Former Aviation Minister, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode has disagreed with General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye over the cleric’s comment that changing the service chiefs would not improve the security situation in the country.

Speaking through the Assistant General Overseer, Administration and Personnel, Pastor Johnson Odesola at the church’s headquarters in Ebute Metta, Lagos, Adeboye said, “I believe the service chiefs are working and aside from those that have attained their retirement age, they have been studying the situation of the country in terms of security and would have some plans they are working on.

“If they are just changed, the new service chiefs would have to start all over again.

“I believe in good succession plan whereby those to replace the current service chiefs would learn from the incumbents and only need to continue from where they stop.”

Reacting, Fani-Kayode said he “humbly” disagreed with the revered cleric, saying that more innocent souls had been killed by terrorist organisations under the current service chiefs than at any other time in the nation’s history.

He stated this in a tweet on Monday.

Fani-Kayode wrote, “More innocent souls have been killed by terrorist organisations in the last 4 years than at any other time in our history yet a great man of God who we love and respect like Pastor Enoch Adeboye of RCCG will say that the Service Chiefs should not be changed? I humbly disagree!”
