The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG)’s General Overseer, Pastor Enoch Adeboye has lambasted the planned redesign of the N200, N500, and N1,000 Nigerian banknotes by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.
The Central Bank of Nigeria -CBN’s Governor, Godwin Emefiele announced the redesigning of the Naira notes, adding that the new notes would be in circulation by December 5, 2022.
Reacting to this news, as several other prominent Nigerians had, Pastor Adeboye lamented that the country’s situation has really worsened to the extent that the country’s currency was no longer worth the paper it will be printed on.
Pastor Adeboye had made this known during the church’s November Holy Ghost Service with the theme, ‘Let It Rain’.
“And while the citizens are hungry, trying to find enough money to buy bread to eat, our bosses are thinking of making the naira more beautiful, even if it can’t buy bread, at least, it will look beautiful. Oh Lord, have mercy.” The octogenarian had remarked, at the program held at the RCCG’s international headquarters along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
Adeboye then told the congregation that God had yet to tell him if there would be an election in Nigeria, in 2023.
