The Aareonakakanfo of Yorubalandland, Gani Adams, yesterday, said leadership, not religion is Nigeria’s problem, noting that no religion tolerates the killings by Boko Haram.
Adams, who spoke at the National Headquarters of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, (Throne of Grace), Redemption Way, Ebute Metta, Lagos, said religion is all about faith, saying although he is a Muslim by birth, he is thoroughly deep in Christian and traditional religions.
He said: “It is sad that many people believe religion is Nigeria’s problem, but in truth, leadership, not religion is Nigeria’s problem. For instance, I am a Muslim by birth, I grew up in a Christian background and as the Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland and culture activist, I also believe in our traditional religion.
“Therefore, coming to the Redeemed Christian Church of God headquarters today is a pleasure, and one needs to appreciate God for the life of the General Overseer worldwide for keeping faith with God for over 40 years, with branches in over 200 countries across the world.”
In his sermon, General Overseer Redeemed Christian Church of God, Worldwide, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, urged all Christians to strengthen their faith, saying there is always a storm in the lives of believers.
He said: “When a day breaks, there must be night. In heaven, there is no night. Whenever you find yourself in the night season, talk to the Lord. He will restore your life. Weeping may be long for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. In your homes, there will always be Joy.”
The Aare Onakakanfo came alongside his wife, Ayinba Mojisola, with others including two traditional rulers, Chief Jimoh Adebayo, Baale Imedu-Nla, Mowe Town, Chief Olufemi Bolaji Thomas-Jaji, Baale of Alade/Allen community, Ikeja, Osi and Asoju Aareonakakanfo of Yorubaland, Chiefs Gani Balogun, and Yinka Oguntimehin.
