Adeboye tasks Nigerians, politicians on love at Christmas
General Overseer, the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG, World-wide), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has urged Nigerians to use the Christmas period to show peace and love for one another.
He also called on politicians to be prepared to practice true democracy, by avoiding every move that could lead to violence in the coming election.
Adeboye made the call through the Assistant General Overseer, Administration & Personnel, Pastor Johnson Odesola, during the Christmas programme tagged: Go-A-Fishing.
About 15, 000 worshippers gathered at Centre for Management Development (CMD), Lagos, where prayers were also offered for the 2019 election, and assured Nigerians that God was already in control.
He said: “Nigeria belongs to God and the coming election is in His hand, which calls for assurance that there is nothing to be afraid of.
“The world is very surprised that despite the challenges of Boko Haram and our state of economy, the nation still evolved as the biggest economy in Africa.”
He advised politicians to conduct themselves in a peaceful manner and not to promise during their campaigns, what they would not be able to deliver.
He reminded them that ruling is not by force under the ‘democracy’ that Nigeria is practicing.
The cleric told them to abandon the spirit of ‘do-or-die’ affair and also communicate this to their followers, as they wait to try again, if they fail.
He likened the programme as reason Jesus Christ came to the world, which was not for Him, but mankind.
Adeboye explained that His coming ushered in the period of signs and wonders, as well as miracles.
He added that the Go-A-Fishing programme was designed for worshippers to be given something to celebrate with in terms of food.
He said it was also a period that would bring miracles of healing and others to participants.
The cleric implored Nigerians to imbibe the spirit of humility, love, care, obedience, forgiveness, which were all the virtues that Jesus Christ came to manifest.
