The Redeemed Christian Church of God has thrown lights into its establishment of politics directorate in the church.
RCCG’s creation of the unit set tongues wagging that it came into being to promote the purported presidential ambition of one of its pastors, Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo (SAN).
Reacting to the rumour in an interview with Punch, the Head of Media and Public Relations in the church, Pastor Olaitan Olubiyi said, it was put in place to create political awareness among members.
Quoting the publication: “According to him, the politics directorate of the church was created to sensitise members of the church for active political participation including getting their Permanent Voter Cards ahead of the 2023 general elections.
“Olubiyi also said RCCG has been creating political awareness for its members since the transition from military to civil rule in 1999 and there was nothing new about the development.”
