The memo which leaked online came as political parties and politicians gear up for electioneering campaigns ahead of the 2023 general election.

Vice-president Yemi Osinbajo, a senior pastor of the RCCG, is believed to be nursing a presidential ambition, but he is yet to officially declare his intention.
Comments on social media insinuate that the directive from the church, a leading Pentecostal church in Nigeria with about 32,000 parishes, is geared towards rallying support for the VP.
But the RCCG Spokesperson, Pastor Olaitan Olubiyi, has debunked it.
According to him, the directive existed long ago and is targeting at getting people involved in politics.
“There is nothing connecting Osinbajo with the directorate; RCCG has been mobilising, creating political awareness long since transition from military to civil rule. RCCG has made it a policy to educate its members on political education – get voter cards, no violence.
“The directorate has nothing to do with Osinbajo or anybody. I don’t know why people are linking something the church has been doing which every organisation should be doing to him,” he said.
