Aseese (Ogun) , Sept. 7, 2019
The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has appealed to Nigerians not to engage in reprisal attacks against South-Africans following the violence which trailed the wave of xenophobia in South Africa.
Adeboye made the appeal in his sermon on Friday night at the September Holy Ghost Service at the Redemption Camp on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
Adeboye stated that an average South-African is a decent person and urged those living close to them to protect them and show them love.
He likened the situation in South-Africa to the period of unrest in Nigerian universities in which only a handful of students usually engaged in trouble making.
According to the popular cleric, bringing Nigerians back home is not the solution to the problem, stressing that there are not enough jobs even for those who are in the country.
He urged Nigerians to allow the governments of Nigeria and South Africa to handle the issue.
“Let us leave this job to the governments. Let them solve this problem at the governmental level.
” Pray for them that God will give them wisdom, understanding and ability to do it,” he said.
There was an overwhelming support for Adeboye’s appeal when he called for a voice vote on the matter.
