The General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God Worldwide, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has said replacing service chiefs is not the solution to the security challenges facing the country.
Adeboye spoke at the headquarters of RCCG, The Throne of Grace, Ebute-Metta, Lagos, during a Thanksgiving service with the theme, ‘Victory over marital storm’.
The cleric spoke to journalists after the service through the Assistant General Overseer, Administration and Personnel, RCCG, Pastor Johnson Odesola.
He said, “I believe the service chiefs are working and aside from those that have attained their retirement age, they have been studying the situation of the country in terms of security and would have some plans they are working on. If they are just changed, the new service chiefs would have to start all over again.
“I believe in good succession plan whereby those to replace the current service chiefs would learn from the incumbents and only need to continue from where they stop.”
The Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Chief Gani Adams, also attended the service.
He said the country would only make appreciable progress after getting it right in leadership.
Adams said religion should not be an issue in civil society, citing the United States of America with its population and diverse religions as an example.
He stated, “I am a Muslim by birth, but I came to worship in a church with my wife as I have worshipped in many churches. I enjoy every bit of the service led by a cleric that has been serving God for over 40 years. With the prayers following every problem he mentioned, it is a new turn in my life.”
