The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) General Overseer, Pastor E.A Adeboye, has reacted to rumours flying around town that he has become a politician.
According to the prominent pastor, God has called him to be a pastor and not a politician.
He disclosed this at the April Thanksgiving Service on Sunday, April 3rd, 2022.
He said; “I am a pastor, I am not even a prophet. I hear God once in a while. My assignment has nothing to do with partisan politics. Don’t distract my attention.”
“I have never said to my members this is the political party you must belong to. In Redeem Church every party is well represented.”
“The only reason I have never voted is because if I vote for anyone I will be unjust to any of my children. I am the father of all.”
“All I am saying as a Nigerian is that you must cast your vote. You have a duty as a Nigerian to register, vote and make your vote count. You cannot sit down, fold your arms and refused to vote and then complain about the government.”
“You must register, you must vote, you must sit after you have voted and make sure the votes are well counted. Make sure there is no rigging.”
“I know some people want to distract my attention. My assignment is to pray.”
“The reason why I am not a politician is because I pray for every candidate that comes to me for prayer that the will of God will be done.”
“Interestingly witches are interested in politics. Then, should Christians go to sleep.”
