Is Covid-19 greater than God? - Nigerian woman asks Adeboye
- A concerned Christian, Princess Veronica Adegbite, is wondering why the RCCG overseer, Pastor Adeboye, has not launched spiritual warfare against Covid-19
- The Nigerian lady wondered if the donations clerics have been making are indirectly saying the virus is bigger than God
- Veronica also lamented the fact that the 14-day lockdown extension will affect her finances
It is no news that religious leaders in Nigerian have joined the discourse on the coronavirus outbreak in the country in various ways.
While there are differing opinions on what could have caused the outbreak, some Nigerian clerics have in their own way made donations to lighten the plight of the masses.
In a message sent to Legit.ng, a Nigerian with the name Princess Veronica Adegbite wrote an open letter to the general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye.
Veronica said that she has noticed that Christians have not been united in the country, saying churches are only concerned about their individual members.
She asked why Adeoboye has not come out to declare a total war against the pandemic, recalling how he organized a road walk months ago to protest the killings of Nigerians.
“…up till now I have not seen any national broadcast mandating or declaring national fasting and prayer for every Christians to participate. Are we saying that COVID-19 is greater than our Almighty God,” she said.
The Nigerian also faulted donations Christian heads have been giving towards providing a palliative against the virus.
“…I learnt that you and other Christian heads are giving donation and bed. Are we saying we want COVID-19 to increase? For the first time in history, we could not celebrate Easter. Daddy, please we need to do something,” she said.
She also wondered how a single mother like her would survive another economic harshness with the extended lockdown.
Veronica asked the man of God to make a move concerning the situation, asking him to let the world know “our God is alive” like he “he preached on Sunday”.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a newborn in Saharanpur, Uttar Pradesh in India was christened Sanitiser by his parents in a way that archives the trying time the world is in.
When speaking with the media, Omveer, the baby’s father, said that he was impressed by the measure the government has taken to contain coronavirus in the country.
