Politicians preparing to rig Nigeria’s 2023 elections have received a warning from John Cardinal Onaiyekan.
According to him, “the election will no longer be business as usual” given the people’s contemporary aspirations.
Onaiyekan gave a speech on Saturday at Maitama’s Holy Trinity Church in Abuja.
The nation’s capital’s Catholic Archbishop Emeritus celebrated his 40th year as a Bishop.
There May Be No Nigeria Before 2023 Elections – Cardinal Onaiyekan
When they weren’t elected, Onaiyekan advised lawmakers to “desist from any type of manipulation to their favor.”
The religious figurehead commanded people with plans to “play games and plots” to give them up.
“They should allow this election to run in a free and fair way”, said the ex-Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) leader.
Onaiyekan stated that he does not support any one candidate and merely wants the will of the electorate to be honored.
He claimed that Nigerians are not currently in a state of mind where they would “quietly accept a rigged election.”
“There will be serious repercussions if anybody doesn’t allow free and fair elections,” Onaiyekan warned.
