The Anglican Bishop on the Niger, Right Reverend Dr Owen Nwokolo, has appealed to the state Governorship candidate for the
November election to cultivate and display in practical terms the spirit of sportsmanship in the said election.
Bishop Nwokolo explained that rather than see the exercise as a-or die affair, the candidates should instead be sports manlike in every sense and be prepared to accept with open mind the outcome of the poll.
The Bishop who made the call in Onitsha, reminded the candidates that irrespective of the number they are, only one person will ultimately emerge winner.
He, therefore, urged them to be reasonable and accommodating enough to embrace whoever that will come out a winner adding that it is God that makes one what he becomes.
The Right Reverend Dr Nwokolo further counseled the governorship candidates not to be extravagant in their electioneering so that they can, according to him, courageously bear contrary outcome of the election.
While enjoining anyone that might eventually emerge winner not to play “the winner takes it all” politics, the Bishop challenged them to remember to make good their political promises to the people of the state if elected.
On the other hand, the Bishop called on the people of the state to vote wisely and not to allow themselves to be hoodwinked by money bags and sugar-coated tongue politicians nor get hooked with their deceptive material gifts.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
