The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has disclosed that he is yet to hear from God about the 2023 elections. In a report, the 80-year-old cleric was said to have told his congregants that he doesn’t know whether there will be an election in 2023 yet.
Speaking on Sunday, April 3, at the monthly Thanksgiving Service of the Church, the man of God said the case was different during the last elections. According to him, God spoke to him more than a year before the 2019 elections but that of 2023 seems to be different. Adeboye was quick to add that though he has not heard from God, He might still speak to him about the 2023 general elections.
He said: “As I am standing before you, I still don’t know whether there will be an election next year. “Don’t say that Pastor Adeboye said there will be no election next year. That’s not what I’m saying. I’m saying I don’t know yet. I don’t know because my father hasn’t talked to me about it at all.”
The cleric noted that he will never be a politician as politics was not his calling. He added that he did not have any preferred candidate nor does he support any presidential aspirant ahead of the 2023 general elections.
According to him, he had to clear the air following criticisms against the church’s creation of a Politics Directorate and the instruction to members to be politically involved in the 2023 electioneering process.Adeboye told his members that he was more about the killings in Kaduna, Nigeria’s depressing debt profile and other current national problems plaguing the nation.
