Don’t Drag Churches Into Politics, Okowa Berates Obi

The vice presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party and Governor of Delta State, Ifeanyi Okowa, has berated the outings to churches by the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi.

According to him, churches should not be dragged into politics because that is not their calling.

Okowa said this while addressing a group of supporters in Kano.

“Now you begin to look at what is going on; the Peter Obi factor is as if he is trying to go through the church and make it look as if he is driving the Christians into politics. I do not believe that the church should actively go into politics because that is not their calling.

“But people are just hanging to anything they can reach out to even to the detriment of their fate. I don’t believe that’s the right part to go,” he said.
