SEGUN AWOFADEJI, BAUCHI
Spiritual Father and Chairman of Cherubim and Seraphim Movement Church(CSMC) Worldwide AYO NI O, Most Reverend (Prophet) Samuel Adefila Abidoye has warned politicians to eschew the win-at-all-cost syndrome that has enveloped the political scene of the nation in recent times, as we move towards the 2023 general elections.
Baba Aladura Abidoye also appealed to the electorate to go all out and get their Permanent Voter Cards so as to be able to vote for their preferred candidates during the forthcoming elections.
The CSMC Baba Aladura appeal stated this while speaking with newsmen at the International Headquarters of the Church, Gallilee land, Orile Igbon, Oyo State, on Friday.
He called on politians to play politics of maturity and stop politics of assassination and kidnapping of other aspirants.
The caution by the cleric may not be unconnected with recent rising incidence of killings and kidnappings as various political parties get engaged in their primary elections to pick their flagbearers for the 2023 general elections.
Baba Aladura Abidoye also enjoined politicians to prioritize the development of their various communities, immediate constituencies and the entire country above their personal ambitions.
According to him, “The well being of the masses, how the nation’s economy will grow and the citizens will be able to live happily, should be your uppermost goal rather than going after your perceived political opponents because you want power.”
He urged politicians to accept defeat and cooperate with whoever becomes the winner so as to move the country forward, rather than playing politics of calumny, and stressed that there is no gain in sending assassins, hoodlums or kidnappers after political opponents.
“This must stop so that we can witness a peaceful election in 2023,” he said.
Abidoye, however, appealed to the electorate to go all out and get their Permanent Voters Cards so as to be able to vote for their preferred candidates during the forthcoming elections.
“Please participate in all the political processes for you to vote for the candidate of your your choice, without any compromise or sentiment,” he added.
