The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, on Wednesday faulted claims that he has deliberately refused to comment on national issues in Nigeria.
This was after a group of students and youths under the leadership of some notable artistes like Baba Fryo, Charley Boy and Eedris Abdulkarim protested at the Redemption Camp.
According to the group, they had come to show their unhappiness over the cleric’s supposed silence over killings of Christians, the establishment of cattle camps called RUGA and kidnapping in Nigeria.
Concise News learned that Pastor Adeboye, in a statement issued by the Head of RCCG Public Relations, Pastor Olaitan Olubiyi, said the views of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) and the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) exemplified his position and that of the RCCG.
The one-time President of PFN noted that the aforementioned Christian bodies had earlier spoken on the issues of kidnapping, killing of Christians, herdsmen attacks and general insecurity in Nigeria and that his position and that of the RCCG was not different from their expressed concerns.
However, as a spiritual father to millions of people in Nigeria and across the world, he said he regularly leads the congregation to pray over the problems confronting the nation at all major programmes of his Church.
“To be quiet does not mean that you are silent, I have made my views on the issues known to all the relevant authorities. He added that that very soon, Nigerians shall see that God answers prayers,” he said.
