Why Churches shouldn’t abandon politicians when they’re no longer in office – Wike

FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike, has urged churches not to abandon politicians when they leave office.

Wike stated this on Sunday, in Port Harcourt at St Mark’s Anglican Church for the birthday celebration of the House of Representatives Minority Leader, Kingsley Ogundu Chinda.

He stated that while in office, politicians often contribute to churches but are neglected when their tenure ends.

The minister also charged the clergy to practice what they preach, urging that they should always pray for the political class.

His words: “The church should also remain steadfast; the church should also not abandon people when they’re no longer in office. When most of us were in office, there was no church we weren’t contributing to. But immediately we left office, it was a different story.

“You, as agents of God, must show that you’re practicing what you preach. It’s not only politicians. Always be there for us; pray for us; don’t change.”

Also speaking at the event, the Speaker of the House, Tajudeen Abass, hailed Chinda’s contributions to the lower chamber, describing him as one of the best products in the National Assembly.

“Hon Kingsley Chinda remains one of the best products in the National Assembly, and ever since he stepped into the NASS, he has been giving Rivers State very good representation,” the Speaker said.
