Nigerians must reject corrupt politicians in 2015, says Anglican bishop

From Nigeria-

Nigerians must take  their destinies in their hands and reject candidates without credible pedigrees at the 2015 general polls, the Bishop of Lagos West Diocese of the Anglican Communion, the Rt. Rev. James Odedeji, said yesterday.

He asked Nigerians to “shine their eyes” and make quality decisions that will deliver the dividends of democracy to them.

Odedeji spoke while delivering his state of the nation address at the official opening of the 3rd session of the 5th Synod at Archbishop Vinning Memorial Church Cathedral in Ikeja.

The synod attracted delegates from the diocese, including Bishops and lay members.

The deputy governor of Lagos State, Mrs. Adejoke Orelope-Adefulire, was also in attendance.
Odedeji, who spoke on “We Will Serve the Lord”, said Christians must take more than passing interests in 2015 general elections, but “also shine our eyes to ensure that only credible candidates are elected into office”.
