The District Superintendent, Christ Apostolic Church, Ori Oke-Aanu Prophet Isaiah Olaoluwatoyi Alade has urged all Christians to get their voters' cards and also join political parties of their choice.



Pastor Alade disclosed this recently in an interview with Nigerian Tribune.



He also noted that people shouldn’t vote based on items distributed during campaigns, as the phrase in some states now is ‘e dibo k’e se’be (vote so that you can make soup),' noting that people should vote based on how they feel a candidate can bring about true development.



According to him, as prophets, they can’t come out to support a particular candidate, nor can we be candidates of a political party, but we can pray and support the people.


"God has told me a lot of things about Nigeria. However, what we need to know in Nigeria is that our sins are affecting us. We cannot continue to shift blame and complain every time. We should all ask God for forgiveness of our sins and return to Him truthfully," he said.
