The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor E. A. Adeboye has said today that only God knows who will be Nigeria’s next president after the February 14 presidential election. He was present for this year's annual University Thanksgiving and New Year Revival at Obafemi Awolowo University organized by the Christian Mobilization Committee where he urged Nigerians to always pray that God's will be done.
Pastor Adeboye who spoke unapologetically emphasized that he does not like Politicians because of their untruthful attitude.
“I don’t like Politicians. Politicians will never tell you the truth. They will tell you what they will never do. You can quote me anywhere!”
“If I were to be a Politician, I would tell you that this coming Christmas, I will give you chicken which you know quite well I will not give”
Adeboye, who has kept his distance from making public statements on issues relating to the forthcoming general election could not but tell the crowd that the case of the next president of Nigeria is a done deal. He talked further about the election by citing an instance where he met with a highly-placed ambassador who requested to know his opinion about the political future of the country. “Do you know that if we talk more about Jesus than we do about politics, God will take care of politics? One top ambassador asked what my opinion is about what is going on, I said what do you mean? He said that he wanted to know what my opinion is. I said my opinion does not matter, because what God is going to do is what He will do.”
Adeboye said people waiting for his opinion concerning where the presidential pendulum would swing in February 14 needed not bother themselves, as his opinion did not matter, but that of God. “The case of the next president of Nigeria has been settled a very long time ago” he said.
Quoting from the scriptures, he reeled out about ten areas to include: Giving, Tithing, Purity, Transparency, Forgiveness, Love, Growth, and Evangelism, among others where Christians should ensure they walk with God.
It will be recalled that Pastor Adeboye, in his New Year prophecy to the nation, has said he would keep to himself what God told him what would characterize the political atmosphere of the year, but added that “By the end of the year (2015), many will say “all is well that ends well.”
