The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor E.A Adeboye, has pleaded with youths in his church to refrain from uploading his messages on social media.
He also begged them not to be quote him, and spare him the torrents of backlash, adding that such upload can attract millions of social media users.
This message is coming after the pastor was widely lambasted over his counsel to youths in his church concerning marriage.
Pastor Adeboye said, ‘This is the garden, keep it.’ So when anybody comes to you and say, ‘Sister, thus saith the Lord, you are going to be the star in my firmament,’ ask him; ‘What is your job?’”
In another video, he advised men, “Marry a prayer warrior! Don’t marry any girl who cannot pray for 1 hour non-stop. Don’t marry a girl who is lazy! If she is lazy when she is single, what will happen if she is married?
Having following his message, many social media users had blasted him.
Recall that in August 2016, the daughter of Victor Omololu Olunloyo, a former governor of Oyo State, Kemi Olunloyo, whose public criticism of reputable people knows no bounds, called him a lunatic for his alleged unwise advice on marriage.
Among others, a former Nigerian Prophet and Evangelist Minister at Windows of Heaven Revival Outreach in London, United Kingdom, Folayan Osekita had criticized Adeboye’s warnings, saying people have their different stories when it comes to marriage.
But months after trolls called him out, Daddy G.O, as Adeboye is fondly called, has begged youths of the church to stop uploading his videos or quoting him on social media.
Speaking during the church’s youth programme plenary session themed ‘vessels unto honour’ some days ago, the popular RCCG pastor pleaded with the participants at the programme to spare him the problem of social media by not uploading the program’s video on YouTube.
He said, “Spare me the problem.
“I’m not talking to you so that you can put me on YouTube,” the pastor begged.
