Christianity and Politics

... Where lies the boundary?


   It will be one speech many voices should Femi Gbajabiamila emerge the Speaker of the Ninth Federal House of Representatives that will by the grace of God be inaugurated in less than two months from today. Even his opponents are intimidated by his political pedigree.Having spent Sixteen unbroken years in the Lower Chamber of the National Assembly, one time Minority Leader and then another term as Majority Leader of the same Chamber. Only law makers with the credentials of the Pelosis of this world can boast of a better record.

With the voice of the most highly referred political god-father in APC speaking the same language as the blunt President and other power gladiators within the party that has now gotten its rhythm when it comes to party discipline, only a few extenuating political circumstances can unsettle Gbajabiamila and the voices that have agreed to anoint him as the next man to occupy the office that ranks fourth in the political hierarchy of Nigeria or what is otherwise known as the order of precedence.

This is not to say that there are no opposing interests and ambitions. However, most of those voices are either by groups that have not sown enough political seed to reap the harvest of an exalted post as that of the Speaker of the House of Representatives or in want of someone with sufficient credentials, or both.
