Apostle Johnson Suleman, has advised Nigerian politicians to “go home”, instead of going to the court, when they lose an election.
“Politics is a game, when you lose don’t go to court, go home,” Mr Suleman, the founder, and pastor of the Omega Fire Ministries said.
He made the remark while preaching on Sunday in his church in Auchi, Edo State.
“Don’t go to court, go home. It is not your father’s property. If you don’t win today, you may win tomorrow,” he said.
The cleric, who said it was only God who knew who would be Nigeria’s president, advised Christians to do away with hatred that was borne out of politics.
“Many of you now in church, different parties, you are now enemies because of political party. Not knowing that the players are friends, they will phone themselves and say, ‘What you did was wrong”.
And the other one would say, ‘Don’t worry, don’t worry, we will talk about it. We will meet in the mosque’.
“And you are there killing yourself!
“It’s a game. Don’t die. Don’t kill yourself.
“What this country needs is peace! Don’t abuse yourselves, let there be peace,” he said.
