Nigerian disc jockey and activist, Obianuju Catherine Udeh, professionally known as DJ Switch, has criticized Pastor E.A. Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), for consistently urging Nigerians to pray for the country.
Taking to the microblogging platform X, DJ Switch accused the clergyman of always calling for prayers for the country but never addressing the root causes of the nation’s problems. She pointed out that even Jesus Christ called out corruption in his time.
“Pastor Adeboye constantly urging Nigerians to pray for Nigeria… but rarely calls out the cause of Nigeria’s woes! Rarely calls them out for a failure to serve. The Jesus you worship served and called out corruption point blank! Some of una go say touch not my anointed! Anointing wey no dey anoint.”
This drew criticism from some followers of the renowned clergyman. In response to one of her critics, DJ Switch clarified that she doesn’t expect Pastor Adeboye to curse Nigeria but to address the individuals responsible for the nation’s stagnation.
She wrote in a follow-up tweet,
“I expect him to curse the people that have plunged Nigeria into the deep poverty, corruption, lawlessness, backwardness, thuggery, terrorism and suffering many Nigerians are experiencing but because your brain is the size of a lint, I understand that you can only think in strands. Maybe spend some time, do some light reading to better to enhance your cognitive skills… only then can you begin to grasp the concept that a knife can either be a tool or a weapon! It all depends on who’s handling it. Happy dependence day!”
