The National President of Southern Nigeria Christian Vanguard, His Grace Most Rev Dr Isaac Nwobia, weekend, inaugurated Imo State local government Coordinators of the group, with a charge to pray and work very hard so as to ensure that a born again Christian emerges the next president of Nigeria.
Nwobia, who is the Anglican Archbishop of Aba Province, Church of Nigeria, said Imo is one of the latest states inaugurated and commended the State Officers for their efforts towards achieving the mandate of the association.
He lamented the ugly state of Imo where insecurity is threatening the peace of citizens and called for prayers, adding that mourning is not the portion of children of God.
The Archbishop prophesied that the winner of 2023 election will be a Christian, and urged the electorates to guide their votes jealously during the election.
“Be at the polling booth, guide the vote until they send the result. We are in partnership with all of you to enthrone a Godly person in 2023”, Nwobia emphasized.
Imo State Chairman of Southern Nigeria Christian Vanguard, Prof. Oliver Alozie said the group aims to correcting the ills of the society.
Alozie who was the immediate former Vice Chairman of PFN, Okigwe Zone, said the church is concerned about a righteous ruler, stressing that it is only when the righteous is on the throne that the people rejoice.
He noted that Nigerians and the church have been enslaved for too long and called for freedom through what he described as salvation equilibrium, a means to liberate the people from sickness, poverty and political instability.
He charged the newly inaugurated Coordinators to go ahead and educate their members and others on how important it is to vote-in righteous people in 2023.
“This time around, the church is seriously involved, because it is one of the spiritual mandates God has given to us that when the righteous rules, the people rejoice”, Prof. Alozie explained.
He praised the national president, Archbishop Nwobia for the vision to establish the association and prayed God to enrich him with more wisdom and good health.
Director in charge of Research and Strategies, Rev Austin Uchegbu said for so long the southern part of Nigeria has not had a Christian organization that is purely political.
“It’s as a result of this that Southern Nigeria Christian Vanguard was established”, he added.
Rev. Uchegbu described the group as a political voice that will determine a lot for the Southerners in 2023.
“We will not sit at the back in this new political dispensation. We refuse to be only prayer contractors but play the politics and ensure that right leaders emerge.”
He advised the LG coordinators to make themselves relevant before 2023, noting that the church has the greatest political structure.
Owerri North Coordinator, Rev. Udo Nwanguma who spoke on behalf of other Coordinators, appreciated the National President and State Officers for finding them worthy of such task and promised that they won’t fail.
Mayor of PFN Imo State Chapter and Bishop of Believers Gospel Mission Worldwide, Rev Dr Onyekachi Ukachi, The Leader of OAIC in Imo and Imo Deputy Chairman, CAN, Most Apostle Bethel Onumajuru, and High Chief Vincent Levi, candidate for Ngor Okpala-Aboh Mbaise Federal Constituency, were among the dignitaries that graced the occasion.
