Samuel Oladele, President of the Christ Apostolic Church (CAC) Worldwide, has advised Christians to vote for candidates that will protect their interests in the 2023 elections.
Mr Oladele gave the advice in his address at the 2022 Pastors Conference of the CAC held at Ayo Babalola Memorial International Miracle Camp, Ikeji-Arakeji, Osun, on Wednesday.
He said “The forthcoming general election is the one that we must be interested in, as we cannot afford to remain complacent while decisions that affect our faith are being made.
“We shall be guided by the criteria provided by the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) for the election of our next set of political leaders in Nigeria.
“I make bold to declare loud and clear that the interest of the kingdom of God and of His Christ is more important than all other interests,” he said.
He charged Christians to allow the interest of God’s kingdom to guide their consideration of who to vote for in the forthcoming general elections.
Lamenting the level of insecurity in the country, Mr Oladele urged Nigerians not to despair but be more prayerful and walk on the path of righteousness.
The cleric said there is hope for the nation, adding that “for God rules the affairs of men.”
Also speaking, General Evangelist for the Church, Hezekial Oladeji, warned church pastors against insubordination and other misconduct, vowing sanction for defaulting pastors.
