With Prayers, Necessary Changes, Nigeria Would Overcome Its Problems – Adeboye


Abuja - Pastor Enoch Adeboye, General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God has called on Christians to continue to pray for peace to take centre stage in the country.


He made the call on Tuesday night at the 8th Edition of the monthly Divine Encounter in Abuja.

The General Overseer also urged the Christians not to treat words from God with levity, adding that ‘’a word from God is capable of altering a person’s destiny for good.’’

The Cleric, who made reference to Jacob in the Bible, explained that Jacob’s name was changed to Israel, meaning ‘’May God prevail” due to some circumstances he had with his brother.

``After the change of name, Israel became a great nation, the pastor said.”

He said that the current challenges in the country should not be seen as permanent, adding that with prayers and necessary changes, Nigeria would overcome its problems.

Adeboye assured Nigerians that ‘’one word from God can settle all issues of life’’ including the current challenges in the country.

``A word from God can begin a person’s journey to glory.”
Quoting Book of 2 kings, Chapter 4, verses eight to 17, in the story of the Shunammite woman, the cleric recalled that the word of God, through prophet Elisha, changed her destiny for good.

According to Adeboye, when God speaks to an individual, the manifestation of that word results into abundant supply.
``When God speaks, it is done”.
Adeboye, however, called on Christians to turn away from sin and embrace righteousness and holy living.

The Vice-president Yemi Osinbajo and his wife, Dolapo and Oby Ezekwesili, former Minister of Education were among prominent personalities that attended the programme.

Highlights at the event were prayer for the peace of Nigeria and for the release of Chibok girls.

Title-crazy civil servants to go

Title-crazy civil servants are scared of being sacked, The Nation learnt at the weekend. Officials, who violated the Public Service Rule banning titles until after retirement, may be retired in the coming civil service reforms.
Only those whose titles were traditionally inherited may be spared but their postings and conduct will be put under watch.
According to sources, the government is disturbed that most of the top civil servants with honorary awards actually bought them at high fees.
The affected civil servants violated the rules which grants them the right to such honors only after retirement.
Besides committing the resources of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAS) to such awards, most of the civil servants used the window to “grant favour to groups, persons, and communities in violation of their oath of office.”
