Approach 2019 elections with God’s fear- Uja
• Calls For Issue-based Campaign
Executive Secretary, Nigerian Christian Pilgrims Commission (NCPC), Rev. Tor Uja has urged politicians to approach 2019 general elections with the fear of God, bearing in mind that it is only God that gives power and would be the ultimate decider.
He appealed to Nigerians to vote, as it is civic irresponsibility for eligible Nigerians not to vote. Speaking on the commission’s Areopagus Pilgrimage Open House billed for Tuesday in Abuja, Uja stressed that 2019 elections should be issue-based and void of foul language. The Executive Secretary said the commission would organise pilgrimage prayers in Jerusalem and Nigeria in January for the 2019 general elections.
Meanwhile, the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) governorship candidate, Hon. Labaran Maku has cautioned citizens of the state to shun tribal, religious and partisan politic of hatred and sentiment.
Addressing his supporters at the party’s Secretariat, yesterday, Maku expressed worry over some politicians’ desperation. The former minister urged politicians to put citizens’ lives first and not instigate any form of violence as the campaign season unfolds.
