A group, All Christian Leaders/Ministers Forum, has urged Christians in Lagos State to participate in elective politics to ensure that the state is developed in a godly way and reach an enviable height in the country.
National President of ACLMF, Mr. Sam Ogedengbe, said this at a banquet and annual thanksgiving service of the group on Saturday in Lagos.
Ogedengbe, who is also the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Christian Matters, said although Muslims, such as Governor Babatunde Fashola performed well as governors of the state, Christians must also gear up to run the state in 2015.
He said ACLMF would continue to awaken the political consciousness of Christians to participate in party politics and exercise their civic responsibility to change Nigeria for good.
Ogedemgbe said, “Christians must emerge governor of Lagos State in 2015. As a Christian group, we will pray that a Christian should be in position of authority, particularly in governance and all other places in the country.”
The guest speaker, Rev. Nick Medo-Uwa, implored Christians to always utilise the concept, “prayer with action”.
He said if all Christians could come together, a God-fearing leader would emerge to handle governance in the country.
