2019 elections: Cardinal Onaiyekan tells Christians what to do

The Catholic Archbishop of Abuja, John Cardinal Onaiyekan, has given Christians a task ahead of the 2019 general elections.

The cleric called on Christians all over the country to pray for peace, free and fair polls in 2019.

He made the call on Saturday in his homily at the stage two of the new Cathedral building of the Twelve Apostles, St. Pope Johnpaul II (Papal Ground) Karsana District, Kubwa Expressway, Abuja.

The Cardinal pointed out that there was the need for peace in Nigeria, before, during and after 2019 general elections.

“Let us keep praying for an end to the killings, violence being perpetrated with deadly weapons, or cold indifference,” he said.

“May our homes, our nation, and countries around the world become havens of peace; let us pray to the Lord.

“Let us pray for the grace to see every human being as a child of God, regardless of race, language or culture.

“Let us pray to the Lord for the strength to teach our children how to resolve differences non-violently and respectfully, and the courage to model it in our own behavior, let us pray to the Lord.”
