The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has expressed worries over the possibility of the 2023 election holding, saying God has not told him if the 2023 general election would hold.
Speaking during the RCCG’s 2022 Holy Ghost Service, Adeboye said “God must be merciful unto us. We will have to hold on to Him and say, ‘Please help.’ Do you know that up till now, and this is November, Daddy hasn’t told me yet that there’s going to be an election next year.”
“We continue of course, as if there’s going to be; I am saying that Adeboye, I am not talking of other people; God has not told me yet. He may tell me tomorrow, I don’t know, but as of this moment that I am sitting before you, He hasn’t told me whether or not there will be an election next year.”
“Of course, as usual, anybody who comes to me and he says, “pray for me,” I will pray for them. That’s my duty, but it is up to God to answer.”
“I am not trying to frighten you; I am not telling you that I know something secret that you don’t know; I am not a prophet I am just a pastor; but I am your Pastor. We need to pray. So I expect to see all of you on Friday the 2nd of December; come ready to pray.”
While also reacting to the redesigning of the naira by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Adeboye lamented the depreciation in the value of the Naira, noting that Nigeria’s situation has become worse to the extent that the country’s currency is no longer worth the paper it’s printed on.
Recall that the CBN Governor, Godwin Emefiele, had recently announced the redesigning of N100, N200, N500, and N1000 notes, adding that the redesigned naira notes would be released on December 5.
Reacting to the move by the CBN, Adeboye said “We need to ask God for mercy because what’s going on in our country, it doesn’t even make sense anymore.”
“Our Naira now is not even worth the paper it is printed on. While people are hungry, trying to find enough money to buy bread to eat our Moses are thinking of making the Naira more beautiful that is, even if it can’t buy bread, at least it will look beautiful.”
