The founder of Living Faith Church Worldwide (Winners), Bishop David Oyedepo, has told Nigerians the kind of presidential candidate to vote for in the forthcoming 2023 general elections.
Oyedepo urged Nigerians to analyse every contestant’s antecedents and service record critically before voting to ensure they enthrone credible leadership.
The clergyman made the call on Thursday while speaking at a three-day fasting and prayer programme for a hitch-free general election in the country.
Oyedepo, also the chancellor of the Covenant University, Ota, urged Nigerians to scrutinise the character and capacity of those seeking their votes before making decisions.
“The presidential election is just a few days away. We are believing God for a hitch-free exercise. We should all do our parts to ensure a credible exercise,” he said.
The Winners’ spiritual head explained that every political party or tribe in the country has people with the requisite qualifications to lead the nation.
“There is also no political party or tribe in the country without incompetent and character-deficient individuals. No tribe is indecent. We only have indecent people in every tribe, religion, and political party,” Oyedepo explained.
He urged Nigerians, irrespective of tribe or religion, to defend the nation’s democracy, unity and national integrity.
“It is our collective duty to secure the future of our children and the posterity of our great nation. Democracy provides us an open access for any candidate notwithstanding their political party, tribe or religion,” Oyedepo added.
