The Spiritual Father/Chairman, Cherubim and Seraphim Movement Worldwide, Dr. Samuel Abidoye, has urged politicians to avoid spilling the blood of fellow human beings in their quest to occupy public offices ahead of the 2019 general elections.
Abidoye said Nigerian politicians and the electorate should display political and spiritual maturity by conducting their campaigns in a peaceful manner.
The cleric stated this in his New Year message to Nigerians, which he read to his congregation on Sunday.
According to him, with the expected commencement of the campaigns for the 2019 elections in August, following the release of the guidelines and the schedule of activities for the polls, politicians would once again begin to make strenuous efforts to either gain or retain power.
He, however, enjoined them not to be too desperate by resorting to shedding the blood of other Nigerians on the altar of partisan politics.
“2018 is another year of engaging in campaigns, politicking and political arithmetic, either to gain power or retain power. Please, let’s be politically and spiritually mature and be careful not to engage in politics of bloodshed,” Abidoye said.
The cleric also enjoined the President Muhammadu Buhari administration to take drastic measures to address the falling standard of education and resuscitating the technical schools in order to produce more employers of labour across the country.
Abidoye enjoined all Nigerians to continue to pray for the country, adding that they should give the Buhari administration more time to fight corruption and put the country on a path of greatness once again.
Speaking on what Nigerians should expect in the New Year, the cleric said, “I’m enthusiastic to inform you that 2018 is going to be a very fruitful year because as the months progress, so shall your blessings increase. A lot shall reach their stardom while lots of celebrities and politicians shall be heard of no more.”
