Prelate Emeritus of the Methodist Church Nigeria, Sunday Mbang, has stated the Christian group in Akwa Ibom State will not allow cultists to become the state governor or senators within the 2023 elections.
Mbang, a former President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, said this while fielding questions from journalists shortly after a COVID-19 prayer summit for Akwa Ibom National Assembly members, tagged, ‘Do you know what tomorrow will bring, what is your life (James 4:14)’ on Saturday in Uyo, the state capital.
The cleric stated God would not allow any politician who was a fetish and engaged in cultism to be elected within the state.
“I’ll like to inform Akwa Ibom people that anybody who is in a cult and who does diabolic things, the Christian community won’t allow him to become governor of this state; we will not even allow them to become senators or win any political position.
“We want people who are clear, not diabolic, not corrupt, not cultists and so on, to rule us as a result of our children, unfortunately, are in cults. We want clean people so that our children will know that since their fathers will not be there, they should not be there too,” he stated.
He explained that the prayer summit was to dedicate all the National Assembly members from the state to God against the ravaging coronavirus pandemic.
Meanwhile, the Senator representing Uyo Senatorial District, Bassey Albert, on behalf of the 10 National Assembly members from the state, praised God for sparing their lives while discharging their assignments amidst the pandemic.
He lamented that the Senate lost 5 of its members out of 109 members in the current session, while the Home of Representatives lost about 4 out of 360 members.
