A renowned cleric, Prophet Samuel Olu-Alo, has cautioned Nigerian youths against allowing themselves to be used as political thugs in the forthcoming general election.

Olu-Alo, who is the planter of the Christ Apostolic Church (CAC), Grace of Mercy Prayer Mountain, said the youths should know that they too can occupy top political positions in the future.

He spoke in Akure, Ondo State during the ministry’s 9th crusade and empowerment programme for 700 widows and the aged who were presented with food items and cash.

The man of God said: “Any youth ready to present himself as a political thug will be stabbing his or her future with a sword. Who told you that you too cannot be a governor or a senator in the future.

“Most of these top politicians have their own children and families living abroad. Whatever wrong you do today, people will remind you of it when you are seeking public office tomorrow.

“This is the reason why many don’t attain top positions today, their today is calling for revenge of their past wrong deeds, so don’t allow your future to be destroyed by politicians.

“If people can serve me who never went to school, you too can be served. Even if you are an orphan, you can be great in life and break records. My story encourages and gives hope.”

Olu-Alo, who called on Nigerians to intensify prayers for the country, said something will happen between this year and the next one.

Admonishing the people not to vote sentiment and shun vote trading, he urged them to vote according to their conscience.

He said: “Just go out on the day of the election, if it holds, vote for your conscience, not in anger and sentiment. Whatever you based your vote on, you will get within the next four years.”

“You will not regret your action since it comes from your mind and not that you are pushed into it. I am saying this because something will happen between now and in the next four years.

“If you say Igbo, Hausa or Yoruba, so be it. Just ensure it comes from your mind and don’t vote out of anger, envy, religious, culture or ethnic sentiment.”

The prophet who recently established Adamimogo Football Club and Adamimogo 93.1 FM, revealed that the Adamimogo Group of Schools will take off this year at Jesus City, Lagos.
