General overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye has said the problems confronting Nigeria require spiritual solutions.
Adeboye spoke on Sunday during a courtesy visit to Uba Sani, governor of Kaduna, as part of a two-day RCCG- “National light up crusade” held in the state.
Adeboye said Nigeria remains a nation blessed with intelligence, manpower and natural resources despite facing different challenges.
He said the outreach was a way of encouraging the people not to lose hope, noting that the church has been on God to come to the aid of the country.
He also thanked the governor for providing logistic support towards the success of the crusade.
“I’m in Kaduna again as it has become clear that the problems our nation is facing is more than political and will require some spiritual solution,” Adeboye said.
“We have been going round in our way to support the efforts of governments, to call on the almighty to come to our aid as we need help.
“Holding crusades as a means to gather the people together to let them know tomorrow will be alright.
“We believe firmly that people need this kind of encouragement because when people lose hope, they do strange things.
“Youths are running away from Nigeria, and those who cannot run anywhere begin to think of taking their own lives.
“We would keep on assuring them that God will not forsake our nation and so we’ve been to several states and today we are in Kaduna for the two-day crusade at the stadium.”
On his part, the governor expressed happiness at the success of the crusade and the positive impact on the Christian faithful in the state.
Sani lauded the RCCG general overseer for his commitment to serving humanity.
He noted that some of the current socio-economic reforms that are being implemented by the federal government are crucial towards moving the nation forward.
“It is a rare honour and privilege to welcome our iconic evangelist pastor Enoch Adeboye to Sir Kashim Ibrahim House,” the governor said.
“From the academia to the pulpit, yours has been a life devoted to the service of life and humanity, you have touched lives too numerous to mention. You continue to mentor and inspire the young and old,” the governor said.
“Many Nigerians are losing hope and are being cautious about the future, as we are going through difficulties from the past.
“However, right now we have a president who is determined, focused and ready to take our country to higher heights. With your intervention and prayers, I believe that our president will certainly get it right.”
