Ahead of the 2023 general elections, the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) has created the “Office of Directorate of Politics and Governance”.

In a memo dated February 28, 2022, addressed to all pastors in charge of regions and provinces, the church said “We write to formally notify you that the mission authority has created the Office of Directorate of Politics and Governance in the RCCG.”

“Further to this, Pastor Timothy Olaniyan (PICP Lagos Province 12) has been appointed to lead the Office,” the letter reads.

“You are kindly requested to appoint with immediate effect a Provincial Officer for your Province and also ensure that the same is done at all levels of the Chruch – Zone, Area, and Parish. The essence of this Directorate is to help coordinate the engagement of our people who are willing to be involved in politics as well as mobilise support for them when required.”

“Kindly send to the office of the undersigned details of your Regional and Provinces Coordinators within the next two weeks of receiving this letter.”

“May the good Lord bless you always in Jesus’ Name, Amen”.

Osinbajo’s ambition

RCCG is said to have over five million members across the country. The new move by the church may be in connection with the speculations about the vice president, Yemi Osinbajo, a senior pastor in the church who might be running to become president of Nigeria in 2023.
