Don’t be deceived, Nigeria in war situation — Adeboye

Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), has compared Nigeria’s security issues to war.

Adeboye spoke on Sunday during the 62nd anniversary celebration of Nigeria’s independence at his church’s regular thanksgiving service.

Peace, according to the cleric, is the absence of war and storm, and a perfect peace is one that lasts forever. His sermon was titled “Perfect peace in the land.”

He asserts that traditional rulers once received respect and adds that this is no longer the case as their palaces are raided and they are abducted.

He said, “A whole nation can be in a storm. If a governor cannot go to his farm and feel safe, despite the security guards, He has to thank God that he returned safely, despite the bodyguard. When we talk about security, the governor should be secure. When a governor alters such a statement, then you know the situation we are in.

“As young as I am, I remember a time when the king was coming. Unless you are one of the very special people, you have to move out of the way. But things are different now. Kidnappers can go to the palace and kidnap the king. Don’t let anybody deceive you, we are in a war situation.”

Additionally, Adeboye urged the populace to stop criticising their leaders and to instead pray for them.

He bemoaned the fact that condemnation had become the preferred course of action rather than praying for solutions.
