The General Overseer of Deeper Life Bible Church,Pastor Williams Kumuyi, has directed all members to get their voter cards to vote for a credible government in 2015 elections.
He reiterated the need for people to shun religion and ethnic sentiment in choosing leaders in the elections.
Kumuyi spoke on Wednesday in Ado-Ekiti while declaring open a three-day revival, in Ekiti State, in an event organised by Pastor Debo Taiwo.
He said, “I declare that all members of deeper life should go and get their voter cards so that we will vote for a credible government. Whoever is voted, if he is not doing the right thing, then we will have the right to complain.
“If we must vote for the right kind of people, we must exercise our right to vote.
He advised Nigerians to look at the past record of politicians and the manifesto of their parties in choosing their leaders in 2015.
“We should not vote for people because we are from the same area or of the same church. People should vote based on the credentials of the leaders. We have to look at the records of those that are contesting for us to elect credible leaders that will bring development.
“It won’t be wise for people to start voting for somebody because he is from your area or is a member of your church. This is the more reason why people should speak through the ballot by participating actively in the electoral system.”
He also appealed to politicians to learn to accept defeat in elections while urging winners to be magnanimous.
