Pastor E. A Adeboye opening speech at the Special Thanksgiving Service | Redeemed Christian Church Of God.
I HAVE NEVER TOLD YOU: THIS IS THE FELLOW YOU SHOULD VOTE FOR, HAVE I EVER SAID THAT ONCE?
THE ONLY REASON I HAVE NEVER VOTED IS THAT IF I VOTE FOR ANYONE, I WILL BE UNJUST TO THE REST OF MY CHILDREN, I AM THE FATHER OF ALL AND I LIKE IT THAT WAY.
Well, before we go to the topic of today, I think I need to clear one very important point. I understand that some people have been writing all manners of articles about instructions that have been passed to all members of the Redeemed Christian Church of God. Let me make it loud and clear and please I want you to listen with anointed ears and anointed hearts, Pastor Adeboye is not and will never be a politician.

I have never been, I will never be, that is not my calling, I am called to be a pastor. That is what God called me to be, that is why you don’t have me carrying a very big title.
He said to me clearly, you’re to be Pastor. So, I am a pastor, I have said it again and again and again, I am not even a prophet, I only hear from Him once in a while and that will come in as I continue in my little talk with you today. Because I need to get this clear once and for all.
My assignment is to pray for you, pray for Nations including Nigeria, my assignment has nothing to do with partisan politics, don’t distract my attention. You will bear me out, those of you who are genuine members of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, I have never told you, this is the fellow you should vote for, have I ever said that once? Whether in secret or the open? Never!
I have never said: this is the party you should belong to; I have never said it, I will never say it and you know why? In the Redeemed Christian Church of God every party is heavily represented, everyone, APC, PDP, APGA, LABOUR PARTY, and some parties that you don’t even know their names, the only reason I have never voted is that if I vote for anyone, I will be unjust to the rest of my children, I am the Father of all and I like it that way. All I am saying and I am saying it loud and clear, as a Nigerian, every one of you, you’re all Nigerian, you’re Nigerian before you became a Christian, because nobody is born a Christian, you’re a true Christian after you gave your life to Jesus Christ. Amen!
