The General-Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries, Apostle Johnson Suleman, has called on his congregants to vote for who will rather “steal” their money than “take off” their neck.
Naija News reports that the Apostle, who predicted the postponement of the 2019 general elections, made this comment in a church service at his headquarters in Auchi, Edo state, Southern Nigeria on Sunday.
His words: “When they say Apostle has not been talking, I am not going to be talking spiritual thing from the spirit that’s the truth. Apostle who should I vote for? Are you going to vote for who will kill you?
“Even if you’re deaf, can’t you see? Let anybody be angry, I will say what I want to say. Never vote for anybody that will cut off your neck, I say so, we may consider it, take it to the internet, take it anywhere.
“Listen, we may not have a better option, we may not have a better whatever, but the man that will steal your money is better than the one that will take your life, I have spoken,” he added.
Meanwhile, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) postponed the Presidential and the National Assembly elections by one week citing logistics challenges.
Naija News reports that the Commission also postponed the governorship and state assembly elections, it will now hold on March 9.
Giving a reason for the decision, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu said the decision was taken after a careful review of the plan for the exercise.
“Following a careful review of the implementation of its logistics and operational plan and the determination to conduct free, fair and credible elections, the commission came to the conclusion that proceeding with the elections as scheduled is no longer feasible,” he said.
“Consequently, the commission has decided to reschedule the Presidential and National Assembly Elections to Saturday, 23 February 2019.
“Furthermore, the Governorship, State House of Assembly and Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Area Council Elections is rescheduled to Saturday 9th March 2019. This will afford the Commission the opportunity to address identified challenges in order to maintain the quality of our elections,” Yakubu said.
