2019: ‘Churches now aware there is religion in politics – Demola Olarewaju

“In the build-up to the 2015 elections, many clerics in parts of the country openly asked their followers to vote against the PDP as it’s candidate was an “infidel”.
Churches have now woken up to the reality of religion in politics and demanding their members get PVCs and vote.
Maybe this is something that can be tapped into to stir voters out of electoral apathy.
Whatever it is, people now realise that there is religion in politics, ethnicity in politics, even gender issues in politics – and yes, they are all real and valid issues.
I’ve seen people (political neophytes mostly) say “these and these tactics” were what got GEJ voted out of power and since PDP can’t replicate it, no hope.
But I remind myself of a lesson I learnt in one joint like that:
There is always more than one way to kill a catfish.
