Adeboye holds closed door meeting with president Buhari in Aso Rock
Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, on Monday, visited President Muhammadu Buhari at the State House in Abuja.
Bashir Ahmad, Buhari’s Personal Assistant on New Media, made this known in a Twitter post on Monday afternoon.
“President @MBuhari receives in audience General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (@rccghq), @PastorEAAdeboye, at the State House, Abuja,” Ahmad wrote.
Details of the meeting were not made public as the meeting was held behind closed doors.
The meeting is coming on the heels of the ongoing protest by a section of the religious bodies over the Companies and Allied Matters CAMA, Acts, 2020, which was recently signed by the President.
Pastor Adeboye had advised governments across the world to include religious leaders in COVID-19 committees so as to help with the spiritual aspect of the fight against the pandemic.
“I believe that the return journey to normalcy has started, might not be very rapid or sudden; it might be gradual but it will be steady. I sincerely hope that when the battle is over, we will remember to give all the glory to God.
“We thank God for the government and the efforts made. I believe they have done creditably well because they have had to deal with a situation they have probably not dealt with before.
“I will humbly suggest as an ordinary Nigerian that may be in the future, they will include in all their committees, men of God. I am not talking about some small boys like myself but some Chief Imams, Archbishops so that they can help them with the spiritual aspects of this warfare.
“I sincerely do hope also that we will all admit that it is not our wisdom, planning or abilities that have given us whatever victory we have gotten. We need to return all the glory to God because we don’t want a relapse of this scourge,” Adeboye said.
