Social media commentator and lawyer, Reno Omokri has reacted to alleged reports that the Redeemed Christian Church of God is politically campaigning for its member, Vice President Yemi Osibanjo, who is vying for presidency in 2023.
Taking to his social media page on Monday, May 2, Reno stated that it’s very dangerous for the church to politically promote Osinbajo.
According to him, electoral candidates can visit the church’s General Overseer for prayers, but openly campaigning for them is out rightly wrong because the church is meant to promote Christ.
“It is very dangerous for the Redeemed Christian Church of God to politically promote Osinbajo. Churches are meant to promote Christ. If churches and mosques start promoting candidates, then they are no longer religious organisations and should start paying tax!?
It is alright for the candidates to visit the church and Pastor Adeboye for prayers and his blessings. But when the Redeemed Christian Church of God sets up a politics directorate, and the head of that unit starts openly campaigning for Osinbajo, in his official capacity then things are falling apart!
?How would Pastor Adeboye and members of the Redeemed Christian Church of God feel if the Sarkin Musulumi, Sultan Sa’ad Abubakar, asks Muslims to queue up behind Bola Tinubu because he is a Muslim? GO Adeboye should call RCCG’s political directorate to order before they start what they can’t finish!?”
