Pastor Adeboye In Kaduna Speaks Hope, Laments Suicide And ‘Japa’ Migration

General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, says Nigeria needs urgent spiritual help to overcome its current challenges.

Adeboye spoke in Kaduna on Sunday, February 11 while visiting the state’s Governor Uba Sani.

According to him, the challenges facing the country were more than political.

He said that political leaders appeared to have tried their humanly possible best, yet the problems persisted. “Nigeria needs the help of God and it needs the help urgently. We don’t want a situation where people begin to think of taking their own lives.”

Adeboye, said his tour of Nigeria, which brought him to Kaduna, was not just to organise crusades and pray for the people and Nigeria, but an opportunity to gather people together to let them know that, tomorrow is going to be alright if Nigerians can be a little more patient with God.

“I’m in Kaduna to pray for the people and give them hope,” he said. “I am delighted to be here again. I was here about two or so years ago with the former Governor; at that time, I came to pray for some of my members who were kidnapped and they were miraculously rescued. I came to encourage their families to let them know that all will be well.

“I have come again this time around because it has become more and clearer to us that, the problem our nation is facing is more than political. Our problems will require a bit of spiritual solution.

“We as a country are blessed; we are blessed with people with great intelligence, we are blessed with all manners of resources and yet we have so many problems.

“And it is not as if people in authority are not trying their best; they are doing as much as humanly possible. And then we found out that when you have problems that are beyond human ability to solve, you call on the Almighty. The reason we call Him Almighty is because He has the power to solve all problems.

“So, we have been going around in our little way to support the efforts of all the various governments and parastatals to call on the Almighty to come to our aid, because we need help. We need help and we need it urgently.

“Because, as much as our leaders are doing their very best to help us solve our problems, the problems seem to have persisted, and in some areas, the problems seem to be getting worse. But we trust in Almighty God that, these problems will not last forever. We trust God that the problem will even be over sooner than later.

“That is why we have been going round holding crusade and the crusade are just a means of gathering people together to let them know tomorrow is going to be alright if we can be a little more patient with God. We believe very strongly that people need this kind of encouragement so that they don’t lose hope.

“Because when they lose hope they do all kinds of strange things; many of our youths for example, are running out of the country, forgetting that those countries they are running to, also have their own problems and then those who cannot run anywhere, we don’t want a situation where people begin to think of taking their own lives.

“We have had quite a few examples of people driving in Lagos to the long bridge and jumping into the lagoons. Those of them that were rescued before they drowned said they couldn’t see a future, but we keep on assuring them God is on His throne and He is not going to forsake our nation.”
