The General Superintendent of Deeper Life Bible Church, Pastor Williams F. Kumuyi, has charged members of the church to register and collect their voter cards to enable them vote for a credible government in 2015 general elections.
He also stressed the need for Nigerians to shun ethno-religious sentiments while making the choice of leaders in the forthcoming polls.
Kumuyi spoke on Wednesday in Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital, while declaring open a three-day revival, in the state, in an event organised by Pastor Debo Taiwo.
He said, “I declare that all members of deeper life should go and get their voter cards so that we will vote for a credible government. Whoever is voted, if he is not doing the right thing, then we will have the right to complain.
“If we must vote for the right kind of people, we must exercise our right to vote”.
The well-respected pastor advised Nigerians to look at the past record of politicians and the manifesto of their parties in choosing their leaders in 2015.
“We should not vote for people because we are from the same area or of the same church. People should vote based on the credentials of the leaders. We have to look at the records of those that are contesting for us to elect credible leaders that will bring development.
“It won’t be wise for people to start voting for somebody because he is from your area or is a member of your church. This is the more reason why people should speak through the ballot by participating actively in the electoral system”.
Kumuyi also appealed to politicians to learn to accept defeat in elections while urging winners to be magnanimous in victory.
