Head of Love of Christ Generation Church, Rev. Mother Esther Ajayi, has said her church will not be turned to a campaign ground.
Ajayi, who has a lot of friends in the political circle, will on Sunday, September 4 mark the first anniversary of her Lagos cathedral.
Speaking on Wednesday at a press conference ahead of the church’s 15th anniversary and first anniversary of its Lagos cathedral, the clergywoman said her relationship with politicians would not make her flout the directives of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) against campaigning in religious centres.
She said, “We have to get ourselves right on this issue; coming to campaign for election is different from coming to worship the creator of the whole universe. It was my very first time seeing Kwankwaso the day he came to my church. Should I send him out of the church not to worship?
“If they come and start to say ‘you have to vote for me’, that is no longer a church service, it is a campaign ground and it is not going to happen here.
“If someone is a candidate and he has been worshiping in a church, won’t he or she go to church again or won’t they go the mosque? We have to know our limits. A church of God must not turn to a campaign ground.”
