Bishop (Dr.) Olufemi Otusanya (Omomajemi), the Prophet of the Most High God & General Overseer of True Covenant Church of God (TCCG) has asked Nigerians to vote for the right candidate in the 2019 elections.
Otusanya stated this during the Church dedication of Alapere-Ketu Branch of TCCG and Fund Raising for Musical Instrument which took place recently.
While advising Nigerians on the upcoming general election in 2019, the young bishop said “Nigerians should pray very well. If we did any mistake now, it is going to be a problem, because the outcome of this election is going to be the defining moment, Nigerians depend on this election so much in order to move forward or move backward.
“I am telling you the truth. We should not make mistake in choosing. Again Nigerians should pray very hard because there is going to be some bloodshed, we should pray against that. Third we should try and choose right,” Otusanya said.
On his choice of presidential candidate in the 2019 presidential election he said “I will just tell Nigerians, if we are thieves, we should vote for a thief, but if we are not thieves we should vote for somebody that is fighting against corruption.”
On his take on the anti-corruption fight by the present administration he said “Though some people complain that they are not satisfied, I agree with that, but all is politics. I also believe if the man comes back the second time he will change the system.”
Speaking on his vision for Alapere branch, he said, “Alapere is going to have another branch that is bigger than this particular branch. I see that in two years’ time, it will get bigger because people want us in Alapere. God is going to use us mightily in Alapere.”
Otusanya has advice for the youths “Our youths must be calm, we should be prayerful; they should believe more in God because it is only God that can do it. And I believe Nigeria will be better by the special grace of God. I always think about the youth because government has not done much for the youth.”
On empowerment, he said his church has empowerment programmes under the Bishop Omomajemu Foundation. “I want to empower many women, the youth, many less-privileged, we are going to start this month, so I want to do more.”
Otusanya spoke further “The youth is the future, but I don’t see that future yet, because the people in government continue to recycle themselves, the government should please pave way for the youths in their administration so that the youth can prepare for the future. When it comes to religious matter as leaders of tomorrow, God has used some of us, so tomorrow is going to be okay when it comes to religious matter in Nigeria.”
