Senior Pastor of Flock of Christ Mission in Warri, Delta state, Bishop Simeon Okah, has told his members they would not be allowed to worship without their Permanent Voter Cards.
The South-South Vice President of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria noted that Christians should no longer disenfranchise themselves from voting.
He told reporters on Saturday that, “From Thursday, any member of my church who does not have his or her voter card would not enter this house (Church). By the grace of God, I am the one God used in founding the Flock of Christ Mission.”
On Senator Dino Melaye’s travails, he said, “I have concerns for Dino. His hands may not be as clean as a saint but a man like him has a role to play in building this country.
“We need men like Dino. Let everybody of goodwill fight to see that Dino is released; if he has criminal records, he should face it but he should not be kept in detention.
“He is intelligent. Let us see how we can save him from the hands of policemen. For a man like Dino, the police should show some level of leniency, because we need people like Dino in this country if we want this country to be great.”
