Every Christian should exercise their civic right of voting for the right person of their choice because the Bible says give unto Caesar what is Caesar’s and the word of God enjoins us to pray for kings and those who are in authority.”
He stated that there is a crying need to keep sensitising eligible voters elect only credible people who will fight against corruption.
Adeboye pleaded with members of the National Assembly to pass the 2018 appropriation bill, emphasising that the second quarter of the year was almost over.
Adeboye remarked: "They should serve national interest and not their interest even if they have issue, they should pass it while they are working on the issue. That’s why they are there; that’s why we talk about next year’s elections. Those who will not serve national interest should be shown the way out.”
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com reported that Adeboye had commented on various issues facing the country.
The nation at that moment was going through economic challenges with increasing inflation rate, with hardship following the removal of subsidy on petrol which had put the price of the product at N145 per litre.
