The Senior Pastor, God’s Kingdom Christian Centre, Mr John Kome, has urged politicians to bequeath righteousness and politics without violence to the younger generation.
Kome, also an African Democratic Congress (ADC) House of Assembly candidate for Ikeja Constituency, made the appeal at news conference on Sunday in Lagos.
“If blood shedding and bloodletting are what our older politicians are bequeathing to our younger generation, then the future of our youths is bleak,’’ the ADC candidate said.
Kome also called on security agencies to help checkmate the wave of political killings in some parts of the country.
The ADC candidate promised to promote righteous laws and people-friendly policies, if elected.
“I will make sure I stand by righteous policies and laws, I am going to stand against anything that will stand against the people I am representing.
“If there is any law inhibiting the growth, development and well-being of the people that I am representing, I will stand against it.
“I am going to represent Nigerians, not just the Christians but also the Muslims alike,” he said.
The cleric said he was in politics to secure a better platform to touch people’s lives.
“When our youths are jobless there will be increase in crimes, what the youths need is an entrepreneurial mindset.
“What the youths needs is to graduate and not look for white collar jobs,’’ the cleric said.
