Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Kwara Philip Adeyemo has said there would be surprises in the 2019 elections in Nigeria.
Adeyemo also warned politicians to be ready for the poll, saying that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is worse than the previous government of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He said this at the third session of the third synod of the diocese held at Cathedral Church of St. Paul, Omu-Aran, Kwara State recently.
“The ruling party came to power on the platform of the promise to fight corruption,” the clergyman added.
“By my own assessment, the ruling party is even worse than the other party before them who we crucified.
“Nigerians should not be carried away by campaign promises of politicians but look for and vote for those with integrity and who are ready to serve the nation in 2019.
“Our politicians in Nigeria are greedy, selfish and not interested in the lives of the people they govern. Proverbs 29: 7 Says ‘The righteous considereth the cause of the poor but the wicked regardeth not to know it.’”
According to him, “Task Masters have been fooling us, those who oppress and enslave us. I have not seen anyone among our politicians that are qualified to fight corruption, they are birds of the same feather flocking together.
“There will be surprises in 2019 election. Ecclesiastes 9:11 says ‘I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not for the swift nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bred to the wise, nor yet riches to the men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill, but time and chance happeneth to them all.’
“God has purposed to take over the helm of affairs of Nigeria, there will be a shaking and disappointments among our politicians.”
