2023: Nigeria needs God-fearing leaders- Arch Bishop Omonkhuale
From JONATHAN AWANYAI, Asaba
Arch Bishop Moses Omonkhuale, National President of Niger Delta Bishops Voice and Ministers Forum has said that the concern of every Nigerian should be to pray to God to give the country leaders that have the fear of God, who, according to him, will clear the present mess that the nation has found herself in.
Omonkhuale, who expressed this view while speaking with newsmen in Asaba, Delta State capital on Monday lamented the high rate of corruption, kidnappings, rape and killings presently ravaging the country.
He also decried the various socio-economic and political challenges facing the country including national economic downturn, and poor management of the education sector.
According to the man of God, praying for a divinely appointed leader who will clear the present mess in the country should be the focus of attention for Christians.
He argued that the idea of Muslim-Muslim ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the next elections will hurt Nigeria because it negates principles of justice, fairness, and equity.
The cleric called on Christian faithful across the country to mobilise for PVC collection to exercise their civic duty in the coming general elections.
He added that the collection of their permanent voter’s cards would also assist them to elect credible leaders that would foster peace and religious balance in the political space of the nation.
