The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, today paid a visit to President Muhammadu Buhari, at the State House in Abuja.
This was announced in a tweet by Bashir Ahmad, the President’s Personal Assistant on New Media, on Monday afternoon.
“President @MBuhari receives in audience General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (@rccghq), @PastorEAAdeboye, at the State House, Abuja,” Ahmad tweeted.
The purpose of Adeboye’s visit was not yet known as of the time of filing this report but there are various reasons that could be associated with this visit.
You would recall that Christian leaders across the country had condemned the new CAMA bill signed into law by Buhari.
The church has accused the government of attempting to take over the operations of the church.

It would also be recalled that few months ago, the 78-year-old cleric advised the government to include religious leaders in committees that deal with pandemics or outbreaks such as COVID-19.
“I believe that the return journey to normalcy has started. The return journey to normalcy might not be very rapid or sudden; it might be gradual but it will be steady. I sincerely hope that when the battle is over, we will remember to give all the glory to God.
“We thank God for the government and the efforts made. I believe they have done creditably well because they have had to deal with a situation they have probably not dealt with before.
“I will humbly suggest as an ordinary Nigerian that may be in the future, they will include in all their committees, men of God. I am not talking about some small boys like myself but some Chief Imams, Archbishops so that they can help them with the spiritual aspects of this warfare.
“I sincerely do hope also that we will all admit that it is not our wisdom, planning or abilities that have given us whatever victory we have gotten. We need to return all the glory to God because we don’t want a relapse of this scourge,” Adeboye had said.
