Atiku, Tinubu or Obi: “Reject PDP, APC” Pastor Enenche tells Nigerians, reveals candidate they should vote for
In her remark, she noted that Nigeria is at a cross-road, and the 2023 presidential election remains crucial to the future of Nigeria and that Nigerians must choose between “life and death” and “blessings and curses.”
“We have before us life and death, blessings and curses. God says to choose life.
“You have seen the campaign, you have seen and heard the candidates, you have heard about the candidates, you have read about the candidates, you know who the candidates are.
“At this point in the game, it’s not going to be about religion, but religion is important because we are a religious people.
“Africans are religious people, Nigerians are a religious people, so religion matters. It has to be for religion because we have voted for religion before, and it didn’t help us.”
Pastor Omakwu seeks new direction for Nigeria
The influential Christian cleric noted that the 2023 presidential election is much more than a political party; rather, it would be about competence and the candidate who fears God.
“It is not going to be about party because we have voted the two parties. There have been two main parties in Nigeria. We have voted them and we have seen what all of them have done.”
She noted further that:
“Leadership is about the fear of God. We have three main candidates, who fear God? Who has lived their lives as if they fear God? Who has been kind to people? Who has the potential to be kind to people?”
