The general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, accused political parties of hiring crowds to attend their rallies.

The renowned cleric made this known in a sermon during the RCCG January Holy Spirit Service on Friday.

“I see it on the news. If human beings promote you, oh, I don’t know if I should say this. I’m sure you’ve been watching the campaign rallies, I see it on the news. I don’t know if you’ve noticed that two different people don’t campaign simultaneously in a town.

“Have you noticed that? Don’t you know why? Because most of the crowd, most are rented. So I come, I pay, you pick up. After I’m gone, another man comes, he pays, you collect.

And he added: “Someone said: ‘Daddy, you keep saying that you haven’t heard from God about who will win or who…’ Maybe because there are several things that occupy my mind and one of them is; when i see the crowd gathered and if you look at the crowd most of them are young.

“When I see the hundreds of thousands of young people, you have to be unemployed to attend all these rallies. What will happen when the campaigns are over?

Adeboye had also hinted that God had not yet spoken to him about the winner of the country’s next president in the upcoming 2023 elections.

“He may be saying the election is next month and He hasn’t spoken yet. I advise you to prepare the PVC from him.

“If He doesn’t speak before the election, then be ready to vote as your spirit leads. If He tells me, well, I can tell you or I can’t tell you,” he said.
