PFN Supports RCCG, Urges Churches to Create Politics Directorate

Pastor Enoch Adeboye

In the wake of speculations following the creation of the office of directorate of politics and governance by the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) has thrown its weight behind the church.

According to speculations, the decision of the church was made to support the presidential ambitions of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, who is a pastor of the church. However, the church denied this claim.

It will be recalled that the church recently released a memo addressing all provinces and regions of the creation of the office of directorate of politics and governance. The reason is to assist its members who desire to go into politics.

According to Punch, PFN supports RCCG in its decision, adding that it had urged churches to create the directorate.

The director of the PFN national directorate of politics and governance (DPG), Femi Emmanuel, said in a statement on Sunday, “This appointment of the RCCG is not in support of any political candidate at all. We asked for it. I trust other fathers and leaders of the faith would soon follow suit.”

“Let no one read any negative or ulterior motives to the memo from RCCG. This is at our request and it is an answered prayer for us in DPG. This is what we have been asking our General Overseers to do since.  Many more will do so soon as we are in consultation with them.”

The statement continued, “PFN/DPG is still at the level of building a grassroots base. We are still far from presenting candidates. Anyone talking of presenting candidates at this point does not know politics. Politics is at the grassroots. You can’t present candidates when you are not at the grassroots. You are at the back of the fence politically speaking.

“Where would you get candidates (Ward Officers) to vote for you at the primaries and party conventions? Is it angels that will vote for you?

He also urged other churches to join RCCG in the same manner. Emmanuel said, “I appeal to All our GOs especially those with national spread and others to do what RCCG just did for us and connect their appointed officers to join us in this great effort as RCCG had done. We are eagerly waiting for others to do the same.”
