The Bishop of Ogoja Catholic Church Diocese of Cross River State, Dr. Donatus Etim has called on Nigerians to come out to vote, protect their votes and choose their leaders wisely.

In a video obtained by CrossRiverWatch, the Bishop urged Nigerians to rise up and reclaim the country through their votes.

He said, “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 goodwill in Nigeria to stand up, walk into the society and the various aspects of governance and lives in Nigeria, and embrace our mission and destiny for a better Nigeria.

“We should not allow ourselves to be led sheepishly, by some selfish, bigoted, corrupt religious and political leaders who will ignore our wishes and impose injustice and perpetuation of corruption.

“While we are preparing for the election, let us all rise, register to vote, come out to vote, protect our votes, choose our leaders. These able men are now busy meeting and they are already planning which Barabbas, a corrupt thief like themselves, to impose on us through INEC, Pilate.

“We must resist this, we want an honest  hardworking Nigerian who has shown the capacity for governance and transparency, irrespective of where he is coming from, and support him to lead us.”

He went on to say, “We reject Barabbas, we choose Jesus, we reject corrupt leaders, we choose honest men and women. This is the time whether they’re caucuses or whether they are stakeholders,  we know they’re corrupt selfish evil men, most of them.

“If you say you are not one of them and you find yourself there to be 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, he needs us to go into the settings, he needs us to go into the streets, he needs us to transform our lives,” he said.
