The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has prophesied that the Nigerian currency, the Naira, will regain its strength among the league of currencies.
His prophecy comes as the naira this week exchanged to the dollar at N490 to $1 in the parallel market this week. Last week, the Naira to dollar exchange was N500 to $1.
Speaking on Saturday morning December 12 during the Church’s annual Holy Ghost Congress held at the RCCG International Headquarters along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, the 78-year-old cleric prayed to God to intervene in Nigeria’s financial sector and change the hearts of policymakers who deliberately devalue the naira.
“During our first Convention here at the Redemption Camp, I was bold, I asked everybody to come, free feeding. They came, I ran out of money. My wife came to me in the morning, ‘Sir, we need N5,000.’
Naira was powerful then. It will become powerful again. Those who are deliberately devaluing our naira, before tomorrow morning, God will intervene.
So, my wife said we needed N5,000. I asked her, ‘Do you need it today or later?’ She said today. I didn’t have a kobo. I told her to go. I cried to God that I needed a breakthrough. It wasn’t long after that, one man drove in, he wasn’t a member of the church.
He asked what’s going on and we said we are having a Convention. And then, he put his hands in his pocket and brought out an envelope with some money.
I then called on my wife and asked her, ‘How much do you say you need?’’ he said
