Insecurity: Situation has gone from bad to worse- Adeboye


General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has joined other Nigerians to voice out against the rising rate of insecurity in the country, saying that no one is safe.

The highly respected Christian cleric made this remark , at the Ebute-Metta, Lagos headquarters of the Church,with the topic ‘Perfect Peace in the Land’

According to him, the rate of insecurity have  gone from bad to worse, such that even monarchs are now being kidnapped by bandits

He added that for the menace to stop the citizens should go back to God  and pray for His reign over the country.

According to him, the sharp rise in the price of food and cost of living is also worrisome calling on Nigerians to Nigerians to pray for good leadership.

“A whole nation can be in a storm. If a governor cannot go to his farm and feel safe, despite the security guards, he has to thank God that he returned safely, despite the bodyguard. For that matter, a governor. When we talk about security, the governor should be secured. When a governor utters such a statement, then you know the situation we are in.

“As young as I am, I remember a time when the king was coming. Unless you are one of the very special people, you have to move out of the way. But things are different now. Kidnappers can go to the palace and kidnap the king. Don’t let anybody deceive you; we are in a war.”

Turning to scriptures, he said: “He said in His word that if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and I will forgive their sin and heal their land.

“We need to keep praying for our leaders. The hearts of kings and rulers are in the hand of God. We need to pray to God to touch their hearts so that we can enjoy ourselves. It doesn’t matter how much they are selling bread, there will always be bread in Aso Rock, and irrespective of the epileptic power supply, Aso Rock will always have light.

“Why we are not enjoying is because we refuse to do our duty. If you say the wicked are ruling, why not pray that God should touch their hearts? We need to pray that God should lead our leaders right,” he said.
