- Pastor Adeboye has urged traditional rulers to take their rightful position in politics and governance
- The man of God said traditional leaders must begin to unite and speak against the ills in the society
-He also accused politicians of trampling on the authorities of the traditional rulers in Nigeria
The general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Enoch Adeboye, has called on all traditional leaders across Nigeria never to all politicians override their positions.
Adeboye while speaking at the 66th annual convention of the RCCG on Saturday, August 18, morning said the traditional leaders must begin to unite and speak against the ills in the society.
Vanguard reports that the preacher said Nigerian politicians have eroded the authority of the royal fathers.
He said before the colonisation by the British, the royal fathers owned the land but now the royal fathers no longer have a voice when there was a House of Chiefs.
Adeboye said: “Don’t let the people tell me that we don’t know how to rule, because the royal fathers ruled our people before the white men arrived our shores."
He said any form of government that would want to rule and leave out the royal fathers is completely unacceptable.
“There was a House of Chiefs; but it’s not there anymore and we didn’t say a word,” he stated, noting that whatever you allow on earth will be allowed in heaven, and whatever you disallow on earth will be disallowed in heaven," the RCCG general overseers said.
"I think we have allowed too many things we should not have allowed. They will soon be coming to you to solicit for endorsement or support. We can tell politicians this is what we want and this is what must be done. Let us unite and come together as one.
You have your domain, I have mine. Let us come together and speak with one voice, they will listen and very soon, the royal fathers will have all their glory restored to them.
Please do not submit to forces that want to share your throne with you. God will take care of you. You must not allow any high priest to have dominion over your throne or businessmen to dictate how you run your throne,” he added.
