The Pastor in-charge of Shalom Baptist Church of the Nigerian Baptist Convention, Ekpan, near Warri, Pst. Opate Bright, has sued for peace following the postponement of the Presidential/National Assembly elections by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, from the 16th of February to Saturday, February 23 and that of the Governorship/House of Assembly elections from March 2 to March 9, 2019.
Pst. Bright while delivering a sermon titled “the Dimensions of God’s Greatness”, Sunday February 17, cited Proverbs 3:35, as he charged youths to be wiser, vote wisely for candidates of their choice and shun violence during and after the polls, adding that the postponement of the elections should be taken for the good of Nigeria.
He appealed to Deltans not to be engaged in fighting one another, noting that it won’t help the electioneering process.
Pst. Bright urged eligible voters not to be discouraged and come out to vote candidates of their choice without been coerced to do so.
The cleric enjoined Deltans and politicians to preach love among themselves, pointing out that “elections will come and go but Deltans will remain as one people with one goal.”
