Cleric sues for peace at guber, state assembly elections


Rt. Rev. Dr. Humphrey B. Olumakaiye

Bishop of Lagos, Anglican Communion, Reverend Humphrey Bamisebi Olumakaiye, has advised Nigerians to accept the results of the presidential election and be grateful to God for all things.

He also charged Nigerians to believe that God has given the country the right leaders to steer the ship of leadership for another four years.

Olumakaiye spoke at Tafawa Balewa Square during a rally organised by 14 Archdeaconries of the Diocese in continuation of celebration of the Church’s centenary anniversary and building of its Centenary City.


He enjoined Nigerians to continue to pursue peace before, during and after the March 9, 2019 governorship and states Houses of Assembly polls, knowing that chaos would do the country no good.

He called on opposition parties to ensure that whatever grievances they have are legitimately tendered peacefully and give the interest of Nigeria first priority.

“Politicians should always put the interest of the country and Nigerians first in the pursuit of their rights. While I do not oppose their moves to claim their rights, this should be done in a peaceful manner that would not set Nigeria ablaze or constitute a cog in the wheel of progress for the country,” he added.
