VP Osinbajo Erred The Day He Ignored This Verse...
Nigerian Vice President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo was a pastor of The Redeemed Christian Church of God before he became vice president. The decision to leave pastoral work for politics was a personal one for him.

Over time, it has been an topic for debate whether Christians should actively get involved in politics. The reason for this is not far fetched. The reason remains that politics has been misconceived in the recent past by politicians. 

Personally to me, there is nothing wrong with believers getting involved in politics. To me, politics is an institution ordained by God to manage the affairs of the society. Some people say politics is a dirty game, but I disagree with them. To me, it is some people who are involved in politics that are actually dirty.

But in as much as Christians would want to participate in politics, there is need to abide by what The Holy Bible says. The Bible in book of 2Corinthian 6:14 says,

“Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?”

In Christianity, anyone who does not believe in Jesus Christ is regarded as an unbeliever. From the verse above, Christians are to not get yoked together with unbelievers. 

But this seems to be the opposite when it comes to Professor Yemi Osinbajo who is a Christian and Mr Buhari who is a Muslim. The question now is, is decision of Osinbajo to become the vice of a Muslim right when viewed from Christian perspective? If not, the vice president may have renounced his Faith when he made up his mind to run for an election with Buhari.

It is obvious that people of different backgrounds express different views on issues. Does it mean that the actions and inactions of the Buhari government has reflected the good intentions of former Pastor Osinbajo? To me, there is absolutely no way that Christians and Muslims can share the same view on broad issues affecting this country.

We will appreciate your opinions our esteemed reader.
