Wike Admonishes Clergymen Not To Abandon Politicians After Office Term




By Stephen Asaba-ase

The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, on Sunday, advised that churches should not abandon politicians after their service in office.

Wike stated this at St Mark’s Anglican Church in Port Harcourt during the celebration of the House of Representatives Minority Leader, Kingsley Ogundu Chinda 58th birthday.

He maintained that politicians always contribute to churches but get abandoned when their term of office ends.

The minister also urged the clergy men to practice what they preach, admonishing that they should always pray for the political class.

His words: “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 is no church we had not contributed to. But immediately we left office, it was a different story.

“You, as a representative of God, must show that you’re exercising what you preach. Always be there for us; pray for us; be there for us and don’t change.”

Meantime, the Speaker of the House, Tajudeen Abass, applauded Chinda’s contributions to the lower chamber, describing him as one of the best hands in the National Assembly.

“Hon Kingsley Chinda remains one of the best products in the National Assembly, and ever since he stepped into the NASS, he has been giving Rivers State very good representation,” the Speaker said.
