Respect yourself, go home and do not contest 2019 election - Anglican bishop tells Buhari

Respect yourself, go home and do not contest 2019 election -  Anglican bishop tells Buhari

The Bishop of the Diocese of Ondo,
Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) Stephen Oni, has said the nation
needed a young and visionary person to become the next President of the
country and urged President Muhammadu Buhari to drop his re-election bid
in 2019.

The  Anglican bishop begs Buhari to go home adding that he is too old for the sit and has caused too  much pains for Nigerians. we should sincere to ourselves, the only medecine Nigerians needs now is to vote in a young leader that have bigger plans for the nation he added.

He lamented that some politicians in
Nigeria had overstayed their time in office and refused to leave the
political offices for the younger generation, identifying the trend as
one of the problems the country was facing.

Bishop Oni stated this at the order of
service for the investiture and installation of a new chancellor and
other officials of the Cathedral Church of St Stephen, Oke-Aluko, Ondo,
Ondo State.

 At the ceremony, a Federal High Court
judge, Justice Obayomi Taiwo, was invested as the Chancellor; Mr Ayodele
Akintunde (SAN), as the Deputy Chancellor; while Mrs Yejide Ogundipe
and Mr  Olu Adenodi were reappointed as registrar and deputy registrar

In his charge, titled, ‘Responsibility,
not title,’ the cleric lamented the recycling of old politicians in
power at all levels of government in the country, saying politicians go
to any length to perpetuate themselves in power.

He said, “They want to die in office. No
wonder, people have thrown caution into the air, we could see impunity
everywhere. Worthy legacy is not there, we are only recycling rust
brains, they will come back again with their pictures when they give you
N1,000 with the popular chant to ‘vote and cook soup’. “

“I don’t expect any 75 to 80 years old
still in government, what are they doing there? When will they give
their children a place? The age of youthfulness is between 25, 30 and
40; who will want to employ in a bank a 75-year-old man?

“Are we now saying a 75-year-old should
go to the National Assembly, what are they doing there? We need young
people who have aspirations and highly adventurous. So, let them allow
them in.”

On President Buhari intention to contest
next year’s election, he said, “He has his right to contest but my
advice for him, if he will do it well, he should go home joyfully.”
