The Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Abeokuta, Rev. Peter Odetoyinbo, has charged Nigerians to exercise their civic right to vote for credible leaders in the 2023 general election.
Odetoyinbo gave the charge on Thursday while speaking with newsmen during the celebration of the 25th Anniversary of the Catholic Diocese of Abeokuta, held at Saint Peter and Paul Catholic Cathedral, Itesi, Adatan, Abeokuta.
He prayed for a peaceful election that would transform the country into a better position.
His words, “We pray that the state of the country should be better. Electing the right person to the right position will make Nigeria better.
“I encourage our members to go out and exercise their civic duties and vote rightly according to their conscience for good leaders who will lead Nigeria better and give us what we desire and do the will of God.”
Delivering the message, the Bishop of the Diocese, Most Rev. Jude Arogundade, lamented the diversion of the believers from a healthy Christian life to pursue riches and prosperity.
Arogundade also attributed the current gridlock in the country to bad leadership, advising citizens to revive the dying nation by electing (people with) truth and integrity.
