2023 Elections: No Man Can Play The Role Of God- Asoju Odo Tells Christians

By Adedayo Said

The YPP House of Reps Candidate for the Irepodun/Isin/Ekiti/Oke-Ero Federal Constituency Charles Olufemi Folayan has declared that no man can influence the outcome of the 2023 general elections against the will of God.

Speaking as a special guest in Ilorin at a programme organized by Catholic Social Forum CSF of the Catholic Laity Council of Nigeria held at the St. Joseph’s Catholic Cathedral Ilorin on the 1st of October, 2022. Asoju Odo who promised to provide fair representation for all tribes and religions in his constituency, urged Christians to be objective and support people with knowledge, skills and good character against people with questionable characters who only surfaced to get political powers. 

Quoting from Deuteronomy 1:13-15 “Choose wise, understanding, and knowledgeable men from among your tribes, and I will make them heads over you.’ And you answered me and said,

“The thing which you have told us to do is good.’ 

“So I took the heads of your tribes, wise and knowledgeable men, and made them heads over you, leaders of thousands, leaders of hundreds, leaders of fifties, leaders of tens, and officers for your tribes. 

Charles Folayan affirmed that his confidence is in God because no leader can emerge except from God. Quoting from Romans 13:1-7 “Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. 

He said, “Some candidates are being sponsored by former Governors and Governors with no record of good governance. You can’t expect them to represent the people’s interests but that of their godfathers. I’m the candidate of the people, I have no godfather but I have the God the father, the Son and the Holy Spirit with me, he makes decisions that nobody can upturn. 

He urged the congregation to keep their faith, participate fully in politics, ensure that they vote on the day of the election and leave the rest for God. He said, no man can play the role of God in the coming 2023 general elections.
