*Pastor Adeboye asks nation’s leaders to fear God

The Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, has created eight new Provinces just as the Pastor-In-Charge of Ogun Region 12, Pastor Julius Olalekan, counselled Nigerians to draw closer to God to end the current challenges facing the country.

Olalekan made the charge at the dedication of one of the three provincial headquarters approved for Ogun State at Mowe.
“Our leaders should have the fear of God in them,” he said, maintaining that if there is the fear of God in the hearts of the nation’s leaders, corruption will be removed from our hearts, “and we will not steal the tax payers’ money.”

The pastor, who dedicated the headquarters of the newly created Ogun Province 18 on behalf of the church’s General Overseer, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, said: “If we have the fear of God, it will be the beginning of wisdom; once there is the fear of God, the wisdom to excel, good governance and good leadership will come automatically.”

The current APC government, according to him, should pay attention to the plight of the citizens, stressing that the earlier they do that, the better because if they allow things to degenerate further, it will amount to a lot of losses. Also speaking, the newly inaugurated Pastor-In-Charge of Ogun Province 18, Pastor Lawrence Olunifesi, said Nigeria was endowed with so much resources.

“So far God has not failed Nigeria over time, we have mismanaged our God given resources. We have been complacent, we have opportunity to have expanded, we have opportunity to become a producing country. We have so much depended on oil revenue alone, but the Church is praying hard that Nigeria will recover from its current challenges, and there will be reduction in poverty”, he said.
