An ex-pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Bankole Solomon, has slammed the church for turning its annual Holy Ghost Congress into a political ground where perceived corrupt politicians come for blessing and to campaign.

Mr. Solomon, who posted his displeasure on his Facebook wall, said it was disheartening to allow such corrupt leaders to mount the altar and deceive the country’s citizens with unrealistic promises.

Bankole, who claimed to have resigned as an RCCG pastor in 2010, categorically said he was put off by the appearance of President Goodluck Jonathan at the altar last Saturday to speak to the congregation when it is widely known that he is not a truthful president.

The post read: “Holy Ghost congress of our great church is now a political congress where all shades of corrupt leaders will mount our altar to fool Nigerians on what they will do.

“Holy Ghost congress is now a supermarket where all kinds of people like charlatans and political opportunists come shopping turning God to F

Jonathan kneels down for blessings

ather Christmas to give them end of d year bonus.

“Jonathan was even there turning our once sacred altar to political podium talking deceitfully and indirectly campaigning for 2015.

“My question is this? On what ground was President Jonathan allowed to speak to people. Is he a pastor? Because the gathering is purely a spiritual gathering and event.

“I’ve been a pastor in Redeemed for the past 10 years and I’ve not got any opportunity to sit on that altar not to talk of holding mic.

“If because Jonathan is a President and he is recognised, it means some are more equal than others.”

The former pastor, who said he was ready for the sharp condemnation his post would attract, added: “immediately I left camp on Saturday morning, I looked at the camp very well because I know that would be the last time I will set my foot to that Eagle Square called Redeemed camp.”

He said he resigned in December 2010, but had continued to worship in the church till that day President Jonathan visited.

    Pastor Bankole is not an Area Pastor or Zonal Pastor in charge, if he his must have been sitting at the altar. Also my Pastor should go and learn the about the history of the land in Ede where the permanet campus of RUN will be. Pastor Bankole hatred for GEJ should not be cloud what is right. Even as bad as Ahab was Elijah still atteneded to him, God bless Nigeria, God will continue to strengthen my daddy, Daddy GO.

      that pst bankola solomon must have done something that made him leave redeemd churc. but after leaving, what was he doing @ theHoly Ghost Congress? meaning he knows that God is there. Jesus never sent any sinner away frm His presence bcs He came for the lost sheep of isreal not for the saints. if the church is for the saints, then no need to preach to the sinners. IF U CAREFULLY STUDY THAT PST SOLOMON BANKOLE WITH SPIRITUAL SATTELITE, U WILL DISCOVER THAT HE HAD BACKLIDED FOR A VERY LONG TIME. He said bcs Jonothan was allowed to speak that he (Bankole) will never step his feet to the redemption Camp. pls u people need to pray for him bcs such must have backslided. PLS PRAY FOR HIM

    Shut up Subare… you’re an idiot and will never open your eyes and learn…. what the hell is Jonathan doing there if not to campaign for next tenure while he has done nothing so far… Some Nigerians are blindfolded and in serious bondage of all these thieves called pastors and man of GOD…What have the so called men of God and pastors done for the poor and needy congregation rather than milking them dry of their source of livelihood? God I hope you are seeing these evil men… pls do something fast…..

      Menyoooo, I was once like you. I complained bitterly about the situation of this country but when God touched my heart; I saw no reason to complain. Pastors are varied. We are in End Time no doubt but there is no point of judging anyone if truly you are a Christian. Bible told us not to judge. (Matthew 7:1-3)

      As for President GoodLuck Jonathan, the house of God is for everyone. Jesus Christ did not come because of the whole; He came because of the sick. (Mark 2:17). Therefore, President Jonathan is by far welcome to the house of God. In fact, if he is a Muslim, he is equally welcome. The house of God is for all irrespective of your language, tribes, culture, colour, country etc. so far you are human, you are welcome.

      Menyoooo, I will advise you to seek the face of the LORD and keep serving and obeying Him Job 36:11. I was once serving and obeying devil but Today, glory be to God for letting me see the light. What I mean by obeying and serving devil then was that, I always found it difficult to go to Church; On Sundays, I prefer playing football, draft, table tennis, gambles, visiting cinema, watching movies at home and hotels etc. But with God all things are possible. I am now a change person and a bonafide member of RCCG whom the LORD has blessed exceedingly.

      For Bankole Solomon, I will advise him to seek the face of the LORD and turn away from criticizing any man of God. We are not to be judged neither do we have power to judge anyone.

      May God continue to strengthen and empower us all. We are all sinners; may He forgive us for our iniquities.

  5. If Jonathan came to the Holy Ghost congress, shouldn’t he be honoured as the head of Nigeria? What does the Bible say about those in authority in the world? What is the shortest route to praying for Nigeria when the Head of Nigeria was around? Doesn’t biblical wisdom tell you, it is through the head of Nigeria? If the head is rotten, won’t the body be rotten? Where then is best to start removing the rotten-ness? Should Daddy GO have censored GEJ’s speech before giving him the podium? Wasn’t OBJ accorded the same respect before he abused it? Mr Bankole, I am sure you were Mr no-body in RCCG and if truely you were a Pastor, you were de-ordained for acts unbecoming of your spiritual post. How many Pastors could be accommodated on the pulpit during the Congress? Isn’t it commendable that Daddy GO is accommodating many other young Ministries outside the RCCG in the annual HGC? Anyway, Bankole, it is sahara Reporter that is at fault for allowing somebody of your type to vent his spleen on a purely spiritual matter. Who are those cursing you? They are merely responding to your mail and advising you!! Why should any responsible person threaten you? They should instead pray for you, you need God’s mercy, and I pray He answers our prayers for restoration on you and to lift off permanently the veil on your face.

    I resides outside of Nigeria. Look my brothers and sisters who have commented here, try to be conscious of all, Baba Adeboye can’t chase GEJ away. Church of God is for all irrespective of status or others.

    Even if GEJ attended the service, he should have done so as a private person not mounting the pulpit to address the congregation and not publishing it on the pages of newspaper. Is only in Nigeria that people like GEJ can be a president.

    @ Ige.thanks for your comment.you wrote wisely.I want to draw your attention to your last parragraph.If u have received Christ as i gather u have,U are not a sinner.U are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.Don’t label yourself as one.Gos bless u..

  9. B-BUDS

    I DOUBT IF YOU (BANKOLE SOLOMON) EVER BELONG TO THE REDEEMED CHRISTIAN CHURCH OF GOD NOT TO TALK OF ONCE BEING A PASTOR THERE, IN THE FIRST INSTANCE. FROM YOUR STATEMENT HOWEVER, IT IS OBVIOUS THAT YOU ARE AN UNPROFITABLE SERVANT! IN FACT, YOUR STATE OF SPIRITUAL WELLNESS/SANITY IS ALSO IN SERIOUS DOUBT! IT’S ONLY GOD HIMSELF THAT CAN REDEEM YOU. YOU NEED TO PURGE YOURSELF AND SEEK FOR FORGIVENESS FROM GOD SERIOUSLY, OTHERWISE…

  10. I just wonder why people would find it very easy to condemn a man of God even when he is perceived to be wrong. God frowns at such negative atittude of men.

  11. frank monye

    The whole scenario is laughable. Yes, it is laughable when a devil goes to church for blessing.
