General Evangelist of the Christ Apostolic Church (CAC), Samuel Abiara, has said that the postponement of the 2019 general elections was divine intervention.
In his sermon on Sunday, Abiara absolved the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, of any blame, saying it was God’s way of averting ‘devilish plots’.
After calling on Nigerians not to be deterred from voting, he added that the INEC chairman was not God and Nigerians should take the situation as an act of God.
He said, “Nigerians must thank God Almighty for this situation because God owns Nigeria and God is aware of the cancellation of these elections.
“It is so sad many people travelled from different parts of Nigeria to cast their votes in their various states and they will be disappointed by the postponement.
“But Nigerians must appreciate God for averting a series of devilish plots concerning these elections by the postponement.
“The chairman of INEC is not God, he needs to apologise to Nigerians. We Nigerians should also not blame him because it is God’s intervention.”
