2023: CAC cautions Nigerians against vote trading

2023: CAC cautions Nigerians against vote trading Nigerians have been forewarned by the Christ Apostolic Church to refrain from mortgaging their future by casting commercial ballots in the general elections of 2023.

The warning was given at a press conference on Thursday evening by Prophet Hezekiah Oladeji, General Evangelist of CAC (Nigeria and Worldwide), ahead of a programme with the theme "Praise The Lord for His Mercy endureth forever" that was set to take place on Friday and Saturday at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium in Abuja.

Additionally, he urged the establishment of a body that would provide voter education to the populace.

The cleric said, “Don’t allow them (politicians) to use your life as a sacrifice for the coming election. Don’t sell your tomorrow for the coming election because of money.

“Don’t allow anything whatsoever to mortgage your future. Don’t allow any candidate to buy you because the future you are looking at is very close to you.

“Those who sold their votes during the 2015 and 2019 elections did not do anything tangible with it. My advice for all Christians, our forefathers prayed and God answered them.

“So, let’s pray in our closets. If only we know this God, and He will answer us. Those of us who will vote, don’t because you want to vote your choice, do anything contrary to the will of God.

“A lot of people want to revenge evil during elections by burning houses, and killing people. If you didn’t get it right in politics, go back to what you have been doing.

“To correct the mistakes, the government should establish an agency that will teach the electorate voter education.”
