His Eminence, Samuel Uche, the Prelate, Methodist Church Nigeria, ahead of the 2019 general election, has revealed that the church will give its support for young Nigerians aspiring for political post.

The decision was revealed at a press briefing on Monday to mark the end of the church’s 46th Conference and 11th Biennial Conference at Wesley Cathedral Methodist Church, Aba, Abia State.

Uche stated that the church would only support young aspiring candidates that are good and upright to make Nigeria better.

In the statement he disclosed that the church has a Political Evolution Monitoring Group to support the progressive political developments in Nigeria

The statement which was signed by Uche and the Conference Secretary, Rev. Michael Akinwade, saw the church announce its support for young aspiring politicians.

He took the opportunity to commend the Federal Government for signing into law the “Not too Young to Run Bill” to enable young people to be involved.

An enabling environment that will enhance the effectiveness of the law was demanded for.

The church said financial autonomy for local governments would enhance grassroots development.

We, therefore, appeal to those at the local governments not to divert funds accruing to them to white elephant projects.
