Anglican bishop tasks Nigerians on general elections

From Nigeria-

Ahead of next month’s general elections, the Bishop of Diocese of Lagos West, Anglican Communion, Rt Revd. Dr. James Olusola Odedeji has called on  Nigerians to beware of who they vote for, stating that the outcome of the election will determine how things are going to be in the country for the  next four years.

Odedeji, who made the call yesterday while delivering a sermon at the 70th birthday celebration of Mr. Joseph Abiodun Falode at St. Peter’s Anglican Church Idimu, Lagos, also urged Christians to get involved in the politics of the country.

However, he said clerics must remain apolitical.

According to him, the more Christians shy away from politics, the more they put the country at the risk of being run by unscrupulous elements in the society.
