Osun election: Pastor emerges Accord Party guber candidate

Church leaders are the biggest impediments to the emergence of elected Christian candidates, Secretary of Christian Elders Forum Pastor Bosun Emmanuel, has declared.
She spoke at the 2nd annual National Conference of the Advocates for Right Leadership Association (ARLA) AKA Believers in Politics (BIP) in Sagamu, Ogun State.
Delivering the keynote address with the theme Government upon His shoulder, Emmanuel said genuine Christian candidates are not in the political arena because church leaders are working against their emergence.
He explained politics would remain dirty until good Christians get in to redeem the situation.
According to him: “Believers have been saddled with the responsibility of political and spiritual dominance of their sphere of influence.
“But achieving this may prove difficult because of the self-centeredness of most church leaders who rather than work together will present individual agendas.”
Christians, he stated, need political leaders who can rally them to common fronts in the onerous task of rescuing the nation from political and economic woes.
This, he said, will not happen unfortunately until Christian leaders come together and speak with one voice on the political evolution of the nation.
