The founder and general overseer of the Omega Fire Ministry International, Apostle Johnson Suleman, has warned his congregants against casting their votes for someone “who will cut their neck”.
In a video making the rounds on social media, Suleman said God told him that it was better to vote for someone who will steal the money than for someone who will cut their necks.
Although the cleric did not mention names, the battle of who rules Nigeria in the next fours years is between President Muhammadu Buhari of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, and Alhaji Atiku Abubakar of the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Apostle Suleman, who was addressing members of his church, pointed out that there may not better options for Nigerians to choose from, but, according to him, a thief was better than a killer.
He said, “Even if you are deaf, can’t you see? Let anybody be angry, I’ll say what I want to say.
“Never vote for anybody that will cut off your neck. I said so. Put it on internet; take it everywhere.
“Listen, we may not have a better option; We may not have a better whatever.
“But, a man that will steal your money is better than the one that will take your life. I have spoken. The Lord told me to speak this morning.”
He confirms that Atiku is a THIEF, asks Nigerians to vote for a THIEF…Then intelligently does "damage control" to such a travesty with another travesty by falsely tagging Buhari as one who will cut your neck. pic.twitter.com/nipcDnKWj6
