Join Politics to Reinvent Nigeria, Christians Urge | The Guardian Nigeria News
The Convenor of the Governance of Nations Conference (GTNC), Ikenna Nsofor urged Christians to get involved in governance to solve Nigeria’s economic and security problems.
Making the call yesterday at the first GTNC in Lagos, Nsofor, who is also the lead pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), The Word Church Parish, Area 11, said the vision “is to create a platform for Christians to enter into governance, especially politics, as it is a central role in the development of the nation.
He accused Christians of a paradigm shift in 2023, urging them to register and obtain their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) to effect the change.
He said: “Over the years it has become very evident that Christians have refused to accept the fact that unless they get involved in governance and leadership positions things will continue to go downhill. as we are currently experiencing in all sectors of the economy. ”
“It is wrong to say that politics is a dirty game. It is better to say that people who do politics, if they are dirty, do dirty politics.
“But if we have people with the right mindset doing politics, it won’t be dirty.” Similarly, Cedar and Coleman CEO Benjamin Dike said the reason Christians don’t do it right is because there is no conscious effort to prepare a set of people who have the right mindset and what it means to lead and govern.
He said when Christians get involved in key sectors of the economy with the aim of doing what is right, the whole nation and the world will be a better place.
Dike noted that there is an urgent need to teach and prepare great skills for Christians and good people who want to enter politics and other fields.
