Reno Omokri, a close advisor to former president Goodluck Jonathan, has charged Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate Peter Obi with regularly going to churches for no other reason than to advance his political ambitions.
He asserted that Obi has simply been attending churches to gain support for him in the next elections.
He cited the Bible while criticizing the former governor of Anambra for going to churches “for votes,” pointing out that Christ dealt with and chased away those who tried to destroy the temple physically.
Omokri also pondered what punishment Christ may have meted out to politicians like Obi for “seeking votes” in the church.
“Peter Obi is not visiting churches for God or Christ or to gain souls or to advance his spiritual life,” he declared. He visits churches to solicit votes. Money changers were forced out of the Temple by Christ, who had created a whip. What do you suppose He would do to candidates for office in the Temple?
