RCCG thanks Fayose for choosing Ogunsakin as Eleka’s running mate


The Redeemed Christian  Church of God (RCCG) has thanked Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State for choosing Deji Ogunsakin, one their active members, as the running mate of Prof. Olusola Eleka, the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) towards the July 14 election.
The letter of appreciation was dated July 2 2018 and signed by one Pastor Bayo Olugbemi on behalf of Victory Parish (My Fathers’ House) of RCCG in Magodo, Lagos.
The church noted that Deji Ogunsakin was not only a very active member, but a committed worker in the church.
The RCCG letter may have put a lie to the initial impression created by the Ekiti PDP that Ogunsakin was a practising Muslim
Though born a Muslim, Ogunsakin got converted and baptised into Christianity and has since been a member of the RCCG family.
The letter reads in part: “Following the selection of our member, Mr. Deji Ogunsakin, as the PDP  Deputy Governorship candidate for Ekiti State by your Excellency, the entire members and Pastorate of the RCCG, Victory Chapel (My Father’s House), Magodo Lagos appreciate the good gesture of the People’s Governor, Dr. Peter Ayodele Fayose.
“You will recall the church prayed earnestly after Your Excellency consulted our parish about your desire to choose our member and your candid request for the Parish to do background checks on brother Deji Ogunsakin.”
“It is also pertinent to correct the impression from some quarters in Ekiti that our brother, though born by Moslem parentage, is not a Moslem but a practicing Christian who gave his life to Christ and was duly baptised according to the doctrine of the Redeemed Christian Church and as laid down by our General Overseer, Pastor Enoch Adeboye.”
“This clarification became necessary to safeguard the family of our brother, especially his wife who feels the family faith and religious association are being ridiculed because of politics. She consequently appealed to our church to put the records straight to the public that herself, husband, Mr. Deji Ogunsakin and children are not Moslems but Christians.”
Meanwhile, the Chief Imam of Ekiti State, Sheik Jamiu Kewulere, has urged some selected Muslim clerics to organise a special prayer for the success of Eleka and Ogunsakin towards the forthcoming governorship election in the state.
A source said that the Chief Imam asked them to organise the special Islamic prayer for Ogunsakin and forward the video coverage of the prayer to him.
