First and foremost, I am not a member of ANY RCCG parish, neither have I worshiped in any of them except on my spiritual visitation to the Redemption Camp in December 2012 where my good friend too was in attendance, President Goodluck Jonathan GCFR.
I am a trained Baptist clergy, and by His grace, I believe in respect for elders as been supported by the most precious living book on earth – Holy Bible. And many cultures and traditions too supports the concept of respect to elders !
The said name in my caption is one Mr. Jide Awe, the present Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State, who at a time a sitting Court in Ekiti State ordered his arrest with other “culprits” in an alleged murder case !
The said man in December abused our very own daddy, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye. Sincerely, the abuse or insult should have being overlooked, but person like Jide Awe will not know the high level of foolishness he displayed in the public.
I have always advocates that matured persons should be at the helm of our affairs, not brat administering our political entity. Of a truth, Jide Awe need cautioning !
Baba Adeboye went on Mission visits to Ekiti State, and he was welcomed by the very good friend of Mr. Buhari, GCFR in person of Mr. Ayo Fayose and the Ewi of Ado Ekiti, Oba Rufus !
Baba in his humble way, prayed for the monarch and the Governor and other governors who were not even present.
See the prayers here…
“ We thank God for your courage , for
your boldness. We thank God for your
being willing to take risks so that your
people can be protected. You have
been a governor who knows when to
say ‘enough is enough ’ in defence of
his people. And I am sure you know
what I am talking about and I am sure
the world knows . I don ’t want to say
more than that but be assured that we
are praying for you and you will
succeed in Jesus name. We wish all
other governors who stand for their
people, who defend their people and
who know when to say ‘enough is
enough ’ , success. We thank God for
their life ”.
From that prayers, in what way did Baba Adeboye commit a crime?
But in response to the humble man of God, who was honored by Newsweek Magazine (USA) in 2009 as one of the 50 most powerful people on earth. Mr. Jide Awe alleged that Gov. Fayose bribed him to come praise him. He further said that Fayose is capable of bribing angels, and that Baba Adeboye should be cautioned.
This is silly of Mr. Jide Awe who in any means have nothing it takes to speak to Baba’s dog not to talk of baba in such manner. In fact, little did he know that there are some persons you don’t just talk to anyhow.
In my view, a mad dog will never near fire, how much more a living one. Mr. Awe is toiling with fire, and I weep for him. Baba’s pet is never his mate, not to speak of Baba himself. Sincerely, he needs to go back to history to go learn what culture says about respect !
Mr. Jide’s utterance is capable of causing more havoc on the falling ruling party. RCCG deserves apology from APC in all levels !
My friend, Goodluck Jonathan, Nigeria President Mr. Buhari, David Cameron and many dignitaries had at a time coveted Baba’s prayers, I suppose Awe need the other wise !
I will round off in this way, Awe, for the sake of his children should go tender an apology to Baba because God may visit his children because of this evil ! God’s servant are flames of fire !
Politics without sense is stupidity.
Our elders must be respected !
God bless Nigeria.
