prepare for the 2023 elections

Bishop Godfrey Onah asks Nigerians to prepare for the 2023 elections by resisting efforts to impose corrupt men to rule Nigeria.


While preparing for election, let us all rise, register to vote, come out to vote, and protect our vote. We should choose our leaders. These evil men are now busy meeting. They are already planning which Barabbas, a corrupt thief like themselves, to impose on us through INEC (as Pilate). We must resist them.

Jesus courageously and happily went into Jerusalem to embrace his mission and his destiny, because the hour had come. Now the hour has come for all Christians and all persons of good will in Nigeria to stand up. Walk into the society and the various aspects of governance and life in Nigeria. And embrace our mission and our destiny for a better Nigeria.

We should not allow ourselves to be led sheepishly by some selfish, bigoted, corrupt religious and political leaders. They will ignore our wish and impose on us injustice and perpetration of corruption.

While preparing for election, let us all rise, register to vote, come out to vote, and protect our vote. We should choose our leaders. These evil men are now busy meeting. They are already planning which Barabbas, a corrupt thief like themselves, to impose on us through INEC (as Pilate). We must resist them.

We want an honest, hardworking Nigerian who has shown capacity for governance and transparence, irrespective of where he is coming from and support him to lead us. We reject Barabbas. We choose Jesus. We reject corrupt leaders. We choose honest men and women. This is the time.

Whether they are caucuses or whether they are stakeholders, we know that they are corrupt, selfish, evil men, most of them. If you (the politician) say you’re not one of them and you find yourself there, be the Joseph of Arimathea, and speak out.

Nigerians have suffered enough. We have suffered enough. And the time for real change is now. Our destiny is in our hands and nobody can claim or pretend not to be concerned. God is still with us and he needs us to go into the city. He needs us to go into the streets. He needs us to transform our lives.

His Lordship Godfrey Igwebuike Onah is the Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Nsukka, Enugu State, Nigeria.
