Oyedepo said, “Nigeria has witnessed a wide range of security challenges. We have faced that gruesomely for the last eight years. People claim responsibility for killings and are walking on the streets. They take a sword in today’s world and cut off a man’s neck. Then somebody is coming again to say this is what they will do, let them tell us what they have done.”
Oyedepo went further to caution against blind loyalty to political parties at the expense of the future of Nigeria.
The cleric said, “Listen to me, there is no party without members of this church. There are founders of parties who are members of this church but we are talking about the nation, not a party. We are talking about the people, not a party, no tribe owns Nigeria, the presidency is not a traditional stool.”
Speaking further Oyedepo said, “Vote wisely, vote your conscience, vote the future of your children, vote the future of the coming generation, vote the future of one Nigeria.”
