Enoch Adeboye, General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), has said the country has enough money to provide “juicy” palliatives for all Nigerians.
He, however, lamented that corruption and accountability are part of the problems preventing such development from occurring.
The cleric spoke at the monthly thanksgiving service at the RCCG Headquarters, Throne of Grace, Ebute-Metta, Lagos State.
Adeboye, who was represented by the Assistant General Overseer, Administration and Personnel, Pastor Johnson Odesola, explained that the church spends between N250 million to N400 million monthly on corporate social responsibility,
He also used the occasion to express gratitude to God for intervening in the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in the country.
He said: “To say there is not enough money to give juicy palliatives to Nigerians is an understatement because Nigeria has the money. But the problem known to everyone is corruption and lack of accountability. For example, in RCCG, we spend a substantial amount of money on corporate social responsibility of between N250m and N400m every month.”
Commenting on the hike in the pump price of fuel and electricity, Adeboye noted that the government needed to be considerate with its people and reconsider introducing such policies at a time people were getting relief from the scourge of COVID-19.
