God has not spoken to me about 2023 election – Adeboye

Pastor Enoch Adeboye

General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Pastor Enoch Adeboye says God has not spoken to him about the 2023 election in Nigeria.

The 80-year-old said this on Sunday at the monthly Thanksgiving Service of his church.

According to him, while God spoke to him about the 2019 election more than a year before the exercise, he has not received such revelation about the 2023 election.

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, who has begun moves to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari next year, is a senior pastor in RCCG.

Pointing out that politics is not his calling, Adeboye said that he does not support any presidential aspirant.

His words: “Listen to me carefully and if you are going to quote me, quote me correctly. I am talking to those of you who are my children. Do you want to know the truth? And nothing but the truth? I am talking of myself now.

“As of now, as I am standing before you, I still don’t know whether or not there would be an election next year. Don’t say that Pastor Adeboye said there would be no election next year; that’s not what I said. Adeboye does not know yet, put the word ‘yet’.

“How come you don’t know? Because my father has not talked to me about it yet. The last time we had an election, He (God) spoke to me about the election by June of the previous year and this is April. So, it is not late but He hasn’t told me yet.”
