The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye has said he would live up to 90 years before he prepares for death.
Pastor Adeboye urged his members not to celebrate his birthday now.
Pastor Adeboye, who is currently 78-years-old, said this while addressing his members at a special service at the church’s headquarters along Lagos-Ibadan expressway.
He said if Jesus Christ does not return soon, he would not die young, notingp that it would be a lie to think that he would die soon.
He promised to hold an elaborate birthday ceremony at the age of 90 years before his death.
According to Adeboye: “I am not going to die young. Some people were laughing when they heard me say that don’t worry yourselves celebrating any birthday for me now. Wait till I am 90; then we will celebrate for a whole month.
“They think I am joking. Unless the Lord returns before then, at the age of 90, I am going to celebrate for a whole month.
“At the age of 90, after that celebration, then I can begin to get ready to go. But, that I am going to die soon, that’s a lie.”

‘Borrowing Is Needed For Nigeria’s Growth’- Finance Minister, Zainab Ahmed
Nigeria’s Minister of Finance, Zainab Ahmed, has defended the country’s level of borrowing saying that Nigeria cannot make progress if it doesn’t borrow to fund the building of its infrastructure.
She said this at a media briefing at the statehouse Abuja on Thursday, while reacting to criticism regarding high levels of borrowing by this administration.
According to her,
”The level of borrowing is not unreasonable. It is not high. If we say we will not borrow and therefore we will not build rails and major infrastructure until our revenue rises enough, we will regress as a country. We will be left behind. We wouldn’t be able to improve our business environment and our economy will not grow.
We just need to make sure that when we borrow, we apply the borrowing to specific major infrastructure that would enhance the business environment in this country”
The total borrowing of Nigeria as of December 31, 2020 is nearly 25% of the GDP.
LAUTECH Reacts To ‘Sex Tape’ Of Its Lecturer Having Sex With A Student
The Management of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology LAUTECH, has reacted to the viral video of one of the university’s lecturer allegedly having sex with a student of the institution.
A short 44-seconds video was the talk of social media yesterday. The video showed a middle-aged man having sex with a young lady in a room. The lecturer was left in shock after he turned during the act to see a third party filming him. The video was later released online.
Reacting to the development, the school authorities in a statement released, denied claims that the female is one of its students.
”We don’t have anything to do with the lady you mentioned. There are many of them who did not even complete secondary school education but would go on social media to claim they are LAUTECH students.
We don’t know her. LAUTECH is a school for serious-minded students and staff and not her type.”
