He said “Concerning the coming elections, we (Nigerians) can say that only credible candidates show up for the election. The political power is in the hands of the people. It is for the people to vote for credible people who can rule the country well and not those with selfish motives.
“I urge Nigerians to vote for the right people. I believe that when we are able to vote for the right and proper people, we will together lift up the country.”
On the issue of insecurity, Pastor Kumuyi said Nigeria will overcome the present challenges, saying there was no country in the world is without challenges. He however assured Nigerians that with unity of purpose and prayer, all the present challenges befalling the country will be a thing of the past.
He said “Obviously, Nigeria as a country has challenges. Some might call them problems, but I prefer to call them challenges. And we as a nation should not give up in looking unto God. I believe that God will help to solve those challenges even in our own time.
“What I can say is that God is on the throne. I believe that before long, we would more security, peace and prosperity in the country more than we have seen before.”
On a final note, the cleric urged the people of Bayelsa to continue to live in peace and eschew violence.
He said “What I will say to the people of Bayelsa is that they should let peace reign. Live and let others live. If we understand that without other people, our lives cannot be complete.”
