Pastor Jeff Okoroafor, Head Minister, Jesus Fellowship, Civic Center Lekki, says Charles Soludo’s victory at the Anambra governorship election has vindicated the Federal Government and put critics of alleged rigging plans to shame.
Okoroafor in a statement in Lagos on Thursday said the outcome has exposed those who gave false prophecies on who would emerge as governor and made strong allegations that the Buhari-led government planned to rig the election in favour of the APC.
The cleric told those who gave false prophecies to apologise to Nigerians.
”But the outcome of Anambra election has shown that those peddling those rumours were enemies of Nigeria.
“President Muhammadu Buhari’s neutrality is highly commendable because we have witnessed elections years ago, where the president in power at the time used INEC to ensure massive riggings nationwide in favour of his party.
” We all have a future to build and it can’t be built on falsehood. We must learn to refrain from information that will lead to disunity, chaos and hatred,” he said.
Okoroafor went ahead to appeal to religious leaders to avoid predictions during elections as that was not part of their calling.
He noted that there was nothing wrong in praying for any candidate that sought prayers but the result of an election should be left to God and INEC to decide.
“God has spoken in the Anambra election. The people have chosen. Those who gave false prophecies should apologise to Nigerians,” he said.
He added that aside welfare of the people, what was most important in Anambra now is security which the governor-elect must prioritise.
