Trying to go through the church is not the right path- Governor Okowa tells Peter Obi

Trying to go through the church is not the right path- Governor Okowa tells Peter Obi (Updated: 1 month ago)


Ahead of the 2023 presidential election, the Vice-Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, has accused the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, of attempting to gather votes by whipping up sentiments through the church.

 

Obi has made several visits to churches where he was warmly received.

 

In an interview with DailyTrust in Kano state, Okowa who is the governor of Delta state, said the church should not be dragged into politics.

 

Responding to a question on the allegation by some that his emergence as vice presidential candidate of the PDP was a betrayal to the south, especially with Obi’s increasing popularity in the zone, Okowa said it was unfortunate that people hang on to anything even to the detriment of their fate.

 

“Now you begin to look at what is going on; the Peter Obi factor is as if he is trying to go through the church and make it look as if he is driving the Christians into politics. I do not believe that the church should actively go into politics because that is not their calling.

But people are just hanging to anything they can reach out to even to the detriment of their fate. I don’t believe that’s the right part to go” he said
