Ogun PDP chieftain, Showunmi says Buhari must be firm, courageous over 2023 polls

Otunba Segun Showunmi

A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ogun State, Otunba Segun Showunmi has gone spiritual over the forthcoming 2023 polls asking the almighty God to grant President Muammadu Buhari the courage to be firm and allow only the wish of Nigerians to prevail.

In a statement made available to journalists on Wednesday to welcome Nigerians into the month of February, Otunba Showunmi prayed to God to allow Nigerians to wake up and see democracy as an opportunity to make good choice of leaders that will add good values to their lives and children and also impact even the unborn generation.

The PDP chieftain equally prayed for peaceful poll while asking God to deal decisively with those that may attempt to disrupt the elections.

Quoting from Isaiah 9 vs 6, Showunmi said "for unto us, a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. 

"Oh, you whom the government shall be on his shoulder, yea the selfsame Holy Spirit now let your ministry come into full and mighty effect in our country Nigeria, grant our president the courage to spare no one and no effort at giving the country a great chance to choose its lead according to your will in peace, grant the president the peace of mind to be firm and do right by the country. 

"Give the citizens the good sense to know that the opportunity of democracy is for them to choose their leaders, it requires them to be responsible and diligent in doing what is best for themselves, their children and unborn generations. 

"Father let your peace envelope the nation of Nigeria and arrest all who conspire to disrupt the order of things. Keep your watch over all officials of the state who will be playing one role or another in the conduct of elections. 

"Above all chose for us God for by our strength we can by no means prevail. Welcome to the much anticipated February 2023. Presidential Election is in 25 days,  let every adult of voting age go out and do their civic responsibilities, in an orderly manner devoid of violence".
