ORDAINED BY GOD! Please stop voting for anointed politicians, man warns Nigerians

Published




A Nigerian man, simply identified as Perez, has warned Nigerians against voting for politicians who claim they are ordained by God or are anointed.

He said Nigeria has to go beyond prophecies in order to build the Nigeria of our dream. Perez said a typical politician knows that Nigerians are obsessed with God, therefore the easiest way to buy their votes is to say that they are ordained by God.

Perez also opined that as an individual your conversation with God should be private and not printed on political posters as campaign strategies to canvass for political appointments.

In a lengthy Instagram post, the apparently concerned Nigerian analysed the effect of “the God factor” and “political prophecies” that politicians use to brainwash Nigerians into believing them.

He wrote,

“Here’s another politician claiming God has ordained him. Nigerians, please, stop voting for God anointed politicians.

“Ordained by God” or, “God told me to contest for the Presidency” should not be a substitute for the hard work of getting governmental positions.

“We have to go beyond “prophecies” in order to build the Nigeria of our dream. The God factor is a big reason why Nigeria remain a developing country. A typical politician knows Nigerians are obsessed with God, and the easiest way to trick them to vote for you is by telling them “God told me to contest”. If Nigerians continue to vote for anyhow people just because they mention God or Allah, we will forever remain underdeveloped.

“A Democratic system of government allows you to cross-examine politicians before voting, but democracy cannot work without informed citizens, and that is why we are where we are in Nigeria, If you want me to vote for you, you have to convince me you cannot tell me, “God told you X or Y” and expect me not to question you.

“Your conversation with God should remain private. Don’t come out and tell Nigerians, what they have no way of verifying. It’s between you and God.

“In Nigeria, political prophecies have overshadowed our standard political policies that we have to wait for prophecies to shape each year for us and leave a lot unfinished.

“The “God” issue has always been my problem with a lot of Nigerians. When they introduce ‘God’ into an intellectual discussion, you know you are about to be ripped off or limited to digging deeper which would reveal their lack of physical depth.

“If I want to run for a political office, my posters will be everywhere with a clear-cut plan of what I will do, if I get elected.

“I will never put a “Ordained by God” poster online or on the streets or even, tell anyone, “God told me to contest” We need to stop this God told me this, God told me that and focus on competencies and capabilities. “
