Pastor Enoch Adeboye, General overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God(RCCG), visited President Muhammadu Buhari at the State house in Abuja, the capital, on Monday, August 31.
According to Globalgistng, this was announced by the special adviser to the President on media and advertising Femi Adesina on his Facebook page.
At the time of submission of this report, the details of the meeting were very sketchy.
Adeboye advised governments around the world to include religious leaders in COVID-19 committees to help with the spiritual aspect of the fight against the pandemic.
I believe that the return to normal life has already begun. The return to normal life may not be very rapid or sudden; it may be gradual, but it will be sustained. I sincerely hope that when the battle is over, we will not forget 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,” he had said.
Meanwhile, It was previously reported that Pastor Adeboye rejected the Companies and Allied Matters Act (CAMA) signed into law by President Buhari.
It was reported that the CAMA, which was signed into law by the president on August 7, has generated controversy in the last few weeks.
Adeboye’s position is not diametrically different from the stands of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN).
Section 839 of the CAMA gives a provision for religious bodies, non-governmental organisations and charity organisations to be regulated by the registrar of the Corporate Affairs Commission, (CAC), and a supervising minister.
The head of media and public relations of RCCG, Pastor Olaitan Olubiyi, said the church has aligned with the stands of CAN and PFN on CAMA.
In another report, Adeboye counted the blessings God gave the church during coronavirus lockdown at the ongoing 2020 Annual Convention on Monday, August 3.
The convention is holding online from the Redemption Camp situated along Lagos-Ibadan Expressway and streamed worldwide.
While referring to the theme of the programme titled Wonderful, a caption which was chosen in 2019 before the pandemic, the cleric said that the things that had happened since then showed that God was intentional about the theme.
