Benin City - The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Edo Region 13 headquarters (Trinity Sanctuary) in Benin City, Edo State has allegedly been converted to the campaign office of Osagie Ize-Iyamu, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the September 10 governorship election in the state, reports NewsDay.

Banners of the PDP and its candidate adorn all the walls of the church.

Ize-Iyamu is a zonal pastor in the church in the state.

It was also learnt that the regional pastor of the church in Edo State, Pastor James Dagunduro has given instructions to parish pastors to canvass for Ize-Iyamu in their parishes.

According to Nigerian Nation, two campaign jingles of Ize-Iyamu were repeatedly played in the teenage Church of Trinity Sanctuary on Sunday, August 21 and no other message was preached to the teenagers.

It was gathered that a minister in the church who complained that the church was being turned into a political arena was reprimanded and transfered.

Aggrieved members of the church it was gathered have petitioned the General Overseer of the Church, Pastor EA Adeboye to wade into the matter.
