Adeboye who is the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, not comfortable with the current situation in Nigeria, noted that there was need to restore peace in Nigeria adding that peace is the absence of war, the absence of storm, peace refers to a permanent one.
Adeboye made this disclosure on Sunday during its monthly thanksgiving service, which also commemorates Nigeria’s 62nd independence and is monitored by our correspondent.
The clergyman was delivering a sermon titled, ‘Perfect peace in the land’, from II Chronicles 7: 13-14.
He noted that storms were in categories. According to him, times have gone by when traditional rulers were deified, and accorded respect, adding that currently they were arbitrarily kidnapped.

While Prophesying the end in sight, Adeboye, stressed that God would bring an ultimate end, “What kings, soldiers can’t do, the Almighty God will do for you,” he added.
