2023: It is very dangerous for RCCG to politically promote Osinbajo – Reno Omokri

Former Presidential spokesperson, Reno Omokri has slammed the Redeemed Christian Church of God for politically campaigning for its member, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo ahead of the 2023 election.

On Monday, May2, social media commentator, queried RCCG for allegedly promoting Osinbajo. According to him, the church is meant to only promote Christ and not political aspirants on any rank or position.

He appealed to Pastor Adeboye the General Overseer of the Redeem church to call his political directorate to order.

He wrote,

“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!?”
