Prayers can’t pitch naira against US dollars – Omokri tackles Pastor Adeboye

Share This



Reno Omokri, a sociopolitical critic, has tackled the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, General Overseer, Pastor Enoch Adeboye over his latest comment on the fall of the naira against the United States, US, dollars.


Omokri said prayer would not help the naira to gain value against the US dollars as populated by Adeboye, stressing that Nigerians should resort to work.


The former Presidential aide urged Adeboye to influence his followers to take up agriculture and patronize locally made Nigerian goods to help the naira improve against the dollar rather than resort to prayer.


Posting on X, Omokri wrote: “Thank you for your call. We love you and honour your contribution to the growth of the church. However, I again beg to differ. The Naira situation is not something we should PRAY about with all our strength. Rather, it is a situation that requires us to WORK with all our combined strengths.


“Other nations with high-value currencies did not achieve that feat via prayers. They got there through hard work and sound economic policies. And many of them, like China and Japan, are non-praying, non-tithing, non-Christian nations. That is why in China, a Chinese man was asked, ‘Do you know Christ?’ responded with, ‘No. But if you show me, I will produce a copy!’ It sounds funny, but it goes to the root of their economic success.


“You have millions of members under your influence as the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God. If you want the Naira to rise, tell your members to switch from Airtel and MTN to Glo. Tell them to eat Dangote spaghetti and other staples. And encourage them to drive Innoson vehicles.


“Then, reduce your church activities. RCCG members attend church almost daily. Pick only one or two days. And then tell your members to go to work at their jobs or businesses on the other days.


“Finally, use your considerable influence to counsel your members and other Nigerians not to see the rainy season as ‘weather for two’, but instead use it to go to the farms and cultivate what we eat so that Nigeria can reduce her $5 billion annual food import bill.


“If millions of RCCG members implement such a directive, Nigeria’s Gross Domestic Product will explode.


“But to rely on prayer alone is both unscriptural and unscientific. We must remember that God promised to “bless all the work of your hands” in Deuteronomy 28:12. Prayer is not work. It is faith. And, James 2:17 says, “Faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.”
