Gospel artiste, others sensitise voters


A gospel actor, Mr Kolade Segun-Okeowo and some clerics have urged Christian voters to get their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs), register and vote responsible leaders who will engender good governance and improve their living standards.

Speaking on the theme, ‘Nigeria: We won’t give up on you’, Segun-Okeowo, who is the convener of the programme, said Nigeria would be a country to reckon with if religious leaders participated fully in the country’s election processes.

He said, “This programme is to educate Christian voters on matters arising in the political corridors of this country.  We are also using it to create awareness for Christians to come out and take up active roles in governance.

 “We need to change our apathy to voting by registering and participating in voting.”

Also, the Chairman, Board of Trustees, Mr John Babafemi, advocates for Right Leadership.

He called on Christians in various quarters to take up political roles.

“We need responsible leadership to make a great nation because responsible leadership cannot be removed from good governance,” Babafemi added.

The guest speaker, Mr Bosun Emmanuel said Christians have abandoned leadership roles for too long.

They stated this on Saturday at the second annual national conference of Believers in Politics, to educate voters with a view to stemming apathy in the country.
