The Redeemed Christian Church of God has flagged of a political awareness campaign tagged’ Let My People Vote’ that signaled the beginning of what many described as a revolutionary move by arguably the fastest growing church in the world.
The event held last Friday, June 15th at the RCCG Youth Centre, Lagos –Ibadan Expressway and had speakers, Apostle Alex Bamgbola, Chairman of Lagos State Christian Association of Nigeria; Pastor J.T Kalejaiye, Special Assistant to the General Overseer on Evangelism; Pastor Idowu Iluyomade, Special Assistant to the General Overseer on Christian Social Responsibility; Pastor Bosun Emmanuel, represented the National Christian Elders Forum, while Region 2 Regional Evangelist, Pastor Ilesanmi, represented the National Overseer, Pastor J. O. Obayemi.
The consensus amongst all the speakers was that Christians should play very active role in the process that would lead to a new political dispensation in 2019.
The conference ended with participants having great expectations and eagerly awaiting the role they would play in midwifing the birth of New Nigeria.
Speaking on the event, Pastor Ola Adejubee, the Assistant Pastor in Charge of RCCG Region 1 who is also the coordinator of this initiative, said the whole thing was the vision of the General Overseer, Pastor E.A Adeboye, during the annual ministers thanksgiving in January 2018.
According to him during his introductory message, he narrated that Pastor Adeboye jolted the ministers when he instructed them to go and collect their PVCs. If the statement came as a surprise to the ministers, he said that they were mostly dumbfounded when in August last year, during the RCCG annual ministers conference, Adeboye had asked them to go and join any political party of their choice.
This time, it was with an emotional laden voice’, he disclosed.
