A Clarion Call for Proactive Participation in Politics by Nigerian Christians
The political culture of Nigerian politics is associated with corruption, election violence, thuggery, election malpractices, kidnapping and assassination of political opponents, political instability and many more. This has made many Nigerian Christians to conceive politics as a dirty game, evil and something not worth venturing in, but it is good to know that Christian responsibility extends from personal to the realm of politics. Hence, Christian participation in politics is a moral obligation that every adult Christian is obliged to do. Apostle Paul encouraged Christians to be submissive to the government Romans 13:1 Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. In Nigeria, the right to vote and to be voted for is not only a right but a civic responsibility. Christians should be involved in and contribute to democratic politics without losing sight of its mission and vision. Thus, Nigerian Christians in obedience to Romans 13:1 should actively participate in Nigerian politics to ensure social justice and equity in Nigerian society.
