Badejo, in a New Year’s message titled ‘There is no place for prophets of doom’, said:
New Year: Let’s do more to change Nigeria for the better, says Laolu Akande
“So, secure your PVC and vote your own election. We must produce leaders with integrity and a good record, who do not follow the logic of the survival of the fittest, but the survival of the weakest, therefore, a nation where truth and justice reign.”
Avoid the prophets of doom, urges a Catholic priest
The Catholic priest added that Nigerians should avoid “prophets of doom.”
“I urge Nigerians to avoid the prophets of doom who, in this day and age, annually present hackneyed visions and messages of doom. It is better to listen more to Jesus who says: “Do not be afraid, I am with you”, “I am the way, the truth and the life”, he said.
He cited Ghana, where the government has issued an arrest warrant for false prophets, noting that Nigerians can also borrow a blade.
“What good are prophetic statements that ultimately don’t bring people closer to God?” Bajedo asked.
