Following reports of an alleged plan to postpone the 2023 election, an evangelist has issued a warning to the federal government.
Samson Oluwamodede predicted that if the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, attempts to postpone the upcoming general election, there will be consequences.
Oluwamodede was adamant that moving the election from its current dates would plunge the country into chaos and unrest.
According to the popular cleric and General Overseer of the Prayer Centre Church of God, PCCG, everything must be done to ensure that peace does not elude the country at this critical juncture.
“Nigeria may postpone the general election. If they postpone it, something may happen. I repeat, something unbearable may happen.
Oluwamodede in his prophecy during a church programme said, “So, we don’t want them to postpone it. We don’t war. We don’t want a crisis. We don’t want chaos. Let there be peace in Nigeria.”
In the last 24 hours, there have been speculations that the polls could be cancelled or postponed owing to the growing wave of election-related insecurity across the country.
Chairman, Board of The Electoral Institute, TEI, INEC’s training arm, Prof. Abdullahi Abdu Zuru also made the observation on Monday in Abuja at the validation of election security training resources.
The electoral body had announced February 25 and March 12, 2023, for the conduct of the presidential, national assembly and governorship elections respectively.
