Leke Adeboye, the last son and Senior Personal Assistant of the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye called on the general public to seek alternative means to make provision for what they lack as the number of letters the church get asking for help is becoming quite alarming.
Leke made the statement in a video shared on his Instagram page lamenting the influx of those seeking help from the church.
“Nigeria has come out of recession but now we are in farming, I would like to advise you my brother and sisters if you cannot afford to buy food go back to trade by barter system.
“If you have beans trade with someone that has cassava because that is the only way to get out of recession because the number of letters we get in the church today asking for help.
“Some jokers are even asking that we sponsor them to Russia for schooling. Why not go to a regular school in Nigeria.
“If we didn’t save earlier, we would not have anything now. God bless you,” he said.
In response, Cool FM OAP Daddy Freeze has issued a lengthy response to Leke’s advice.
“how are you and how is your daddy? Tell him I send my utmost regards and kind considerations,” he said.
“You are making a lot of sense with this trade by batter suggestion, but let me ask you this, does your dad pay his private jet pilots with cassava or rice? Does he exchange garri for aviation fuel?”
“Charity they say begins at home, why not start by collecting tithes and offering in grains and cattle like it was originally intended in the Bible?
“The ‘jokers’ you mentioned so respectfully, could go to one of the numerous redeemed schools littered across Nigeria, can’t they? This shouldn’t be rocket science. You speak of money ‘saved’. I ask from where precisely? Through what means was this money ‘earned’? Do accept my kind regards….”
