Abuja-Prince Uche Secondus, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Deputy National Chairman, on Thursday urged politicians to play politics without bitterness, as the nation goes to polls March 28 and April 11.
Secondus made the call in Abuja, at the PDP national Christian praise rally for Successful 2015 Elections.
He said playing politics without bitterness was critical to ensuring peace in the country after the elections.
Secondus called on politicians to be God-fearing in all their endeavours.
“It is what you ask God with conviction that you will receive. As the nation cries to God to bring peace to the country with conviction, He will manifest himself,’’ Secondus said.
Quoting from the Scriptures, he said that: “by strength shall no man prevail”, adding that it was God that gives power to whoever he wishes.
The PDP chieftain expressed gratitude to God for keeping the nation united in spite of the challenges it was facing.
In his sermon at the rally, Bishop John Obazz, President, Nigeria Prayer Network, prayed for peace in the country before, during and after the elections.
He also prayed God to avert all forms of violence that might have been planned by any person or group of persons.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the rally with the team: “Let God Raise’’ was organised by the PDP National Chapel in collaboration with the National Prayer Taskforce, a non-governmental oranisation.
According to the organisers, the rally was meant to commit the nation into God’s hand and to pray for successful elections.
The PDP National Chapel is no denominational. It was initiated in 2012. (NAN)
