Pastor Adeboye Visits Fayemi, Condemns Attacks On Monarchs
General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Pastor Enoch Adeboye has condemned the recent attacks on monarchs in Ekiti state by gunmen.
The cleric, who spoke in Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti state capital on Saturday when he visited Governor Kayode Fayemi, said traditional institution deserved respect because of the critical roles it plays in the society.
“It is condemnable the flagrant disrespect to our traditional institutions in Ekiti state in recent time by gunmen,” he said.
The cleric was speaking against the backdrop of attacks on two monarchs by gunmen suspected to be kidnappers in the state in the last ten days.
He urged residents to sustain prayers for the country to survive the problems confronting it, saying “I have committed myself in fighting the battle for the soul of the nation spiritually.”
Adeboye, who was in the state to ordain about 1000 pastors, said leaders across political divides must not relegate God to the background in their activities and policies in the interest of the citizens.
The General Overseer, who revealed that his grandmother was from Ekiti, said God will halt the reign of terror and violence in the country, assuring that every tree that the Lord had not planted would be uprooted.
Fayemi, while expressing delight for the visit to the Government House by the renowned cleric, commended him for his prayers and efforts towards the development and progress of the country.
“We need prayers, we need a lot of help, our people are very very prayerful, and we know the development RCCG has witnessed under your leadership, particularly in our own setting here.
“We pray that God will continue to be good to us and heal the land and in a moment, all of us will have testimony to the good works of the Lord,” Fayemi said.
