Election Riggers Warned To Be Careful


Politicians preparing to rig the 2011 elections have been warned that they would pay  with their lives if they attempt to rig the elections.

The General Superintendent of the Christ Redemption Bible Church, Lagos, Pastor John  Ogundare said all those who would attempt to rig the election would incur God’s  wrath and that such people might die.

“God is set to take the country to a new level with the success of this election  and anyone attempting to stand in the way of God’s plan, will not go unpunished. So,  let all those who put their trust in rigging beware,” he warned.

He also appealed to Christians to play more active roles in next year’s polls so  that the needed changes could be effected in the country, while urging them to  ensure they register as voters during the registration exercise billed for next  month and ensure they vote and monitor the counting process.

Ogundare, who spoke with newsmen to herald the church’s 2010 Annual Victory at last  Congress, scheduled to hold between 13 and 18 December in Ketu, Lagos State,  southwest Nigeria, frowned at decisions by some church organisation to make voters  registration a pre condition for partaking in the Holy Communion, saying such  punitive measure was not necessary.

“We can only educate and encourage the congregation to perform their civic rights  and be part of the movement for a better Nigerian society”, he said.

He commended Prof Attahiru Jega, Chairman, Independent National Electoral  Commission, INEC, saying that Nigerians should assist the electoral umpire to  succeed by monitoring the electoral process.
