Prayers won’t make up for financial hardship, argues PDP leader in response to Pastor Adeboye

Posted by

Chief Sunny Onuesoke, a prominent member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Delta State, has refuted the assertion made by Pastor Enoch Adeboye, General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), that spiritual issues are the root of Nigeria’s problems.

In response to the cleric’s assertion, Onuesoke emphasized that the nation’s “economic hardship” could not be solved by prayer.

In a conversation with a twiscoloaded writer in Warri, Delta State, Onuesoke made the claim.

The environmentalist Onuesoke continued, saying that the country’s economic issues could only be resolved by a planned system with sound governance.

He emphasized that political solutions, not prayers, are what Nigeria needs to overcome its current problems.

The leader of the Delta PDP pleaded on President Bola Tinubu to wake up and save Nigerians from extreme poverty, hyperinflation, and starvation.

Onuesoke’s response follows human rights attorney Malcom Omirhobo’s criticism of the cleric on the same matter.

The attorney had made the point that political figures, such as Tinubu and the governors, were chosen to improve Nigeria, not to turn to prayer for help.

“It is the responsibility of Tinubu and the governors to fix Nigeria, not to use prayer as a stand-in for government.”

Adeboye was warned by Omirhobo not to mislead the public by blaming Nigeria’s problems on spiritual issues.

He contended that if prayer was the answer, then Adeboye’s fasting and prayers would have taken care of the problems facing the country long ago.

The issues facing our country are not spiritual, but rather political insufficiencies. Rather than using prayer as a magic bullet, it is time to face reality and demand responsible governance, the attorney stated.

Recall that Adeboye, who was welcomed by Kaduna State Governor Uba Sani on Sunday, had advised Nigerians to turn to prayer and fasting, highlighting the necessity of spiritual intervention to alleviate the country’s economic woes.

“It has become increasingly evident to us that the issue our country is facing goes beyond just politics,” he stated. We will need to apply some spiritual solutions to our concerns.

Then we discovered that you call on the Almighty to address difficulties that are beyond the scope of human knowledge. He is referred to as Almighty because of His ability to resolve any issue.
