Pastor Enoch Adeboye, General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), has faulted the planned redesign of the Naira by the Central Bank of Nigeria.
In his sermon during the church’s November Holy Ghost Service, themed, ‘Let It Rain’, Adeboye lamented that the Naira is not worth the paper it is being printed on yet those in-charge want to beautify it.
“You know what’s going on in our country. It doesn’t even make sense anymore. Our naira now is not even worth the paper it is printed on.
“And while people are hungry, trying to find enough money to buy bread to eat, our bosses are thinking of making the naira more beautiful, even if it can’t buy bread, at least, it will look beautiful. Oh Lord, have mercy!
“We have problems in the land now. Things seem to be getting funnier and funnier. If you don’t learn to laugh in Nigeria now, you will develop hypertension.”
