A former General Evangelist of the Christ Apostolic Church, Prophet Kayode Abiara, has urged Nigerians to see the postponement of the presidential and National Assembly polls as a divine intervention.
Abiara appealed to Nigerians not to blame the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, for the postponement but to see it as an act of God to make Nigeria a better country.
The cleric said this while reacting to the postponement of the elections on Saturday.
He said, “Nigerians must thank God almighty for this situation because God owns Nigeria and God is aware of the cancellation of these elections.
“It so sad many people travelled from different parts of Nigeria to cast their votes in their various states and they will be disappointed by the postponement. But Nigerians must appreciate God for averting a series of devilish ploys concerning these elections by the postponement
“The chairman of INEC is not God, he needs to apologise to Nigerians. We Nigerians should also not blame him because it is God’s intervention.”
Abiara urged Nigerians not to shun the elections due to the postponement while pleading with them to troop out to vote their leaders on February 23.
