The Prelate of the Methodist Church, Samuel Kanu-Uche, has advised politicians in the country to learn from the fall of former Zimbabwean President, Robbert Mugabe of Zimbabwe and other sit-tight leaders.
The cleric further advised politicians who think they could rig themselves into elected positions to know that Nigerians are now wiser.
The Prelate decried a situation where some elected politicians earn as much as N13.5 million as a monthly allowance, while the masses are suffering.
Uche-Kanu gave the advice at a news conference on Monday after what he called an “Apostolic Tour” of the Church’s Archdioceses in the FCT, as well as Minna and Lokoja.
He said, “Our leaders should learn from the fall of Sadam Hussein, Gadaffi, Idi Amin and Robert Mugabe.
“Our politicians are not learning. They should not think they are powerful. Power belongs to God. If they think they are powerful, God has a way of dealing with them.
“The people you call herdsmen now were not the ones we knew when we were younger in the 60s.
“Herdsmen live in our villages, they used their staff and control thousands of cattle and we relate well with them, there was no shooting, but now they use gun.
“I understand that the guns are issued to them by politicians.
“God did not make a mistake in bringing us together.
“We want a united country, where there is peace, harmony, justice, equity and rule of law.
“We do not want a religious country. We should co-habit and co-exist in love.”
