Politics Not For The Ungodly– Olusegun Obasanjo

<p/>Former Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo yesterday, in Abeokuta, condemned politicians who have no fear of God, saying politics is not for the ungodly.

Obasanjo implored those who are God-fearing to go into politics in order to correct the wrongs, asserting that it was fallacy in some quarters that good Christians should not be in politics.

Giving the admonition at a special thanksgiving to mark the fifth anniversary of the Chapel of Christ the Glorious King (CCGC), the religious sector of the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL), Abeokuta, Ogun State, he appreciated the preacher, Rev. S.T Ola Akande for his sojourn in politics, saying: “One of the beliefs in the so-called Christian quarters is that good Christian should not be in politics but it is a fallacy.“

"If we allow this to be, we shall be having ungodly people and this should not be, because if you leave politics without participating in it, bad people will join and will dominate it. We must encourage good Christians, those God have accepted to be in politics, or else what we would be witnessing will not be good."

Obasanjo recalled that “One of the early things I learnt in politics is that it requires money. Not money for bribing. But it is what is called genuine administration. Some of the people who will come will need money for transportation.“

"When they came to me, I told them that I do not have money. But, they said if I have had money, may be they would not even have come and meet me. I soon realisedhow I will raise money for transportation, so, I started visiting people in the morning and evening and that was how we made it."

”In his sermon, Ola Akande said he has been “a spectator of the many ups and downs of the life of Chief Olusegun Obasanjo across the years”, noting that even as a senior, he came to know a miracle about him and it was that this is a special man that God has given to the current and contemporary Nigerian generation.“

You all know that God has granted him many victories in life. So, the building of such a chapel by him is indeed an expression of praise and thanksgiving to Christ the Glorious King. So, to you, Chief Obasanjo, I say ‘well done! May God continue to grant you more of His grace in Jesus name.”

The cleric condemned the current political situation ahead of the 2015 general elections, observing that “their preparations, defections andcounter defections from one party to another are robbing us of our sleep.“

"We wish you all success in your search for ARGURION, theGreekword for money. I expect that, from now on, many hungry men and women will be trailing you in hope of being fed with your ‘votes for me gift’, after which you will abandon them and start to be taking care of yourselves alone with your constituency allowances,” the cleric said.

IT'S VERY MUCH ADVISABLE TO TAKE A GOD LOOK AT ONESELF THROUGH THE MIRROR FIRST BEFORE MAKING ANY STATEMENT. PARTICULARLY SUCH STATEMENT.
