An international gospel preacher and pastor in-charge of Shalom Baptist Church of the Nigerian Baptist Convention, Ekpan, near Warri, Pastor, Opate Bright has sued for peace following the INEC postponement of the February 16 presidential and March 2 polls to Saturday February 23 and March 9, 2019.
Pastor Bright, while delivering a sermon titled “the dimensions of God’s greatness”, Sunday February 17, taken from Proverbs 3:35, charged youths to be wise, vote wisely for candidates of their choice and shun violence during and after the polls, adding that the postponement of the elections should be taken for the good of Nigeria.
He appealed to Deltans not to be engaged in fighting one another, noting that it won’t help the electioneering process.
The pastor urged eligible voters not to be discouraged but come out to vote candidates of their choice without being coerced to do so.
The cleric enjoined Deltans and politicians to preach love among themselves, pointing out that “elections will come and go but Deltans will remain as one people with one goal.
