Ruga: Eedris Abdulkareem Protests At RCCG Camp, Insists Adeboye Must Take Stand / Daddy Freeze To Pastor Adeboye: "Pope Drinks Beer And Doesn't Pay Tithe" / CAN Protests Nigerian Participation In Islamic Sports (2) (3) (4)
|Direct Protests To Govt. Not Adeboye – CAN To Musicians by edunwablog: 5:46am On Jul 11|
Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has urged secular musicians who protested to the General Overseer of Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, to direct their future protests to the government.
The association made their position known in a statement issued on Wednesday in Abuja by its National Director, Legal and Public Affairs, Mr Samuel Vondip.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that some protesters, including Charly Boy, Idris Abdulkareem and Baba Fryo on Monday staged a peaceful protest at the RCCG Redemption Camp on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
The protesters called on Adeboye to speak up against what they termed the injustice in the country.
”While we appreciate the concern of the protesters over the issues they raised and the call for a better nation, we strongly believe that singling out one of our leaders and members, to say the least, is unfair.
”The entire exercise, in our view, was ill-motivated. The people who staged this insulting protest against a highly revered Servant of God in the person of Pastor Adeboye are totally ignorant of the operations of CAN.
”It needs to be known to all that Adebayo had addressed the press on several occasions, saying that as a ‘man under authority’, he cannot speak on issues that CAN or PFN have spoken about,” Vondip said.
He said that any protest against Adeboye would be viewed by CAN as a systematic insult against church leaders in Nigeria.
”Why should any group of people think that it is their right to protest and demand that Pastor Adeboye must speak on the issues they listed when CAN and PFN had spoken about them?
”On about three occasions, CAN had taken many of the issues raised by the protesters to President Muhammadu Buhari
”CAN had requested the government to do more to get the people in Boko Haram captivity released.
“We specifically mentioned the remaining Chibok girls, Leah Sharibu, Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, the Islamic preacher who is still kept in detention against the ruling of the court,” he said.
Vondip said that CAN had also spoken to those in government, especially the Christians among them who were members of the association, to speak for the oppressed in the country.
He added that they had been urged to defend their faith rather than explaining away evils in order to protect their jobs and daily bread.
The CAN national director also added that on some occasions, the association had written the National Assembly for their intervention.
”While we understand the frustration of those who organised the protest, we are against the method they adopted by directing their anger against an innocent man.
”Adeboye will never support oppression and he has been speaking against these evils in the land through CAN and, on several occasions, in his sermons.
”We further urge those who protested to direct their future protests at those in government who should do more to free those who have been in captivity for no sins of theirs.
”They should direct their protest against the people in power to make the nation safer from the attacks of herdsmen, kidnappers, ritual killers, armed robbers, armed bandits and Boko Haram terrorists.
”We have no gun to fight our battles except to speak out as we have been doing and never at the same time give up praying to God who can do all things,” he added.

The senseless protesters are agents of the devil. Very soon, the devil himself will use them for pepper soup. Daddy Adeboye has kept himself out of politics. Despite the fact that his godson Yemi Osinbajo contested, he(Adeboye) did not get involved in the game. This is unlike the Northern arm of CAN that collected 7 billion from Goatluck Jonathan and campaign for Goatluck on the pulpit. Daddy Adeboye is also unlike the numerous Southern Pastors that saw different visions all against Buhari and preached and lied against Buhari to their dummy followers.
For a man to win elections on two different occasions despite visions by several "men of God" including the one that carries the key to the gate of hell, I this shows that it is only God that appoints and anoints leaders and and Buhari is currently the anointed.

It should have been an appeal to Pastor Adeboye to intervene not an abusive kind of protest.
I am sure he is not docile about all these things and you cannot expect a spiritual state man of his status to be talking any how.

Most of these people are just working for devil indirectly, they get irritated with anything that is associated with church and christianity. With all the protests Charley boy and his colleaques had done in the past, help me ask them on what has come out of them that another person should join in their foolishness? Are they not the same set of people that have brought us into this kind of lawless society through their rubbish secular music. They recruit many touts indirectly through their songs and spoil society finish, they are now acting as saints now. If pastor Adeboye talks again now on the state of the nation, they will still be the ones to insult him to face his pupit and leave politics alone. They will twist and twist his word because they are too spiritually bankrupt to understand the things of the spirits. They are just out for eye service protest, police should get them arrested, they are all morally handicapped.

Adeboye once organized a protest against GEJ, for me I think the pastor is just being hypocritical because his member is the vp or he is afraid of buhari.

I blame the shenanigans on our abysmal level of education coz this is a matter of misplaced priority.
Nigerians are totally confused, they lack common sense. It's so disheartening to know that the so called graduates/educated ones constitute a big part of the protesters. They have forgotten the duties and responsibilities of the govt and they would rather protest against a clergyman for the woes of this motherfvckn shît-hole called Nigeria.
All the past Ministers of education & present one need to be flogged. The education sector needs a total overhaul.
