FCT Minister Urges Churches Not to Neglect Politicians After Tenure

The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, emphasized the importance of churches continuing to support politicians even after they have served their terms in office. He made these remarks during the birthday celebration of the House of Representatives Minority Leader, Kingsley Ogundu Chinda, at St Mark’s Anglican Church in Port Harcourt.

Wike expressed concern that politicians who had contributed to churches while in office often faced neglect once their tenure ended. He urged the clergy to demonstrate consistency in their support for politicians and to uphold the principles they preach.

In his address, Wike stated, “The church should also remain steadfast; the church should also not abandon people when they’re no longer in office. When most of us were in office, there was no church we weren’t contributing to. But immediately we left office, it was a different story.”

He reminded the clergy of their role as agents of God and encouraged them to provide continuous support and prayers for politicians, regardless of their status or position.

Additionally, Speaker of the House, Tajudeen Abass, commended Chinda’s contributions to the lower chamber, describing him as one of the National Assembly’s exemplary members. Abass praised Chinda for representing Rivers State effectively and acknowledged his positive impact within the legislative body.
