Oby Ezekwesili reacts to Pastor Adeboye’s ‘Tinubu will fix Nigeria’ statement

By paulcraft

Oby Ezekwesili, former Minister of Education and World Bank Vice President (Africa) has denied reports that Pastor Enoch Adeboye, general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), said President-elect Bola Tinubu would fix Nigeria.

According to several online reports, Adeboye made the statement on Sunday during the monthly thanksgiving service at the RCCG branch in Ebute-Metta.

Pastor Dele Balogun, the cleric’s special assistant, was said to have represented him.

Mrs. Ezekwesili, on the other hand, stressed in a tweet on Tuesday that Adeboye delivered a sermon on Sunday and never mentioned Tinubu.

We @rccghq hold a joint Monthly Thanksgiving Service on First Sundays during which all our Parishes join up online for sermon by Pastor @PastorEAAdeboye. We had the May one on Sunday 7th.

Pastor Adeboye never said the lies these newspapers have widely spread. Please ignore, she wrote.

Ezekwesili, an RCCG pastor who recently turned 60, called out several media outlets on Twitter to remove the reports.
