The General Overseer of Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, on Friday said he does not trust politicians according to Tell magazine.
The respected cleric made this statement at the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State, during a two-day interdenominational prayer meeting. According to him, politicians in most cases hardly fulfil their promises.
Adeboye justified his position by giving an illustration that could be considered racist and anti-Semitic in other parts of the world.
It’s the story of three travellers – an Indian, a Jew and a politician.

“I don’t trust politicians; politicians are liars. They don’t fulfil most of their promises. A politician can tell you that they will give all of you (students) chicken each, which we all know it is impossible,” Adeboye said.
Pastor Adeboye, who is the General Overseer of Prof. Yemi Osinbajo (SAN), a Reedemed Christian Church of God pastor and the vice-presidential candidate for the All Progressives Congress, asked Nigerian to stop worrying themselves about who would emerge winner in the next election.
He explained that God is a “master planner,” who already planned the leadership development of Nigeria.
He added, “Stop disturbing yourself about who will be the President of Nigeria. God has already planned who will be the President of Nigeria. God has already planned that before we were born. God is not like human beings, who doubts what is to be done. He has plan for everything.”
Vice-Chancellor of OAU, Prof. Bamitale Omole, commended Adeboye for his yearly presence in the university, saying his divine intervention were having positive impacts in the school.
“We appreciate the love of Pastor Adeboye. With God and his presence last year, we had no calamities and also emerged as the best university in Nigeria. I urge students to be prayerful and cautious of what they do as God will continue to protect us,” he added.
