The Catholic Bishop of Nsukka Diocese, Godfrey Onah has urged Nigerians to cast their votes for candidates of their choice on March 9.

Onah made the call while giving the homily at Saint Theresa’s Catholic Cathedral, Nsukka.

He said Nigerians should perform their civic responsibility of electing their leaders before they could criticise the poor performance of any elected leader.

The clergyman also urged returning officers not to allow themselves to be used by politicians to upturn the electoral wishes of the people.

The Bishop said for the country’s fight against corruption to yield the desired results and move the nation forward, it must be total and no persons or group should be treated as sacred cows.

Onah, however, said that some politicians who were crying that the February 23rd election was rigged, was because it did not go in their favour.
