The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye has expressed uncertainty about the Nigeria and 2023 elections.
Adeboye who disclosed this while speaking on the topic ‘The Great Expectations’ said it was unsafe for anyone to say his ambition is to become president when the individual is unsure about tomorrow or the existence of the country.
He said, “This is 2021 some people are already getting ready to kill themselves over 2023. They don’t even know whether there will be 2023, they don’t even know whether they will still be around. There is nobody here who can say for sure that he will still be around by tomorrow. It is God who determines who will still be around by 2023.”
“Someone said to me sir, who do you think will be president in 2023, I said the president of where? He said the president of Nigeria. How are you sure there will be Nigeria in 2023? how are you sure? can you swear? I pray there will be Nigeria, so you don’t misquote me. But are you sure?” he added.
The 79 year old cleric further said, “My greatest expectation is that I will see you in heaven. The members of Redeemed will occupy a particular section that the angel will say you tried. Without holiness, there is no Heaven. Which Heaven are you going to?”
He however consoled those who lost their loved ones noting that it is easy for others to console the bereaved without feeling the impact.
He said, “It is easy to say you will see the person again because I have tasted it. I have the experience.”
