The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye and wife, Folu, have paid a visit to Benue state.
The revered preacher landed the Military airport in Makurdi, the Benue state capital, today as approved by the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Nigeria through his Chief of Defense Staff.
Adeboye noted that he would have loved to visit earlier but God instructed him not to visit until the President had visited the state.
He met with the people of the state as he sympathized with them over recent killings that have plagued the state.
Pastor Adeboye noted that he was not in the state to make any political statement rather he was disturbed by the constant killings and mass burials in the state.
Giving more details about the visit, Stealth scouts on Facebook wrote:
“PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE went to state house to meet the people of Benue, pray for them and sympathize with them on the recent attacks in the state.
“The Governor, Samuel Ortom in his remarks mentioned he has being pleading for PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE’s visit to the state, he further mentioned that the government of Benue has over 2000 IDPs they are currently taking care of and they are ready to keep showing love to the people.
He further pleaded for support from both spiritual and government rulers.
“PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE in his own remarks reemphasized he is not a politician and he is not in Makurdi to make any political statement.
“His visit is primarily because he can’t hear his sons and daughters are in trouble and not pay them a visit.
“He said no true man of God can see the mass burials that followed the attack and not feel the pain. Some of the people buried are church members and others are souls that could have been won for Christ because you can’t convert a dead person.
“He said he waited this long because the Lord told him until the president visits he can’t go ahead of him.
“He reminded the people of the scripture “The strong prepares for the day of battle but safety is of the Lord”.
“The politicians have done their own but it’s now time for family matters.
“PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE reemphasized the support of himself, his wife and the entire RCCG for Governor Ortom and indeed the people of Benue.
“He concluded by encouraging them that God can turn all of these crisis around.”
