Keyamo warns Pastors
The Minister of State for Labour, Festus Keyamo, lately sent a concept to Nigerian pastors forward of the 2023 election.
Talking for the duration of an job interview with Punch, Keyamo warned pastors to be mindful of political predictions as they might regret the final result just after the 2023 polls.
He suggested pastors to study from the 2015 election and stay clear of throwing their pounds at the rear of any presidential prospect.
He insisted that Clergymen should guide people today to the kingdom of God and not the presidential villa.
According to him: “Obtaining pastors tilt to a distinct candidate is a fantastic matter for the nation but just after they fall short, they will now go back again to their main mandate. It is a mistake they are making and it is important they make it. I considered they would have learnt their lessons to individual the church from politics in 2015 they have not.”
