Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, has admitted that he was once a boxer.
This was disclosed on Sunday, July 3, by the revered priest during the sermon he gave entitled; “Meant for the top” at the church’s regular Thanksgiving ceremony, which our correspondent saw.
The clergyman said it required a lot to become a champion, based on his experience as a boxer; even as he advised the audience to continue working hard to succeed while drawing closer to God.
Adeboye said, “I used to be a boxer.
“And, one of the things you learn as a boxer is that it takes a lot before you become a champion.”
Adeboye also noted that after becoming a champion, the work was just starting; adding that there would be so many people who wanted to take the position away from the champion; hence, the need to work harder than even the challengers.
“The moment you become a champion, you discover that you have just started the work.
“The champion works harder than the challenger because there are many people who want to take your position,” Adeboye said.
The RCCG holds its Thanks Giving Service every first Sunday of the month where worshippers across the country and globe tune in to watch the G.O’s sermon.
Meanwhile, Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, has said that the All Progressives Congress Presidential flagbearer, Bola Tinubu, is not an experimental president.
According to him, this is due to his dexterity and strong rooting in politics and administration in the Nigerian project.
The governor made the assertion at the Governor’s Lodge, Aminu Kano House, Abuja, on Saturday, July 2.
This was when he received an award presented to him by the National Coalition of Tinubu Support Groups Worldwide; the national directorate, comprising Nigeria, United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Ireland, Germany, South Africa, Saudi Arabia, Brazil, Oman; as well as the United Arab Emirates chapters, for his leading role in Tinubu’s victory at the party’s primary election.
This is contained in a statement by the Kano State Commissioner for Information, Mohammad Garba, in Kano.
He said, given his outstanding performance as Lagos State Governor where he formed a formidable team; made up of people from different parts of the country that transformed the state into the strongest economy in the sub-region; Asiwaju’s presidency could best manage Nigeria’s diversity.
