ABEOKUTA — The  Chairman and Spiritual Father of the Cherubim and Seraphim Movement Church Worldwide (Ayo Ni O), Most Rev. Samuel Abidoye has advised  former President Olusegun  Obasanjo and President Goodluck Jonathan, to demonstrate maturity in their handling of political differences between them.

The cleric in  his New Year message  to the members of the CSMC Worldwide made available to newsmen, in Abeokuta, yesterday, also warned the Federal Government to avoid  grandstanding about fighting corruption this year
Apparently referring to the recent spat between former President Obasanjo and President Jonathan, he cautioned that the nation’s leaders should avoid “dancing naked in the market place.

“He stressed that it was needless for the nation’s leaders to wash their dirty linen in public because of some differences between them.
“In terms of governance in general, there needs to be a display of more maturity by our leaders, both in and out of government. Dancing naked in the market place just to prove what one can do so is going too far.

“A leader is expected to exhibit decorum and behave with certain dignity that will make people to respect them,” the cleric said.
