Prof Dakas urges believers to participate in politics to produce good leaders
Prof Dakas CJ Dakas, SAN, a frontline governorship aspirant in the 2023 Plateau State gubernatorial election, has called on believers to be involved in partisan politics to ensure that God-fearing people emerge as leaders.
Dakas stressed that gone were the days when politics was viewed as the exclusive preserve of a certain section of the society, hence the Christian faithful should get involved in active politics so that good leaders emerge and are placed in areas of responsibility.
The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) stalwart who gave the admonition at the just concluded Forty Fourth Annual Plateau Baptist Conference which held in Jos, also urged the congregation to guard their unity jealously because “united we stand, divided we fall.”
According to the erudite lawyer, academic and philanthropist, “if citizens exhibit a high sense of unity among themselves regardless of their diverse differences and genuinely demonstrate same, it would culminate in the growth of the people.”
Prof Dakas who was a special guest at the session which drew a large gathering of brethren across various walks of life, implored “citizens to always stand for the truth and work with each other in areas that will benefit generality of the populace.”
He also told the congregation that the Church must sustain its prayers for Plateau State and Nigeria so that their leaders would continue to do what is right.
Dakas congratulated the Plateau Baptist Conference on the occasion of the auspicious event and promised to always be available when needed to add to knowledge, drawing from his long standing relationship with the Baptist Family which, according to him, spans a very long period.
He also commended the leadership of the Conference under the President,Rev.Dr.K.K.Saleh and prayed that God would continue to be at the center of all their affairs.
