Former president Olusegun Obasanjo has enjoined Christians to participate actively in politics or risk having those he described as ‘evil ones’ running the affairs of the country.
Speaking on Sunday in Abeokuta, Ogun State, Mr. Obasanjo warned Christians against being indifferent towards politics as it would not augur well for the country.
The former president made this known during the fifth anniversary thanksgiving service of the Chapel of Christ the Glorious King, a religious arm of the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, Abeokuta.
While thanking God for the existence of the chapel of which he is the Chief Promoter, Obasanjo said, “I want to say here that Christians should participate in politics. We should not leave politics in the hands of the evil ones who cannot offer this country any good”.
Earlier in his sermon delivered on the occasion, the former president of the Nigerian Baptist Convention, Reverend Ola Akande, described the former president as a rare and special gift to Nigeria.
The cleric noted that the likes of Obasanjo usually came once in a generation.
