A former Presidential aide and author, Reno Omokri has warned the Redeemed Christian Church of God not to politically promote its member, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, who is vying for the seat of Presidency in 2023.
In a post shared online, Reno averred that promoting Osinbajo politically would be very dangerous and that the church authorities should call its political directorate to order before they start what they can't finish.
His post reads;
”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!?”
