President of the Christ Apostolic Church, Pastor Samuel Oladele has itemized some of the crucial things Nigerians must take note of before voting in 2023 while also chiding the government for allowing a prolonged strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities.
Pastor Oladele made the submission on September 21 while addressing journalists at the annual pastors’ conference of the church at Ikeji Arakeji, Osun State.
The CAC president said Nigerians should not be deceived by the political class that some things don’t matter in the build-up to the 2023 elections.
He said if Nigerians must choose right they must consider several factors. He said however that God will ultimately choose for us.

Things that matter

Pastor Oladele said, “Let no man deceive you by “it doesn’t matter” syndrome. Everything which the politician says “does not matter” matters in actual fact.
“Religion matters, tribe matters, gender matters, status matters, education matters, you matter and your votes matter too.”
He added however that “these are not enough to give us good leaders. God is the one who knows the innermost intention of a man and to Him, we should look to give us leaders after His heart.”
The CAC president noted that Nigerians are once again confronted with unusual choices.
He called for earnest prayers “that God should give us men and women after his heart to lead us in the next dispensation.”

We must vote rightly

This according to him will however not happen until we vote rightly.
“We must ensure that we vote and make our votes count for real. We must demand and insist that our leaders be responsible enough to live up to their campaign promises as well as walk their talk when it comes to uprightness in governance.”
The CAC president lamented the deplorable state of the nation blaming both the government and the governed.
He asked,”what do we call the closure of our institutions of higher learning for more than seven months, leaving our youths in limbo, if not wickedness? Can we say that the parties involved are fighting a worthy cause if they are unable to proffer practicable solutions to the needless debacle?”
He also decried the shameless violation of our national values by the custodians themselves. 
“How do we describe the sabotage of social amenities by the same people for whom such amenities have been provided – like rail tracks, power lines, bridge girders, oil pipelines etc.? And what do we call the arrogance of our rulers and the shameless complicity of the ruled?” he asked.
The cleric noted that Nigeria is grappling with all kinds of crises and moral burdens because “Our humanity has been eroded.”
For Nigeria to experience the good old days, the clerics stated that Nigerians must return to the Lord.
He called on all Nigerians to be true and upright, “brighten the corner where you are, and add your small light to the millions of small lights in order to make our Nation, and indeed the world will be a better place to the glory of God,” he said.
