…..prays for politicians for cash
The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State has described the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Pastor Enoch Adeboye as a fake, fortune seeking and an inconsistent political pastor who always pray for politicians for cash.
The party described Pastor Adeboye as a fortune seeking and fake pastor, asking; “Why are these fortune seeking pastors pretending to be winning souls for Christ when they are selfish traders who are busy exploiting the ignorance of worshippers? Instead of visiting the poor in prisons, our fake pastors visit corrupt politicians who have stolen
Pastor Adeboye had during his tour of the country to the state as part of the church’s annual ‘Let’s Go A Fishing” programme, said to Mr. Fayose: “We thank God for your courage, for your boldness, we thank God for your being willing to take risks so that your people can be protected. You have been a governor who knows when to say enough is enough in defence of his people. And I’m sure you know what I’m talking about and I am sure the world knows. I don’t want to say more than that but be assured that we are praying for you and you will succeed in Jesus name.”
The APC had through a statement issued on Sunday, by its State Chairman; Mr Jide Awe accused Pastor Adeboye of collecting millions of naira as bribe to commend Governor, Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti Sate, for his courage and willingness to defend his people and the cause of the common man in the country.
Yesterday, the party used a pseudonym, Pastor Julius Oluwafemi to write an article titled; “Pastor Adeboye’s Endorsement Of Gov. Ayo Fayose And Its Contradictions” published on Sahara Reporters to further launch attack on Pastor Adeboye and the RCCG.
The article was written by Mr Hakeem Jamiu, who was Senior Special Assistant on Research when Dr Kayode Fayemi was governor of Ekiti State.
The Sahara Reporters article read: “Instead of paying millions of naira to purchase political endorsement of religious leaders, Governor Fayose should realize that Pastor Adeboye is an inconsistent politician. Even though he supported and prayed in vain for the re-election of President Goodluck Jonathan he has since switched his alliance and loyalty to President Buhari.
“After all, he prays for the success of the Buhari regime on the ground that Professor Yemi Osinbajo, the Vice-President is a pastor within the RCCG fold. These days, he goes in and out of the presidential villa at Abuja to pray for President Buhari.”
The APC also went further to say that Pastor Adeboye, in asking other governors to emulate Governor Fayose was asking the governors to loot the treasury of their states.
They faulted Pastor Adeboye, asking whether he was asking other governors to hire and fund thugs?
“Is Pastor Adeboye asking other governors to travel to China to execute fake projects like the poultry scam?”
