The President of Christ Apostolic Church Worldwide, Pastor Abraham O. Akinosun has cautioned politicians against stockpiling arms to cause violence during 2019 general elections.



In an interview with The Guardian recently, the cleric expressed concern that politicians who would be serving humanity could be acquiring arms and training thugs to destabilise the country.



Pastor Akinosun advised politicians who lose election to accept defeat, while winners should be magnanimous in victory to move the country forward.



He also urged politicians to use their positions to provide better welfare for the people and ensure security of lives and property.


According to him, the late Abraham Lincoln lost election several times before he eventually emerged president of the United States of America.


The cleric advised the electorate to have confidence in the electoral process, shun violence and vote for candidates with the fear of God and who would deliver the dividends of democracy.He advised parents not to allow their children to be used as thugs to foment trouble during elections.
