Pastor David Ibiyeomie of Salvation Ministries has advised Nigerians not to vote because of political parties but because of candidates.
This is as he urged Nigerians to avoid collecting money to cast votes as it’s tantamount to selling one’s conscience.
The clergyman said this while addressing his members at the church’s headquarters in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
According to Ibiyeomie: “If you take money to vote, then you have sold your conscience. When we are shouting, you people will say I don’t shout. I am shouting now. Don’t collect bribes to vote, vote for your conscience.
“Don’t vote party again in Nigeria; vote for someone who has a vision. Nigeria is in the woods; she needs someone who has a vision.
“No politician should be voted; vote for a statesman instead. A statesman thinks of the next generation, a politician thinks only of the 2023 general elections.”
