The founder of christian central chapel International, Bishop Emmah Gospel Isong has called on christians to participate fully in the process of electing a credible candidate with the fear of God if we must get things right and for a better and a prosperous Nigeria.
Bishop Isong who is also the national publicity secretary of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, (PFN) made the call recently in calabar in his kenote address during a town hall encounter with Gubernatorial candidates for the 2023 election in cross River State
He called on the church to have a say and let their presence and contributions in the electoral process be felt so that they can have a stake in the governance maintaining that as people of faith, christians should harmonize, synergies and synchronize adding that they should be proactive in the process.
He said it is wrong for people to be anointing candidates years before elections are conducted simply because of small favour that may attract, not considering the interest of other people and the nation at large.
The clergyman urged religious and spiritual leaders to come up with a yardstick and standardized the rules of engagement in politics if government fails to do well, while appealing to cross Riverians not to cause any distraction during the election because this could be detrimental to the development of the State.
