It’s a shame politicians are proud of rigged elections — Oyedepo
The Bishop of the Living Faith Church, also known as Winners Chapel, David Oyedepo has lampooned Nigeria’s recent presidential and national assembly elections, which he said was marred with widespread rigging.
Speaking during the Sunday service at the Church headquarters in Ota, Ogun State, the Bishop prayed Nigeria would not experience another war as a result of the remaining elections, but mocked the irregularities that riddled the exercise in some polling units.
Oyedepo 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, however prayed that there won’t be any bloodbath in any part of Nigeria as a result of the forthcoming governorship and house of assembly elections, saying: “Every spirit of thuggery in Nigeria shall be silenced and every forces that would not let Nigeria rest shall be laid to rest and silenced forever.”
