The National Coordinator of the Christian Political Leaders Forum, Honourable Emeke Egwuanimkwu, has urged Christians to engage in partisan politics, saying politics had never been a dirty game as being speculated.
Honourable Egwuanimkwu, who was on tour of the 25 local government areas of Delta State, made this known when he visited the Christian Political Leaders Forum (CPLF), Ika North East Chapter
Honourable Egwuanimkwu, who is also a Senior Special Adviser to Governor Okowa, noted that the saying that politics was a dirty game was not true and a plot to prevent Christians from involving themselves in politics, adding that “We must show interest and be actively involved in the system that will affect all us.”
“Fasting and praying for thing to change have not yielded much results that is the reason we should participate and be fully involved. We can only make inputs and contributions when we are in the system,” he noted.
Speaking further, he said “the essence of this visit is also to join hands with INEC and the Party (PDP) Committee on continuous Voters Registration in sensitizing/mobilizing the general public, especially Church members who are yet to register to do so without further delay.”
Honourable Egwuanimkwu also charged the CPLF executives to take it as their duty to educate Christians on the need to come out for the exercise and participate actively in civil politics.
“Without the voters card, we cannot make any impact. As Christians, we must strive to fulfill the scriptures by working towards the development and growth of our dear nation,” he stated.
While enjoining Christians in the state to continue to pray for the governor of state to finish well and strong, he called for unity of purpose among in Christendom.
