Pastor Adeboye hits FG,condemns border closure,VAT increment

By Bukola Olasanmi

General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God, (RCCG) Pastor Enoch Adeboye has kicked against the proposed increase of VAT from 5 percent to 7.5 percent by the federal government.

The proposal, he said, will further increase the burdens on Nigerians.

Adeboye also said the proposed reintroduction of toll gates on federal government was insensitive.

The plan, he said, shouldn’t be considered at a time most federal roads were in pitiable conditions.

The federal government, as far as Adeboye is concerned, should    refocus its plans and programmes toward initiatives that would lessen the suffering and burdens of Nigerians.

He spoke at the Special Independence Day Celebration of the church at its headquarters, RCCG, Throne of Grace, Ebute-Metta, Lagos.

The programme tagged Arise attracted worshippers and traditional rulers led by the Alake and Paramount ruler of Egbaland, His royal highness, Oba Adedotun Gbadebo.

He further pointed out the closure of borders to importation of rice was ill-conceived because it has made the stable unavailable to most Nigerians.

Adeboye said as the country celebrates at 59, the federal government should henceforth focus on initiating policies that would lessen the sufferings and burdens of Nigerians.

Such policies, he said, should have the capability to move the country out of doldrums, make her arise and pitch her tent with comity of nations.
