Gov poll: Apostle Suleiman speaks on preferred candidadte
The Senior Pastor of the Omega Fire Ministry, Apostle Johnson Suleiman, has spoken on his choice of candidate for the governoship poll on March 18, saying it’s his right to have a preferred candidadte.
Suleiman wondered why it is an issue for a pastor to have a preference for particular candidadte.
The cleric, backed the Lagos State Labour Party, governoship candidate, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, in statement via his verified Twitter handle on Friday.
Suleman explained that his family members in Lagos were asking for his opinion about whom they should vote for in the state governorship election on March 18.
“There is something I don’t get..when things are bad in the nation, they call out pastors for being quiet.
“When pastors speak, they say why are they being factional.
“I want to ask an honest question, as a pastor can’t I have a preferred candidate for me and my family?
“I am asking because my family members in Lagos are asking me who they should vote for, if I say they should all vote @GRVlagos, people will say I have started again, that as a pastor I should support everyone.
So I won’t say anything,” he twitted.
