Politics no longer a secular business, Christian youths should engage in politics - Rt. Hon John Gaul Lebo

|Azogor Ideba| 24th, September 2017|

Christian youths irrespective of denomination have been told to embrace politics as the system was in dire need of pious practitioners.

Cross River State House of Assembly Speaker Rt. Hon John Gaul Lebo gave the indication recently when the Executive members of the Dunamis Youth Ministry Calabar visited his office.

He maintained that politics was no longer a secular business as generally perceived, adding that God was keenly interested in leadership.

The Speaker said that beyond prayers, Christian youths must practically get involved and play active roles in determining who assumes political positions in the country if they must see the change they desire.

“The people rejoice when the righteous are in authority; and nothing stops you from joining a political party or even vying for a political office in Nigeria. It is time to volunteer your selves and make your voices count in politics of the country. What politics require is excellent and incorruptible leadership committed to selflessly serving the people and humanity in general”, he submitted

Hon Lebo remarked that good leadership was not only a rare factor in the country but also a bane to good governance and the development of the nation.

Speaking, the leader of the Dunamis Youth Ministry, Brother Nsikak Effiong said that the purpose of the visit was to intimidate the Speaker of its forth coming event targeted at rallying Christian youths for politics.

The event, according to the Nsikak Effiong which is scheduled to hold 3rdOctober will have the Speaker of the Cross River State House of Assembly Rt. Hon John Gaul Lebo speak on the topic: ‘Christian Youths in Politics’.  

He further solicited the support and cooperation of the Speaker towards the event.
