The Special Adviser to the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christan Church of God on Evangalism, Pastor Johnson Kalejaiye, has called on Christian faithfuls to actively get themselves involved in politics, stating that it will enable them influence government policies positively.
Pastor Kalejaiye stated this during the Hour of Refreshing Moment, at Victory House, The Redeemed Christan Church of God, Province 2, 24 road, Festac Town, Lagos.
He noted that “as Christians, we are free to join politics, we can be the ‘game changer’ using God’s commandment”.
The Pastor also prayed for the Chairman of Amuwo Odofin Local Government Area of Lagos State, Comrade Valentine Buraimoh for a successful tenure, tasking him on good governance.
“You cannot satisfy everybody. The sky is not your limit but your starting point,” he averred.
Also, the Provisional Pastor of the Province, Pastor Austin Ukuaiwe advised the council boss to be God fearing and prayerful. He added that Comrade Buraimoh should follow the footsteps of Comrade Ayodele Adewale, immediate past Chairman of the Local Government in terms of developmental projects.
Meanwhile, the council helsman in his address appreciated all for standing by him through the thick and thin of the election.
“I cannot thank you enough. When we started the journey, I came here for your support and blessings; now the storm is over, we can now sing, dance and praise the good Lord together for our victory. I promise to bring more visible developmental projects to our community. Thank you all, ” he stated.
Furthermore, the local government boss was a special guest of honour at the opening of PROVIDUSBANK in Festac Town, Lagos, where he reiterated his administration’s desire to partner with corporate bodies on meaningful projects.
Comrade Buraimoh also enjoined the revenue collectors of the local government to improve on the Internally Generated Revenue. He added that there is no room for excuses again; “our federal allocation alone cannot bring about speedy development and as a result we must brace up and face the challenges ahead”.
