The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has passionately appealed to Nigerians not to partake in reprisal attacks against South-Africans after the violence which trailed the wave of xenophobia crisis in South Africa.
Pastor Adeboye made this appeal in his sermon which was delivered on Friday night at the September Holy Ghost Service at the Redemption Camp along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, 36Naija reports.
Pastor Adeboye stated that the average South African is a decent person. He also likened the situation in South Africa to the period of unrest in some Nigerian universities in which only a handful of students usually engaged in troublemaking.
According to the RCCG Senior Pastor, bringing Nigerians back home is not the solution to the problem.
He also urged Nigerians to allow the government to handle the issue.
“Let us leave this job to the government. Let them solve this problem at the governmental level.
” Pray for them that God will give them wisdom, understanding and ability to do it,” he said.
There was overwhelming support for Adeboye’s appeal when he called for a voice vote on the matter.
