The Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion, getting down to brass tacks about significant participation of the church in determining the course of politics and emergence of political leadership, has set up a department in the church for political mobilization ahead of the 2023 general elections.

The political department in the Anglican Communion was announced by the Primate and Metropolitan of all Nigeria, His Grace, Most Revd Henry Ndukuba.

This came on the heels of The Redeemed Christian Church of God’s announcement, setting up a political department in the church ahead of the crucial 2023 general polls.

Ndukuba made the announcement at the final stage of the 2022 Joshua Generation International Youth Conference, where he also inaugurated some other new departments in the church.

The political department is saddled with the responsibility of mentoring youths in the Anglican church and preparing them to actively participate in politics.

The political department is also to serve as a platform to encourage church members on the importance of getting their permanent voter cards (PVCs) and participating actively during elections.

The new department is also to help coordinate the engagement of the church members who are willing to be involved in politics as well as mobilize support for them.

While the scope of the department has yet to be fully defined, the general aim of the political department, according to the Primate, was to mobilise members of the Anglican church to actively participate in politics.
