2023 presidency: RCCG told to stop promoting Osinbajo

Reno Omokri, a socio-political activist, has urged the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, to focus on teaching Christ rather than promoting Vice President Yemi Osinbajo ahead of the 2023 general elections.

Omokri made the appeal in response to statements made by the RCCG’s Head of Politics and Governance, Pastor Timothy Olaniyan, who argued that the Vice President was still the greatest contender to replace President Muhammadu Buhari.

According to reports, prior to Osinbajo’s decision to run for President of Nigeria in 2023, the RCCG established a Politics Directorate across the country to promote members running for electoral offices.

The church, according to Omokri, can pray for the VP but not campaign for him.

He said, “‪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!
