The Prelate Emeritus, Methodist Church of Nigeria, His Eminence Dr. Sunday Ola Makinde, says Christians can no longer distance themselves from politics if the country must have a positive change of fortune.
He said it was high time Christians got involved in politics and help make Nigeria truly better.
Failure of Christians to participate in politics, Makinde warned, would continue to make them victims of irresponsible governance, which they would have no control over.
The cleric argued that “it is not a sin for Christians to take active part in politics.”
Makinde said this on Monday in his sermon at the 65th birthday celebration of the Prelate, Methodist Church of Nigeria, His Eminence Dr. Samuel Kanu Uche.
The event held at the Methodist Cathedral of Peace and Excellence, Opebi, Ikeja, Lagos.
