A former General Evangelist of the Christ Apostolic Church , Prophet Kayode Abiara , has urged Nigerians to see the postponement of the presidential and National Assembly polls as a divine intervention .
Abiara appealed to Nigerians not to blame the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission , Prof. Mahmood Yakubu , for the postponement but to see it as an act of God to make Nigeria a better country.
The cleric said this while reacting to the postponement of the elections on Saturday .
He said , “Nigerians must thank God almighty for this situation because God owns Nigeria and God is aware of the cancellation of these elections.
“ It so sad many people travelled from different parts of Nigeria to cast their votes in their various states and they will be disappointed by the postponement .
But Nigerians must appreciate God for averting a series of devilish ploys concerning these elections by the postponement
“ The chairman of INEC is not God , he needs to apologise to Nigerians.
We Nigerians should also not blame him because it is God ’ s intervention . ”
Abiara urged Nigerians not to shun the elections due to the postponement while pleading with them to troop out to vote their leaders on February 23.
