The Prelate of Methodist Church Nigeria, Dr Samuel Uche, has declared that politicians who promote any form of violence in the 2019 election will face God’s wrath.
The prelate also reminded the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) that the commission would be held responsible by God if the results of the elections were manipulated
NAN reports that Uche spoke in Onitsha on Monday in an interview with newsmen shortly after giving succour to some victims of flood in Anambra State.
He called for free and fair polls where the wishes of the people were respected while urging politicians not to impose themselves on the people they wished to lead.
“Anybody that kills in the name of seeking for power will never enjoy that power; he may get the power but will never enjoy it”, he said.
While noting that no Nigerian ought to be poor, because of the enormous wealth God had bestowed on the country, the prelate critised the accumulation of wealth and waste of resources by politicians.
“Those who go into public offices rather go there to amass wealth for themselves and their families and those who make promises but do not fulfill them are dangerous politicians.
“I am advising Nigerians to be careful in electing such people but should only elect people with compassion,” Uche added.
