The General Overseer of the Redeemed
Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch

The man of God revealed this while speaking
in Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, during
a two-day interdenominational prayer.

as the best university in Nigeria. I urge
students to be prayerful and cautious of what
they do as God will continue to protect us.”
