He bluntly told the politicians present and those in absential that him and the Catholic Church priests will not side any politician in Rivers State. Below is some of his sermon statements captioned by DEZ MAYORZ.
“I was invited to my parish in the village this Sunday by a politician who is doing his Thanksgiving, and I told him that I have engagements in my chaplaincy, he wants me to come and endorse him but I will not endorse anybody.” – Fr Simeon Nwosu.
“I am neither APC nor PDP, I will only pray for them all to excel. The church faithful on their own will decide who to support….” – he added.
In his sermon that is centred on Baptism, he lamented how Christians belittle themselves instead of taking dominion of the power God has given them.
“You are higher and more powerful than witches and wizards.
Every prayerful Christians that is baptised should not be afraid rather should take dominion, because God has given us power, don’t entertain fear as long as you a prayerful Christian that is baptised in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. That is what you are, child of God, child of favor.” – Fr Simeon.
He call on Christians especially Catholics to lead the Christians accordingly by saying no to corruption and always do the needful to save this country.
