The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has paid a courtesy call on the governor of Kaduna State, Uba Sani, on Sunday.
The visit followed the successful completion of a 2-day national light-up crusade organised by the RCCG in Kaduna.
While receiving the Christian leader, Mr Sani commended the church for the positive impact of the crusades on Christian faithful in the state.
“It is a rare honour and privilege to welcome our iconic evangelist, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, to Sir Kashim Ibrahim House. From 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.
Speaking on the current economic hardship facing the country, the governor expressed optimism that the reforms introduced by the federal government would take Nigeria to greater heights.
“Many Nigerians are losing hope and are 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”, Mr Sani added.
In his remarks, Mr Adeboye highlighted that although Nigeria is currently battling several challenges, it remains a nation blessed with intelligence, manpower, and natural resources.
He also noted that the challenges facing the country require spiritual intervention.
“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 solutions.
“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 2-day crusade at the stadium.” Mr Adeboye said.
Representatives from the Redeemed Christian Church of God appreciated the Kaduna State Government for providing logistic support to ensure the smooth and safe running of the two-day crusade.
