President Goodluck Jonathan visits Winners Chapel

Three weeks to the general elections, President Goodluck Jonathan on Sunday visited one of the largest churches in Nigeria during its weekly service.

Just like he did in the run up to the 2011 presidential election when he visited the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Mr. Jonathan, Sunday, visited the Living Faith Church, also known as the Winners Chapel, Ota.

Since the 2011 visit to the RCCG where he was criticised by some Nigerians for kneeling before the General Overseer of the Church, Enoch Adeboye, thus using religion to curry political favour, Mr. Jonathan has been a regular visitor to popular churches in the country and abroad. He has gone on pilgrimage to Israel at least twice since he became president. He is also a close friend of the President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Ayo Oritsejafor.

Anglican Church Calls For Credible Election

The Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion has commended the Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) for the pre-election arrangements to ensure a credible election in February.

INEC was commended in a communique issued at the end of the 2015 annual Bishops’ retreat held at Ibru Ecumenical Centre, Agbarha-Otor from the 5th of January to the 10th of January, 2015 presided over by Primate of the Church, Rev. Nicholas D. Okoh.

The Church also advised political office seekers to ensure that the unity of the nation is not put in jeopardy by any reckless action or utterance.
