Primate of The African Church, Dr. Emmanuel Josiah Udofia has urged politicians to eschew evil and ensure that the 2019 general elections are conducted peacefully.

Fielding questions from journalists during his 60th birthday in Lagos, recently Primate Udofia reminded politicians that there is no other country aside Nigeria, and its peace is the peace of all.

He said: “They should know that it is not good to plan evil against another person, because the Bible says the evil that men do live after them. The same Scripture also says whatever a man sows, that he shall reap.”


For those planning to rig elections, buy votes or do other wicked things to get political office, the cleric charged them, including the electorates to fear God, without which no good thing can happen.

“Anybody that fears God cannot kill and will never recruit other people’s children as thugs, when his own children are abroad. INEC should also provide enabling environment for every political party to thrive,” he said.

Earlier in his sermon, head of the church lamented that religious leaders no longer speak the truth because of what they have taken and eaten. He implored Christians to be steadfast as well as say the truth always.

The guests described the primate as a humble and purposeful visionary leader, whose aim is to improve on the achievement met on ground and to strengthen the love towards one another among denominations and to work towards the spiritual growth of Christ followers.
