VISITING Redeemed Christian Church of God general overseer Enoch Adeboye has prayed for peace to prevail in Zambia during the power transition.
“I would like to say that Zambia needs peace and we are going to pray that the prince of peace will grant abundant peace in this nation,” Pastro Adeboye said.
Pastor Adeboye said the clergy could guide and advise the Government on several issues without getting too close but it was up to the State to decide whether to accept the counsel.
Addressing Journalists at a media briefing in Lusaka yesterday, Pastor Adeboye observed that the atmosphere was usually tense during an election and that it was only God who could guarantee peace.
Pastor Adeboye observed that democracy was a wonderful form of governance but that it was unfortunate that it sometimes left God out.
“Democracy is a Government of the people, for the people by the people. In any situation in life where God is not prominently in charge there is bound to be problems,” he said.
There was need to put God first in whatever people did even if a democratic country.
The Nigerian Pastor also apologised to Journalists for the manner in which his ‘tight’ security detail handled them on his arrival at the Kenneth Kaunda International Airport.
He later prayed for Journalists upon request as well as other hangers-on who attended the media briefing at Hotel Inter-Continental.
While in Zambia, Pastor Adeboye is expected to hold the City Wide Gospel Crusade slated for Sunset Stadium in Lusaka today under the theme Jesus to be preceded by other meetings.
