Obasanjo Urges Christians to Venture Into Politics to Prevent Fraudulent Elections

During the 57th annual convention and 67th anniversary of The Gospel Faith Mission International held at Gospel City in Ogun State, former President Olusegun Obasanjo emphasized that Nigerian elections are plagued by corruption.

He encouraged Christians to engage actively in politics to bring about transparency and integrity.

Addressing the theme of ‘The Roles of the Church in Nation Building at a Time Like This’, Obasanjo highlighted that during periods of insecurity, hopelessness, poverty, and depression, circumstances that are unfavorable for livelihood, the church should step forward as a transformative force, analogous to the salt of the world.

His words: “The foundation of election in Nigeria is corruption and you cannot make corruption the foundation of anything for it to be good.”
