Bishop Martins Ezeuku of Minna Catholic Diocese, has said that Americans voted Republican candidate, Donald Trump, as President-elect, because of his strong stance against abortion.
“Trump’s victory is a victory for humanity; Americans have made a statement – they do not like abortion and will not support whoever supports it,” Ezeukue told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), on Wednesday in Minna
NAN reports that Trump, a strong anti-abortion activist, floored his Democrats rival, Hilary Clinton, who is pro-choice.
“Abortion is a criminal offence; it involves killng of human beings and stopping them from coming into the world we are in,” he said.
The Bishop said that Americans voted someone that would not allow the killing of unborn Americans in the name of abortion.
He advised the President-elect to carry everyone along, irrespective of race, religion and ethnic differences so as to make for an even greater America.
Ezeuku also advised Tump to work toward uniting the world toward peace, prosperity and greatness, while striving to give hope to the hopeless.
Also reacting to Trump’s electoral success, Prof. Shehu Riskua, former Vice Chancellor, Uthmad Danfodio University, Sokoto, advised blacks resident in the US to conduct themselves properly so as not to clash with the authorities there.
Risqua advised Trump to carry everyone along towards a better world.
