Clergies of the Methodist Church of Nigeria
Dr Samuel Uche, the Prelate of the Methodist Church of Nigeria has on behalf of his church and other patriotic Nigerians appeal to the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC not to compromise the destiny and future of Nigerians by rigging the forthcoming 2019 elections.
The Methodist prelate has therefore appealed to the commission to show courage and character in the discharge of their duties before, during and after the 2019 elections to justify the confidence the Nigerian public have in them.
The prelate has, therefore, caution that the votes of Nigerians should be allowed to count so as to have leaders elected by the will and thrust of the people.

He counsels the public to vote only those politicians who have a good conscience and the fear of God and are prepared to serve the people selflessly.
According to him, “elect only people with the passion to work. Don’t elect greedy politicians who want to rule by all means and after them, their wives and in-laws will take over.
“Any attempt to rig the election by INEC in favour of any politician shall be resisted by Nigerians and may lead to a serious crisis in the country,” He said.

“INEC must ensure that peoples’ vote count. There should be no manipulations, no vote buying, anybody who wins no matter the party should be declared the winner unless they want a crisis. We do not want a crisis. It is the height of impunity for anyone to say that I must win. Nigeria belongs to all of us.
“Christians are lovers of peace, we do not like crisis, and we maintain peace anywhere we are but Nigerians vote must count”
The Methodist Prelate stated this in Onitsha, Anambra State while leading other senior clergies of the Conference of Methodist Church of Nigeria on a sympathy visit to the flood victims of the Ogbaru circuit of the Methodist church.
