2019 Election: Buhari Should Not Contest – Says Anglican bishop
Comments Off on 2019 Election: Buhari Should Not Contest – Says Anglican bishop | | September 17, 2018 1:06 PM
The Bishop of the Diocese of Ondo, Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) Stephen Oni, has revealed that the nation needs a young and visionary person to become the next President of the country and urged President Muhammadu Buhari to drop his re-election bid in 2019.

He lamented that some politicians in Nigeria had overstayed their time in office and refused to leave the political offices for the younger generation, identifying the trend as one of the problems the country was facing.

Bishop Oni stated this at the order of service for the investiture and installation of a new chancellor and other officials of the Cathedral Church of St Stephen, Oke-Aluko, Ondo, Ondo State.

At the ceremony, a Federal High Court judge, Justice Obayomi Taiwo, was invested as the Chancellor; Mr Ayodele Akintunde (SAN), as the Deputy Chancellor; while Mrs Yejide Ogundipe and Mr  Olu Adenodi were reappointed as registrar and deputy registrar respectively.

In his charge, titled, ‘Responsibility, not title,’ the cleric lamented the recycling of old politicians in power at all levels of government in the country, saying politicians go to any length to perpetuate themselves in power.

He said, “They want to die in office. No wonder, people have thrown caution into the air, we could see impunity everywhere. Worthy legacy is not there, we are only recycling rust brains, they will come back again with their pictures when they give you N1,000 with the popular chant to ‘vote and cook soup’”.

“I don’t expect any 75 to 80 years old still in government, what are they doing there? When will they give their children a place? The age of youthfulness is between 25, 30 and 40; who will want to employ in a bank a 75-year-old man?

“Are we now saying a 75-year-old should go to the National Assembly, what are they doing there? We need young people who have aspirations and highly adventurous. So, let them allow them in”.

On President Buhari intention to contest next year’s election, he said, “He has his right to contest but my advice for him, if he will do it well, he should go home joyfully”.
