“So, secure your PVC and vote your own choice. We must produce leaders with integrity and a good track record, who follow not the logic of the survival of the fittest, but the survival of the weakest, therefore, a nation where truth and justice will reign.”
Shun prophets of doom, Catholic priest urges
The Catholic priest added that Nigerians should shun “prophets of doom”.
“I ask Nigerians to shun prophets of doom who around this time annually come up with hackneyed, visions and messages of doom. Better to listen more to Jesus who says: “Do not be afraid, I am with you”, “I am the way the truth and the life,” he said.
He cited Ghana where the government has issued an arrest warrant against fake prophets, noting that Nigerians can also borrow a leaf.
“What use is prophetic declarations that do not eventually bring people nearer to God,” Bajedo asked.
