The General Overseer, Redeem Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has described Governor Nasir El-Rufai as a tender-hearted man, who was misunderstood by many.
Pastor Adeboye who said this during a courtesy call on Gov. Nasir El-Rufai at Sir Kashim Ibrahim House on Tuesday in Kaduna however said he knows the kind person El-Rufai is.
“I know the kind of person you are, I know you are tender- hearted, I know how you definitely must be feeling, particularly when the kidnappings are going on, when they begin to kidnap school children.’’
The General Overseer however said Nigeria will record overwhelming victory in its battle against insecurity.
“Victory is around the corner” he told the governor and offered prayers for the governor, Kaduna state and Nigeria.
“I am assuring you that the Almighty God is going to fight for you, He is going to fight for Kaduna State, He is going to fight for Nigeria,’’ the pastor added.
Adeboye told the governor not to despair, but to put his trust in God at all times.
“When God begins to do what He alone can do, then the world will see it and they will glorify the name of God, and many people who might be criticizing you now, will probably see the other side of the story.’’
In his response, El Rufai commiserated with the Redeem Family over the recent abduction of some pastors and parishioners in the state.
“We also seek your blessings and prayers, as a great man of God, to assist us with the challenges that we are facing here and the country at large.
“This country needs divine intervention more than at any time in its history.
“We are grateful for your prayers, we are grateful for your blessings, and we will continue to ask for more”.
El-Rufai described the Redeem Church as a pillar and symbol of Nigeria’s unity “and positive force for peace and progress” in the country.
