Senior pastor of House On The Rock Church, Pastor Paul Adefarasin, Sunday, revealed the plans by some Christian leaders to influence the choice of presidential candidate their church members should vote for.
Adefarasin made this revelation during his preaching on Sunday.
The cleric also called on Christians to get their Permanent Voter Card (PVC) to vote for candidates endorsed by church leaders to influence the 2023 general elections.
He further told his congregants that instructions regarding which political candidates to vote for would be provided.
“When we get closer, we will share the profile of the candidate that you should vote for and the ones who tick the most boxes,” he said.
“Those are the ones you should vote for. It is imperative that every believer; online and offline, you must get your PVC.
“I’m a man under authority; once used to be the Deputy President of the PFN (Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria) and did not want to go further in that structure, in that executive office, so I can have more time to pastor this church and other things I feel like God is telling me to do. I’m still on the National Advisory Council and we have been instructed that every Christian, every human being you can contact must have a PVC and must prepare to vote.
“When we get closer, we will share the profile of the candidate that you should vote for and the ones who tick the most boxes, those are the ones you should vote for.
“We believe, we can get 15 million more voters and that becomes a very significant bloc that must be respected and it adds to the platform of our voice, harmonised as Christian leaders.
“One thing that the next president absolutely must be is a respecter of the law.”
Recently, the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) established a directorate to oversee political aspirants in the church and monitor their success.
