The spiritual father of Cherubim and Seraphim (C&S) Movement Church Worldwide, Most Rev. Samuel Abidoye, has urged politicians to rule and run the country with the fear of God as the 2019 elections approach.
Abidoye urged leaders looting public funds to change from their ways and embrace honesty, pointing out that some politicians were not true in carrying out their duties.
The cleric, while speaking on Sunday at the 2018 annual adult thanksgiving and harvest programme tagged: “Harvest of Kingdom Exploits’’, said, “The old politicians are not like the new ones. The old politicians take people more important but these ones do not mind if people they are leading are comfortable or not.
“Most of our politicians are not politicians. Some are looters, they want to take the whole money, and I don’t know what they want to do with such money.
“Such politicians have to be changed or we pray to God to remove them. That is why we are having problems.
“We appeal to our politicians to be careful and they should run a good country for us where many things will become possible.”
Abidoye, however, urged Nigerians to reduce the high rate of killings in the country and stay peacefully wherever they found themselves.
He also urged Christians to embrace the Yuletide with love, peace and harmony, stressing that everybody should pray for peace and harmony.
He observed that the issue of killing is nearly everywhere not just in Nigeria, it is terrible even on the newspapers we read; the first thing we see is killings, where are we going?
Abidoye said, “We should remember that Nigeria is our country; we have no place to go.
“Where some are comfortable and some are not comfortable, eventually there will be eruption. People will not wait anymore and once they come to reality, they do not mind the violence.
“I am appealing to everybody to take up prayer and make prayer your power and I am sure God will help us. Everybody should pray because we have to return to God.
“Let us pray for Nigeria to send helpers to us and make Nigerians to respect each other. I am not very happy with what is experienced in the northern part of our country.”
