Predictive political slants threat to nation’s peace, security – Runsewe

Segun Runsewe Segun Runsewe

Otunba Segun Runsewe, the Director-General, National Council for Arts and Culture, has lamented that the current predictive political slants across Nigeria’s diverse religious and cultural ecosystem threaten the nation’s peace and security.

He, however, expressed concerns over what he described as strange political predictions and hyped religious ventilation across the country.

The Director-General, in a statement, appealed for religious tolerance all over the country.

He lamented that it is becoming evident that prediction, and not prophecy, is the new game in town.

He explained that from football to cricket, wrestling, dancing competitions and lately, politics, some Nigerians who claimed to hear from God, now oxygenate, escalate and poison the socioeconomic and political space with laughable and troubling positions, not minding the negative impact of such predictive actions on the emotional intelligence of the people.
