2023: Speculation over RCCG political block an attempt to split Christians, says Akinnola
Meanwhile, Nigerian journalist, author, lawyer, and activist, Richard Akinnola, believes the criticism of the RCCG over plans to set up a political unit is just a mischievous move by political actors to split the body of Christ.
Akinnola, a former editor of the Vanguard newspaper and executive director of the Centre for Free Speech Organisation, barred his mind in a post on social media which elicited similar reactions from other persons on the platform, many urging the church to carry on with its decision.
“I believe this red herring in respect of this move by the RCCG is just a mischievous move by a political camp to cause division within the body of Christ.
