A former pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Bankole Solomon has taken on the General Overseer (GO) of the church, Pastor E A Adeboye for allegedly turning the yearly Holy Ghost Congress into a political congress.

The former pastor said in a post that the yearly spiritual programme, which attracts millions of visitors to the Redemption camp venue of the congress located along the Lagos/Ibadan Expressway, is gradually becoming a place where politician come to deceive worshippers with ‘fake’ promises.

Bankole, who claimed to have resigned as a pastor of RCCG in 2010 due to some rights discrimination, stated in his post that it was wrong for President Jonathan to have stood on the ‘once sacred altar’ to speak to the congregation when he knew he was not being truthful with what he was promising Nigerians.

Bankole’s full post reads
“I know this post will attract a sharp condemnation because I worship in RCCG and I was once a pastor before I resigned voluntarily because of rights violations in the name of religion. I resigned in December 2010 but I am still worshipping there as an ordinary member. So, whatever. I have here is without prejudice.

“Holy ghost congress of our great church is now a political congress where all shades of corrupt leaders will mount our altar to fool Nigerians on what they will do.

“Holy Ghost congress is now a supermarket where all kinds of people like charlatans and political opportunist come shopping turning God to father Christmas to give dem end of d year bonus.

“Jonathan was even there turning our once sacred altar to political podium talking deceitfully and indirectly campaigning for 2015. My question is this? On what ground was president Jonathan allowed to speak to people. Is he a pastor? Because the gathering is purely a spiritual gathering and event.

“I’ve been a pastor in Redeemed for the past 10 years and I’ve not got any opportunity to sit on dat altar not to talk of holding mic. If because Jonathan is a President and he is recognised, it means some are more equal than others.

“Immediately I left camp on Saturday morning, I looked at the camp very well because I know that would be the last time I willl set my foot to that Eagle Square called Redeemed camp.”

Do you think Bankole is right?

    The issue is not that of right or wrong. In my opinion, it is OK to allow the President address the Holly Ghost Congress. It is left for the President to know he is before God and as such speak truthfully.

    I am of the Catholic denomination, it is my beliefs that God sees the heart of men. He is therefore able to Judge men. President Jonathan would be undoing himself if he stand before God to talk in usual Nigeria political style.

    I believe we should leave him to himself and God, giving him the benefit of the doubt that he is truthful because he spoke on the Alter of God Almighty.

    As for you Bankole, you resigned after 10 years! Hmmmmm. Well again this is spiritual, I must also leave that to the all knowing God.

    It is not in my usual character to comment but need to advice that it is a good thing to allow the President to speak in the congregation of the people of God and before God. That way he makes promises before men and God.
