The General Supervisor of ThankGod Awaited Liberation Ministry, Ikeja, Lagos, Prophet Francis Onwudiwe Otukwu, has warned Nigerians not to be carried away by the self-serving political theatrics of the two leading political parties – the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) – who are heating up the polity with current defections and leadership tussle at the National Assembly, while playing down on increasing rate of poverty, serious security threats posed by the Boko Haram terrorists and rampaging Fulani herdsmen that kill and render farmers homeless.

“Three years on, the government is still contending with Boko Haram terrorists aided by saboteurs, thousands of Middle-belt and Southern Kaduna families are languishing in internally displaced persons’ camps (IDPs), while the Fulani herdsmen who sacked them occupy their ancestral lands, leaving them homeless and hopeless, as neither the Police nor the military have been able to protect the citizens nor arrest their tormentors. On the other hand, the economy has not been fixed, leaving millions of Nigerians in excruciating poverty, while politicians are already warming up for the 2019 general elections.”

Prophet Francis Otukwu stated this during the ministry’s 12th Anniversary Thanksgiving/Founder’s Birthday commemoration on Sunday, with the theme: “Jesus Christ the Life-giving Water”, featuring liberation messages that make ThankGod Awaited unique, music ministration by Kingdom Voices and guest artiste, Arinze Okoye of the Arizona Praise Band International.

He equally berated the opposition PDP members in the National Assembly that has the statutory authority to confirm the appointment of ministers and security chiefs as well as oversight functions over ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs) for not doing much to task the executive, which has failed in its constitutional responsibility to secure the lives and improve the life of Nigerians.

“The current gale of defections by top politicians of both the APC and PDP confirm they are not concerned about the unity or survival of Nigeria or how to improve the lot of the common man. Rather, they are unequivocal about the root of their dispute: Which party wins and who presides over the political economy, automatic ticket for legislators at the National Assembly, and distribution of political offices and patronage after the 2019 general elections. They are not concerned about ensuring a credible, peaceful and un-manipulated poll next year, hence no efforts at cooperating with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), at the grassroots level nationwide, to mobilise the electorates for a successful nationwide registration of voters and efficient collection of permanent voters cards, with a view to guaranteeing accuracy of registration records, unhindered collection of PVCs and a free and fair election.”
