Politics can’t stop me from shunning church services, Obi replies Okowa

Politics can’t stop me from shunning church services, Obi replies Okowa

The presidential candidate of Labour Party (LP) Peter Obi has described as uncharitable reports credited to Delta Governor Ifeanyi Okowa accusing him of dragging the Church into politics on the sole reason that he attends Church programmes.

Obi, who spoke through his Special Adviser on Media, Mr. Valentine Obienyem in a statement on Friday, said it was on record that Obi attended programmes he was invited to, including those organized by the Churches.

He said: “Should Obi start shunning Church events because of politics, even when we know that since leaving office in 2014, that Obi has visited over 1000 schools and hospitals owned by the Churches, offering them all manner of support for the upgrade of their schools and hospitals that serve the citizens of Nigeria.”

 

Obienyem cautioned against bringing the name of the Church into disrepute, warning that those doing such were those linking genuine actions of patriots to politics, even when it was absolutely unnecessary.
