The Vision Pioneer, Throneroom Trust Ministry and Co-Chair, House of Kaduna Family, Apostle Emmanuel Nuhu Kure, has called on both Christians and Muslims in the state to vote for unity in the Saturday’s gubernatorial election.
Kure, a former National Secretary of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) and Chairman, Southern Kaduna Christian Leaders Association (SKCLA) in a statement titled: “Passionate Appeal For Saturday Elections In Kaduna State, ” said the last eight years was engulfed with crisis and division urging the people to vote for unity.
“I passionately and desperately appeal to all citizens of Kaduna State as we approach the elections on Saturday to vote against that wall that has sowed enmity, distrust, fear, and very unhealthy and bloody rivalry between the northern and southern Kaduna, separated people of faith even from within the same religions.
“The last eight years has caused so much pain and confusion for most of the state and even more for one part. Unfortunately the secret campaigns to the elections still carry the same messages of fear, lies, seeds of division, blackmails, inducements and strange promises of all sorts.
“I plead with my Muslim and Christian brothers, let’s vote with one voice to break that WALL and bring back the God of Love to the state, ” Kure said.
According to him, “The last eight years has sown so much hatred even among people of the same religion that I fear that another four or eight of that will be the end of the state. And will impact greatly on or shake up this country, taking past precedence into account.
“Both religions have prayed and fasted for a better future, let us please with one voice vote together to remove that past on Saturday.Let’s start a healing season and process.
“Let’s not play politics of sentiments this Saturday, let’s vote for unity, survival, and justice for all as our Holy Books command and our religions advocate. That is if we still believe in God and the Holy Books. God will hold us religious leaders accountable for destroying this nation.
“We have not seen unity in the last eight years. Let’s bring back God’s love to Kaduna State. Let Kaduna State become the epic reference center of the north again. Is this -God’s Will- too much to ask the people of the books? Let’s vote for a government that will break this wall. Again with a broken heart and cry to God, I appeal to you, let’s bring a government that will bring down this wall.
“Whoever wins by God’s grace must bring down this wall, heal wounds and restore confidence among all in the state. May God bear witness this day that somebody spoke out for God and for all religious leaders who still fear God by the Holy Books. And for the many blood of the innocent that Kaduna State has swallowed or may continue to swallow if we make a mistake on Saturday, ” he said.
