William Kumuyi, Founder and General Superintendent of Deeper Christian Life Ministry, says political leaders must ensure that their decisions are representative of the desires of all Nigerians.
Mr Kumuyi gave the advice while addressing reporters in Ilorin on Wednesday, shortly after paying a courtesy call on Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq of Kwara.
According to him, our political leaders must consult and conduct research before reaching a conclusion, in particular on the presentation of either a Muslim-Muslim ticket or a Christian-Christian ticket for the presidential election of 2023.
Mr Kumuyi said presidential flag bearers from various political parties should look at the heartbeat of the country and people’s desires before making their decisions.
“The Muslim-Muslim or Christian-Christian ticket is a difficult and slippery area.
“So what I will say is that politicians should look at the heartbeat of the country as well as the desires of the people.

“Politicians need to know that they are not there for themselves. They are there for all of us. They should ask and do their research on what the country wants.
“They should ask and do their research on what the country wants, what the people want; if they listen to people, we will be sure they will listen to us when they arrive,” he said.
Regarding the prevailing security challenges in the country, the cleric commended the security officers for doing their best.
He said security guards were doing their best, adding there was still room for improvement.
“In all areas of life, I would say there is room for improvement.
“I want to pay tribute to the officers who put their lives on the line to secure the whole country.
“We should pray for them that God will give them more wisdom and a visible victory over Nigeria’s security.
“I will pray for everyone at the end of each ministry for their desires, aspirations and blessings.
“God is our Creator, whether we are Muslims or Christians or whatever religion you belong to, we are creatures of God. God is interested in blessing everyone. I am here to be a blessing to everyone.
“There will be an empowerment program for all young people across religious divides as it is meant to redirect young people’s attention to positive future endeavours,” Mr. Kumuyi said.
