The Redeemed Christian Church of God has denied that it’s newly created directorate of politics and good governance was aimed at promoting the Vice President Yemi Osinbajo’s presidential ambition in 2023.

Head of Media and Public Relations of RCCG, Pastor Olaitan Olubiyi, said, the directorate was created to sensitize members of the Church worldwide to actively participate in politics, which includes
getting their Permanent Voter Cards ahead of the 2023 general election.

The said,RCCG has been into political awareness campaign for it’s members since 1999 when democracy was restored in Nigeria, hence, the creation of politics and good governance as an arm wasn’t anything new.

Olubiyi said Christians cannot be so ignorant to keep off politics even as the choice of political leadership affects the entire wellbeing of any people.

The RCCG further encouraged other Christians to emulate it’s activities and keep sensitizing themselves on what politics is all about and get involved in politics.

In a memo addressed to all regions, provinces, zones and other levels of the church, the mission said the directorate was created for political education of its members.

The memo dated February 28, 2022, and titled, ‘Office of Directorate of Politics and Governance’ has the reference number: RCCG/AGO/ADM/AA/MEMO/20/01/2022.

It was signed by the Assistant General Overseer in charge of Administration and Personnel, Pastor John Odesola.

The memo partly read, “We write to formally notify you that the mission authority has created the Office of Directorate of Politics and Governance in the RCCG. Further to this, Pastor Timothy Olaniyan (PICP Lagos Province 12) has been appointed to lead the Office.

“You are kindly requested to appoint with immediate effect a Provincial Officer for your province and also ensure that the same is done at all levels of the church – zone, area and parish. The essence of this directorate is to help coordinate the engagement of our people who are willing to be involved in politics as well as mobilize support for them when required.”
