Pastor Adeboye: Politicians are liars!

General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has said that he does not trust politicians because they are liars. Speaking on Friday at a two-day interdenominational prayer in Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Adeboye said politicians in most cases hardly fulfill their promises.


He used a story about three travellers – an Indian, a Jew and a politician- to support his claim.

According to Punch, he said while the three men were travelling, they had a problem and went to a farmer for help, but the farmer said he could only accommodate two people.

Adeboye said the Indian volunteered to sleep in the barn, but returned few minute later that there was a cow there.

The Indian, according to the illustration, said he couldn’t sleep in the barn because cows were gods worshipped in his country.

The Jew also came back complaining that pig was inside the barn and that the place was dirty.

The politician also volunteered to sleep there, but instead of the politician to come back to complain, Adeboye said it was the pig and cow that came knocking that the politician should be sent away because he promised to make the environment, including the barn conducive with air-conditioner.

The cleric said, “I don’t trust politicians. Politicians are liars. They don’t fulfil most of their promises. A politician can tell you that they will give all of you (students) chicken each, which we all know it is impossible.”

Adeboye however, asked Nigerians not to worry about who emerges winner in next month’s elections.

He said, “God has already planned who will be the President of Nigeria. God has already planned that before we were born. God is not like human beings who doubt what is to be done. He has plan for everything.”
