A MAN OF GOD AND POLITICS IN CAMEROON, STRENGTH AND PARTICULARITY OF PROPHET FRANK
Category : NEWS
The announcement of prophet Franklin Ndifor Afanwi’s candidacy for the 2018 presidential elections in Cameroon, took many by surprise. Most Cameroonians saw it as a child’s play, some began questioning, how can a man of God quit the pulpit to contest for the post of a president? Others quickly drew their conclusions that; the man of God is being sponsored by the Yaounde regime to animate the political gallery and create space for the incumbent, Paul Biya to harvest his votes without stress.
Another school of thought went as far as condemning the move by saying that it is forbidden for a clergy to join politics talk less of vying for the top job of the country. These negative perceptions held by many is as a result of the erroneous narratives that characterizes the political landscape in Cameroon, such as; politics is a dirty game, one must join a cult before he or she succeed in it, politics is meant for lies, very cruel people and just to name a few.
As a matter of fact, many others who are enlightened, saw it as answered prayer from God to deliver Cameroon from the tight gripe of the devil, especially when prophet frank’s candidacy was retained by Elections Cameroon amongst the nine contenders for the race to the unity palace.
A MAN OF GOD AND POLITICS IN CAMEROON
It has gone down the annals of history and written in archives that, Franklin Ndifor Afanwi being a pastor/ prophet, is the first ever clergy to contest for the presidential elections in Cameroon. However, Cameroonians have failed to understand that, it is difficult to draw the dichotomy between religion and politics especially in this modern world. We are too affected by the political structure to believe that our religion can be divorced from this reality. More to that, as Christians, the necessity is laid upon us to speak prophetically to those structures that stifle our freedom and participation in nation building via politics. Taking such a radical decision to be the pace setter in Cameroon despite the vey hostile and rough political terrain, can only be a man who hears from God such as Prophet Frank. In Cameroon, some men of God such as, Cardinal Christian Tumi, Bishop Ndongmo, Bishop Joseph Befe Ateba, Rev. Dieudonne Masi Gams and others have been perambulating along the corridors of politics in, but have never mustered courage to bid for the presidential office. However, prophet frank has chosen to make a difference by standing tall amongst his colleagues, to answer a call which is seen to be controversial in the Christendom by those with little or no faith.
STRENGTH AND PARTICULARITY OF PROPHET FRANK.
The fact that, prophet frank hears from God, is enough evidence to corroborate the fact that his decision to become the president of Cameroon is coming from God. He has been in the prophetic ministry for close to a decade with resounding testimonies around the world. More to that, his leadership skills is not something to be questioned, going by his achievements.
The general overseer of the Kingship ministries international has trained hundreds of pastors and church leaders who are impacting lives around the globe, leading a congregation of over ten thousand Christians, touching the lives of millions in and out of Cameroon, are enough reasons for all and sundry to vote massively for God’s servant and chosen one for Cameroon, Franklin Ndifor Afanwi, come October 7 2018.
