COVID-19: Adeboye Advises Nigerians to Stay at Home

Nigerians have been advised by the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christan Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, to obey the lockdown order put in place by President, Muhammadu Buhari, as part of measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus pandemic in the country.

The cleric made the call during a sermon broadcasted online on Sunday.

Preaching on a topic tagged ‘Power’ with texts taken from Acts 1:4-8, he said “There are categories of power. There is political power. Ecclesiastes 8:4 says where the word of a king is, there is power. You put it in the modern language, where the word of the President is, there is power.

“If you don’t believe that, just check what is happening now. The President sits in his house and makes a decree or pronouncement, everybody stay at home, and if you love yourself, stay at home.”

Recall that the Federal Capital Territory Abuja as well as Lagos and Ogun States have been on lockdown since 11pm, March 30, following the President’s directive that residents of the state, excluding essential service providers, stay at home and observe social distancing.

Subsequently, some governors of the 28 states affected by the pandemic have also ordered lockdowns in their territories.
