He said it is the duty of Christians to “enthrone” good leaders by voting.

“Christians must actively get involved in politics to enthrone good governance at all levels. If men who are righteous and fear God are in power, the people rejoice,” said Mr Mogekwu during a sermon on Sunday, Nov. 14.

He added: “Pastors should ensure their members get their PVCs before they take communion and do other worship services in the household of God.”

He continued: “As communion is important to us as Christians, which makes us healthy, spirit-filled and very strong, it is such with the PVC that makes us enthrone good governance at any level.”

The clergyman added that Christians who refused to vote during the election had committed a sin and that children of God should not murmur or complain when evil men are in power.
