The Continental Overseer for Africa 3 and the Middle East of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Johnson Odesola, urged Nigerians to vote for politicians with integrity in the upcoming elections.

According to a statement on Thursday, Odesola made the appeal while addressing journalists in Lagos on the state of the nation and lamenting the growing insecurity in the country.

He said: “If there was an election, Nigerians should vote with their consciences. They must consider the integrity and transparency of those who will serve the interests of Nigerians.

“Nigeria has reached the state and level where no one has a solution to the myriad of problems facing this nation today. Politicians who claim to have solutions are succumbing to the deception. The economy has gone into a tailspin. Political promises should not be trusted.”

The cleric also pleaded with the government to do more to combat insecurity and make Nigerians and foreigners, particularly investors, feel safe.

Odesola also condemned the attacks on the facilities of the Independent National Electoral Commission in some parts of the country, adding that it portends a grave danger that could threaten the 2023 elections.
