The All Progressives Congress (APC) has cautioned the Deeper Life Bible Church and its founder, Pastor William Kumuyi, not to mislead Nigerians Daily Independent reports.
Pastor Kumuyi, was represented by the Delta State overseer of the church, Senior Pastor Obinna Nkemjika, at a media briefing in Asaba, argued that a cleric, who involves himself in political activities, had engaged in mundane things and lacks the vision for his pastoral calling.
He also said such cleric, may not be too far from the combination of the presidential candidates of APC, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, and Pastor Yemi Osinbajo in the forthcoming general elections.

But the Delta State chapter of the APC had disagreed with the church that the people would not be liberated from the shackles of oppression if anointed men of God do not take up the mantle of leadership, urging the church not to deceive Christians.
State Publicity Secretary of the party, Isaac Adaka Adakpo, in an interview, maintained that the era has come for politics to be Christianized, maintaining that Christians have no reason to complain if the ungodly ones find their ways into the helms of affairs because they were afforded the same opportunity.
He said: “Christians should become politicians, take chieftaincy titles and become kings because if you reject politics as a Christian and say it is ungodly, then the ungodly people take over and you do not have to complain. We need to Christianise politics.”
Adakpo, in a veiled reply, said the country is currently sinking low amidst the fallen oil price and depreciating currency because the affairs of the nation lie in the hands of clueless leaders, who, he said, “have no fear of God.”

He urged Christians, especially clerics, who are already politicking, to get their acts together if Nigeria must be liberated.
“It is imperative, therefore, for those seeking political power among them in the upcoming general elections to sit-up.
“That is why we are calling for change, which is the more reason why Nigerians must, for uprightness, vote out on March 28 and April 11 the looters of our common destiny,” he emphasized.
