In light of the growing cost of living in Nigeria under President Bola Ahmed Tinubu‘s administration, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the general overseer (GO) of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), has stated that spiritual remedies are needed to address the issues facing the country.
As part of a two-day RCCG-organized “National light up crusade” in the state, Adeboye reportedly made this claim on Sunday, February 11, during a courtesy visit to Kaduna State Governor Uba Sani, according to The Cable.
Despite confronting several issues, the esteemed clergy stated that Nigeria is still endowed with natural riches, intelligence, and manpower.
According to the Daily Trust story, Adeboye stated that the outreach was an attempt to keep people’s hope alive, pointing out that the church has been pleading with God to intervene on behalf of the nation.
This occurred a few days after young people in Osun state organised a nonviolent demonstration in the state capital, Osogbo, to voice their displeasure with the challenging economic climate and to declare their opposition to “renewed hardship”.
The protesters demanded that President Tinubu step in right away.
Speaking to the protesters, Waheed Lawal, the chairman of the Osun Civil Societies Coalition, stated that the suffering is not the renewed hope that President Tinubu had given Nigerians during the campaign.
