The National Christian Elders’ Forum has told Nigerians not to vote candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC).
This warning came from the National Chairman of the NCEF, Solomon Asemota (SAN) in a press conference on Sunday.
Asemota described the two parties as “evil,” calling on voters to look out for alternatives.
“Nigerians must begin to clamour for new candidates and new political parties,” he said.
“It is not too late to mobilise and dismiss the current political class that devalued naira by over 1,600 per cent from 1999 to 2018 and, at the same period, increased the price of fuel by 625 per cent.
“Jointly, the PDP and the APC impoverished and pauperised Nigerians and turned the country into the poverty capital of the world.
“It makes sense to reject the two frontline parties, the APC and the PDP, for lack of credible performance.
“We are persuaded that the nation should feel compelled, within the next few months, to look in another direction for its salvation.
“If that is not done, Nigerians would have willingly jumped from the fire into the furnace. We are already sensitised as to what is ahead with the slogan – ‘two evils.’
“NCEF is convinced that if Nigerians are truly desirous of good governance, then all Nigerians have need to be diligent to look outside of these two major parties.”
