Voting for Bad Candidate, Recipe for Disaster -Bishop Ezeokafor

By Mmaduabuchi Onwumelu

The Catholic bishop of Awka Diocese, His Lordship Most Rev. Paulinus Ezeokafor, has urged the Anambra electorate to shun sentiments and do the right thing by voting for a good candidate who is not only capable but will take the state higher in the next four years.

Speaking at St. Patrick’s Catholic Cathedral, Awka in the wake of heated political atmosphere, Bishop Ezeokafor expressed concern over what he described as unbelievable desperation of some politicians in Anambra State.

He noted that there were those who did not have any business contesting the election, but were there just to play spoiler’s role, as well as to cause confusion and division in the political process.

He appealed to Ndi Anambra to vote according to their conscience, noting that any bad government enthroned during the November 6 gubernatorial election would hurt the people of the state for the next four years.

‘Collecting money to vote a bad candidate is a recipe for disaster and anarchy. Do not mortgage your future by voting in the wrong person. Vote because you love Anambra State. Vote someone who is capable,’ he pleaded.
