Obasanjo Says Pastor Adeboye Has Influenced More Lives Than Politicians


Former president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo has described the Worldwide Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch A. Adeboye, fondly called Daddy G.O, as a man who has impacted more lives in the country more than politicians.

He stated this on Tuesday, at the public presentation of a book entitled: ‘Pastor E.A. Adeboye: His Life and Calling’ at the Auditorium of the RCCG Youth Centre, along the Lagos/Ibadan expressway, revealing how Adeboye personally influenced his life.

Obasanjo said, “As a politician, we are supposed to touch lives, but, for Pastor Adeboye, he has touched more lives than politicians. He has been a man of God with a difference, whom I benefited from personally when I was consulting to contest the 1999 election.”

He went on to state that the 40 authors said to have written the book was not enough “because we are still going to write the epilogue of Daddy and when we are going to do that, we are not going to be 40, but millions and I pray that you will be there to witness the epilogue of your life and calling”.

Speaking on the occasion, he disclosed that he “was told not to reveal my coming here by Mummy (Adeboye’s wife). How can I come to you without calling you? But, that was instruction. Until I am in this hall, I never see anything about this programme. That means we have committed sins by keeping this secret from you and we seek for forgiveness from you and I am sure we have been forgiven.”
