News: Papa David Oyedepo Speaks – It’s Shameful Politicians Are Proud Of Rigged Elections
Founding Senior Pastor of the Living Faith Church, also known as Winners’ Chapel, Bishop David Oyedepo, has commented on the last presidential and National Assembly elections, which he said was marred with widespread rigging.
According to Vanguard,
Oyedepo, speaking at the church headquarters in Ota, Ogun state on Sunday, said the election was marred with irregularities, but prayed that Nigeria will not experience another war as a result of the polls. He said:
“OTHER DEVELOPED COUNTRIES AROUND THE WORLD HAD DEVELOPED THEIR MODE OF VOTING INTO A DIGITISED METHOD, BUT IT’S A SHAME THAT IN NIGERIA, WE STILL QUEUE UP TO VOTE, AND SOMEBODY WOULD STILL BE INTIMIDATED BY THUGS.
WITH THESE, IT’S A SHAME HOW POLITICIANS IN THIS PART OF THE WORLD ARE PROUD OF ELECTIONS MARRED WITH RIGGING.
IN COVENANT UNIVERSITY, ANY STUDENT CAUGHT INDULGING IN EXAMINATION MALPRACTICE, IS GONE. IT DOES NOT MATTER IF HIS OR HER FATHER IS THE HEAD OF UNITED NATIONS OR NOT.”
He prayed against bloodbath in any part of the country in the forthcoming governorship and house of assembly elections.
