The Communique jointly signed by the Chairman, Joint DCCs Forum, Reverend Raphael Omotosho and Secretary Joint DCCs Forum, Reverend Jacob Olukayode noted that “in due recognition of prayer being the master key and in obedience to the testament of God, we resolved to continue to pray for Nigeria our Jerusalem, the candidates vying for various political positions and those in authority for direction to uphold justice and care for the needy and vulnerable, destitute who are in their numbers in our midst”.

“As participation in politics has become increasingly necessary for formulation of better policies and laws to enthrone ethical and moral standards and protect the interest of the people, we resolved to continue to constantly sensitize Christians to be active partakers in political movements, particularly in the collection and use of their voters cards to vote for people of unassailable integrity, with good character, capacity, and track record to take the nation out of the woods, for the good of the citizens and with the strong belief that Nigeria will be great again” it added.
