The Spiritual Director of Cananland Adoration Counselling Centre (aka E-Dey Work), Rev Fr Magnus Ebere has called on the federal government to sack the Chairman of Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Professor Mahmood Yakubu if Nigeria must remain as a peaceful country.
Fr Magnus Ebere who made the call in his sermon said that the way and manner Prof Yakubu handled the Presidential election may likely disrupt the existing fragile peace in the country.
He said if the development is not properly handled, it may lead to the emergence or springing up of many nations.
According to Fr Ebere, “I foresee many nations emerging from this country if things continue the way they are going on now. The best thing to do is to remove the INEC Chairman Yakubu, cancel the Presidential election and conduct a fresh one with another person to supervise it”.
The Catholic priest who is popularly known as Fr E-Dey Work appealed to Nigerians particularly the youths who trooped out en masse to exercise their franchise not to be discouraged at the outcome of the voting exercise last two Saturdays.
He pointed out that things will surely work out for the good of the people and nation.
He advised Nigerians who want a better country to ensure that they come out and vote massively for the candidates of their choice who will help in producing a better Nigeria.
Fr Ebere said that it is not over until it is over and appealed for calm.
The Catholic priest reminded Nigerians that President Muhamadu Buhari promised that he will give the nation the most peaceful, internationally accepted elections this year and urged Nigerians to wait for the President to fulfill his promises.
Fr Ebere however said that what happened last two Saturdays fell short of national and international expectations as it was a charade and shamefully disappointing exercise.
He observed that this is first time in the history of elections in Nigeria where results were announced and everywhere seemed to be a graveyard even the birds of the air, trees, animals and human beings went cold as if they were mourning
