A group under the auspices of Abuja Grassroots Project has advised against staging political protest at Church premises to score what it described as ‘cheap points’.
Mr Yunusa Yusuf, Coordinator of the group, made the call at a news conference at the Dunamis International Church, in Abuja on Sunday.
Yusuf said that the Church of God should prevail against every evil plan.
He added that a person’s position should not be used to ridicule the Church for selfish reasons.
He said that the group would do everything within the orbit of law to prevent political protest from happening in the Church.
“Dunamis International is a Church, not protest ground that anybody will want to come with branded t-shirts meant for protest, just to score cheap political or social points.
“The Church of God must be given the respect it deserves and not be desecrated by selfish politicians or any vested groups.
“We cannot, under our watch, sit down and allow any person or group to destroy the hard-earned reputation of God’s servant, Dr Paul Enenche in a very cheap manner.
“Because, in the course of our Christian voyage, we have been following the activities of Pastor Enenche, and we have seen that he has a passion for soul-winning.
“So, we will not allow anybody to come out from anywhere to tarnish the good name that the man of God has built-in his years or total service to God Almighty,” he said

Tinubu’s inauguration: We’re in charge here – Enenche dares witches, wizards coming to FCT
The Senior Pastor of Dunamis International Gospel Center, Dr Paul Enenche has issued stern warning to witches and wizards coming into the Federal Capital Territory for the May 29 presidential inauguration.
It would be recall that the White Witches and Wizards Association of Nigeria had on May 1st, said they were making efforts to storm the nation’s capital in a bid to cleanse and detoxify the environment for the President-elect, Bola Tinubu to operate in.
The Spokesperson of the association, Okhue Obo who stated this in a statement, assured the President-elect of a peaceful inauguration, warning those plotting to scuttle the event to desist.
The statement reads partly, “There is no reason for Tinubu to be afraid because all the campaigns of calumny mounted against him are mere threats.
“We are currently making efforts to clean and detoxify the Abuja environment where Tinubu will operate from”.
Our correspondent gathered that some members of the association stormed Abuja earlier in the week to carry out the proposed cleansing and detoxification.
Reacting to the development, Enenche who spoke on Friday night during the just concluded Destiny Recovery Convention, dared the witches and wizards, saying “we are in charge here”.
The fiery man of God instructed other clergymen to anoint strategic places in the city as a spiritual battle against other forces.
He said, “There are some agents of the devil that said they are coming to cleanse this city.
“Anybody who is from the devil, sent from the pit of hell that enters this city to plant any agenda of hell, if they are not cut off then we have no right to preach.
“Every witches and bitches, lizards and wizards, Hey! We are serving you notice to let you know we are in charge here and we are not about to change our minds.
“Pastors, we are going to take prophetic action in this city within the next 24 hours. Carry bottles of oil and go through the territory, anoint the ground and pour oil on this ground.
Every agent of the devil who steps on this ground for a demonic agenda is a dead agent.
“Every agent of the devil who steps into the city for the sake of Satan the devil, as we pour the fire on the earth, if they trample on this earth and still survive, we are not serving the living God.”
