Pastor Tunde Benjamins-Laniyi, the Resident Pastor, Throne Room Parish of RCCG, congratulated the people of Jamaica on their 60th Independence anniversary, even as he called on Nigerian leaders to take a cue from the Jamaican government.
The cleric further called on Nigerians to reject the old order and go the way of the Lord come 2023 general election.
He admonished Nigerians to ensure they get their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) and ensure they don’t waste their votes in the forthcoming presidential election.
