Adeboye empowers leaders for good governance
Following the non-violence elections and peaceful transition that took place in the country, the General Overseer, the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye has embarked on the empowerment of leaders to give Nigerians good governance.
At a press conference held at the headquarters of RCCG, The Throne of Grace, Ebute-Metta, Lagos, it was announced that a special service, which would be presided over by Adeboye would take place on Sunday, June 7, 2015 at 8am at The Throne of Grace, Ebute-Metta, Lagos, to offer prayer for leaders for the task of leading Nigerians to greater heights.
Adeboye was represented at the conference by his Special Assistant on Administration and Personnel matters and Pastor in charge of the headquarters, Johnson Odesola.
According to Adeboye, RCCG by the special grace of God is reckoned as one of the fastest growing Churches in the body of the invisible Church, if not the fastest growing Church in the world today and as such, the organisation is concerned about the status of the largest country in Africa for her to stand tall in the continent as well as occupy her position in the comity of nations.
The Cleric added that for the nation to set the pace in the continent the leaders have a lot of role to play, hence this special service designed to offer special prayer for leaders and emerging leaders.
“Without any doubt, leadership is inevitably critical to the success of any enterprise or nation, meaning that the growth and stability of a country depend on the type of leaders that are in charge.
“Failure of past leaders can be hinged on ineffectiveness of the leaders that were on ground and the fact that Nigerians too have not given the right attention to the importance of equipping their leaders with prayers.
“Leaders can only succeed when the Ultimate Leader, The Almighty God is involved, performing the role of leadership through them as they become His veritable vessels of honour. “Therefore, the prayer to be offered at the special service is to fully prepare the current leaders and those to emerge for the great task ahead,” he said.
Adeboye said Nigeria, as a nation, is in need of divine intervention due to the great challenges posed by insecurity, unemployment and lack of basic infrastructures.
According to him, based on the enormous resources at the country’s disposal, the challenges facing it are indeed not beyond her capacity as a nation but that the absence of good and effective leadership has been the undoing of us all and the reason for being behind those we are supposed to be ahead of.
“When leaders fail, everyone suffers and when they succeed, the nation rejoices. Therefore, at a time like this, when people are highly expectant, only the help of God can enable the leadership meet the yearnings of the people with a view to seeing new Nigeria evolving,” he said.
Present at the conference were Head, event mobilization and Assistant Pastor in Charge of Province 40, Pastor Goke Aniyeloye, Pastor Femi Olunuga, Pastor Kurchi Jonathan, Pastor Seun Adebayo, Pastor Bisi Akande, Pastor Emmanuel and Pastor Juwon and others.
