Rev. Fr. Uchechukwu Obodoechina, Administrator of St. Theresa’s Catholic Cathedral, Nsukka, has urged catholic faithful to always pray for politicians, especially the 2015 general elections.

Obodoechina, who made remark in Nsukka on Sunday during the Church service said constant prayers to God would ensure victory for only those who had the country’s interest at heart in 2015.

According to him, the best thing to do is to pray to God, the people should not sit down and be complaining all the time as this will not solve our problems.

“As we pray, we should also remember to play our part by voting candidates of our choice during the elections,” he said.

He congratulated the people of Nsukka as the Enugu State governorship had been  zoned to Nsukka District.

The cleric urged politicians from Nsukka to put their selfish interest and political differences aside so as to select  the best candidate who would take the state to enviable height.

Obodoechina said that the consensus person should be God-fearing and had good track record of excellent performance. (NAN)
