The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor E. A. Adeboye, has said that the fact that he is quiet, does not mean he is silent on national issues.

Adeboye, in a statement signed by the Public Relations Officer of the church, Olaitan Olubiyi, explained that there are different ways of responding to issues affecting the country.

The reverred cleric was reacting to a protest staged at the Redemption Camp on Monday.

Charlyboy, Eederis Abdulkareem, etc. are some of those who marched in protest, accusing Adeboye of being silent on insecurity in Nigeria.

But Adeboye made it clear that he is committed to the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), who are mandated to speak on issues affecting the church and the nation.

Quote
“The aforementioned Christian bodies had spoken on the issues of kidnapping, killing of Christians, herdsmen attacks and general insecurity in Nigeria and his position and that of the RCCG was not different from their expressed views.

“Adeboye who said that, to be quiet does not mean that you are silent, disclosed that he had made his views on the issues known to all the relevant authorities. He declared that very soon, Nigerians shall see that God answers prayers. He enjoined all to remain calm and maintain the peace.

“The RCCG leader had always called the congregation to prayers against kidnapping, bloodshed and general insecurity at the monthly all-night Holy Ghost Service held at the Redemption Camp.

“Pastor Adeboye led the congregation in supplication for God’s mercy on Nigeria after speaking on the negative consequences of bloodshed and inhumanity,”
the statement read.
