He warned that doing do might further impoverished the people.
The clergy used the occasion to advisec the government to invest more in sporting activities for the sake of Nigerian youths.
“Through sports millions of teeming unemployed youths could be meaningfully engage. And some of the direct effect of this is that, crimes will reduce to the barest minimum, the economy will be boosted, and through that government can generate more revenue”.
The cleric who lamented that some politicians are fond of not delivering their electioneering promises to the people who elected them into office said good ones will replace them if electorate vote with their conscience.

“Since I arrived my community few days ago, I have been going around even to schools to see what they have done here, but I couldn’t identify any tangible thing that anybody can use to campaign.
“But is our people that I will like to admonished just like I said in Lagos a week ago, that they should vote for their conscience and not for a person who will only give them food for just one day but will make them go hungry for four years.
