In his address, Anchor International Outreach Ministry President, Pastor Bolarinwa Omotosho, noted that “The church is the solution to Nigeria’s ills today and if leaders can free their members who have the pedigree to participate in politics and are supported , the country would experience a positive change in Nigerian politics.”
