The Speaker, Ogun State House of Assembly, Rt Hon. Olakunle Oluomo has said the most important action expected of the body of Christ in their calls for God to “Arise for Nigeria” is for them to join politics and contribute their quota.
He urged them to disregard all the rumours that politicians must have godfather and join cultism, saying that It’s all lies.
Olumo submitted that he has no godfather in politics, saying that Jesus Christ is his father and doesn’t belong to any cults.
Oluomo disclosed this at the 2023 DPG Annual Covention organised by Directorate of Politics and Governance, Region 32 Headquarters, Celebration House Adigbe ,Abeokuta in commemoration of the 63rd Nigeria’s Independence
The Speaker admonished the congregation to be praying for their leaders instead of abusing or cursing them according to 2 Timothy 2:1-4 as there’s authority in their tongues.
He said “It’s unfortunate that Christians want to go to heaven but don’t want to die, same way, they want good governance without willing to participate in politics.
‘As the theme of this Convention, have we rise for God firstly before God will arise got us?
“You must be the change you want. Stop saying politics is dirty, remember it takes positive and negative to produce light.
“Don’t believe all the rumours out there; that you must have godfather and join cultism. It’s all lies. I don’t have godfather in politics. Jesus Christ is my father. And I don’t belong to any cults.
“I am here today to encourage you. Challenges may come your way in politics, but if you have God, you shall overcome them. In all the elections I have contested, It has been God who helped me all through
“If not God, I would have fallen long time ago. Till date, I can’t remember a Sunday that I have not attended church.
“I beg you, stop abusing or cursing politicians, rather be praying for them, and join politics, Oluomo admonished.
Earlier, pastors who spoke have assured the gathering that “when God arises in Nigeria, he will makes way, heal the land, bring about positive Divine turn around, and the suffering will be over.
They emphasised the need for the congregation to participate in politics as it’s a ministry by which the presence of God can be manifested.
“This calll is important as many occupying political offices today in Nigeria are not representing the interest of God.
“This ministry is not dictating the political party you should join, but whichever party you belong, make sure you display good character and be the light.
“Don’t let’s leave governance to those who don’t know God”, the pastors counseled.
