Nigeria’s growing religious assault on Christianity: “Join political parties …”, Redeemed Church’s Head urges millions of followers

January 9, 2017

Faith, Nigeria

The new general overseer (worldwide) of the Redeemed Christian Church of God Enoch Adeboye has called on members of his church to become active politically

He also said the church plans to become more influential at every political level.

“Some people believe that RCCG is becoming too influential and we’re going to be more influential. When you get home, tell members to join a political party,” Adeboye said.

The worldwide general overseer further encouraged members to join political parties to influence decisions especially at the ward level in preparation for the 2019 general elections.

“Join a party and become a card-carrying member of any party. Just join any party. We shall decide issues right from the ward level,” he said.

“If you are not active at ward level, you’ll do what they plan and say at the top. Enroll in any party of your choice and have a card. When holding meetings at ward level to choose delegates, be there.”
