Deeper Life founder cautions politicians ahead of 2015 elections

Kumuyi expressed his displeasure in situations where office seekers resort to violence whenever they lose elections

General Superintendent of Deeper Christian Life Ministry, William Kumuyi, has urged politicians to always respect the people’s wish once election has been concluded.

Addressing journalists at Deeper Life Camp, Ado-Ekiti, at a three-day revival, Kumuyi expressed his displeasure in situations where office seekers resort to violence whenever they lose elections.

At the event anchored by a pastor, Debo Taiwo, the man of God warned Nigerians against voting along ethnic and religious lines in 2015.

Kumuyi, who said the measure remains the best way to elect credible leaders for Nigeria to have a sigh of relief, advised his members to collect their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) for them to participate actively in electing leaders that would shape their collective destiny.

“Nigerians must be careful in electing their leaders in 2015. We must not vote based on ethnic or religious sentiment.

“People should vote based on the credentials of the leaders. We have to look at the records of those that are contesting for us to elect credible leaders that will bring development.

“It won’t be wise for people to start voting for somebody because he is from your area or is a member of your church. This is the more reason why people should speak through the ballot by participating actively in the electoral system”.
