Prince Adewole Adebayo, the presidential candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) has advised christians to call out injustice and corruption as a way to make the society better.
He made this known on Sunday December 25 when speaking during the Christmas concert oganised by Apostolic Faith Church Ondo State, at his residence.
Prince Adebayo said when public offices steal funds, the church should not encourage them by keeping silent but condemn it, as that is the only way God will have mercy upon Nigeria.
“My only advice to the church is, when they see people in public offices who have stolen fund, they shouldn’t say God has blessed you. When someone does injustice in politics, the church should cry out and say this is injustice.
If the church does this, God will have mercy upon Nigeria and truth and justice will come”, he said.
The SDP presidential candidate, while commending what the church is doing in the state, said he will provide more infrastructure in the state.
The most important thing is power is useless. Purpose is more important. And everything that is kept in your hand is a trust from God. Even our own life is a trust.
It doesn’t belong to you. If you live for 50 years and 100years it’s not because you have the best doctor. Is because God has a mission for you, He wants you to fulfill. I talk to my friends running for office. Those of yesterday have gone.
The most important thing is, when you are here, make mark. We are here just like a shadow. Then we should do our best.
“We’ll do all the roads, as for the lights we have enough lights, the 615 solar lights we earlier commissioned is just one third, more will come. There’s no part of Ondo you will go and there will be no light”.
For her part, wife of the SDP presidential candidate, Queen Lilian Adebayo thanked everyone for gracing the event, while expressing hope that with God’s help and the vote of the people of the state, Prince Adebayo will emerge a winner at the polls.
She said, “It is a great privilege having the church here, I want to thank you all, especially for the playlet by the children which inspires me, it shows that man has no power, it is God who will do the choosing for us even for the position my husband is aspiring for.
I know people will have to go out to vote but I know that God will do it”.
The highlight of the event was when gifts were presented to Prince Adebayo by different persons, and also the exchange of gifts between himself and little Ondo children.
Members of his entourage were – Chief Silas Alani, SDP southwest chairman, Mr Patrick Anethua SDP member Edo north, Godwin Osigbeme, Ambassador Rufus Aiyenugba SDP National Publicity Secretary.
