The General Overseer of Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has urged Nigerians to ensure that they get their voters’ card to enable them exercise their civic responsibilities during next year’s general elections.
The voters’ card, he said, is the only power the people have to vote in credible candidates.
The general overseer spoke during the annual Holy Ghost Congress of RCCG with the theme “The Great Shepherd”.
Holding up his voter card and that of his wife, Pastor Folu, ‘Daddy G.O’, as he is fondly called, reminded the congregation that everyone is expected to collect and bring their cards to the church on the first Sunday of January for prayers.
He also announced that the January 2 Holy Ghost Congress will be entitled ‘The Burden Bearer’.
He noted: “It is very crucial you all get it even if it means spending the whole day at the local government because without the card, you cannot vote. On the first Sunday of next year, come to church with your voter card before we will pronounce the New Year blessings on you”.
The well respected pastor also called for donation of relief materials of food and clothings for thousands, who have been displaced from their homes due to insurgency in the North East region.
Adebayo urged, “Let us all contribute to make life comfortable for those people. All proceeds will be passed to the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and from there will be passed to those in need”.
The event was attended by Togo’s Minister of Justice, Esan Kofi; Nigeria’s Minister for Sports, Tamuno Danagogo; Deputy Governor of Lagos State, Mrs. Adejoke Orelope-Adefulire and her Kogi State counterpart, Arc. Yomi Awoniyi; First Lady of Benue State, Mrs. Doorshima Yemisi Suswam and her Lagos State counterpart, Dame Abimbola Fashola.
