How aviation official demanded bribe before Adeboye could fly his chopper
The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye has narrated how an aviation official demanded bribe before he could able him fly his chopper.
The man of God disclosed this on Saturday during a special meeting with all ordained ministers of the mission at RCCG, Region 21, Oyo State.
Adeboye, who arrived at RCCG 21 Headquarters, Oluyole, Ibadan, around 1:25 pm, said he arrived late for the meeting because someone had requested a bribe from him to fly his chopper.
“I don’t give excuses because I have discovered long ago that only failures give excuses. But you must pray for Nigeria.
“Something must be done about corruption in this nation. All I can say is that I’m this late because somebody wanted a bribe. And you know if you’re expecting a bribe from me, you have to wait forever.
“But the devil has failed. And the devil will continue to fail. Fortunately for me, when I said…I started to leave for Ibadan by 9:00 am.
“I decided to come because I know what the devil could do, by helicopter, so that there won’t be a traffic jam that would tie me down on the expressway.
“Then, I ran into something else. But by the grace of God, we’re here,” Adeboye said.
Meanwhile, Sunday Tribune gathered that the authority, which demanded a bribe from the septuagenarian, was communicated with to authorise the use of the airspace at the material time.
It was further gathered that it took a presidential involvement from Abuja before Adeboye could embark on the trip to meet with the ordained ministers in Ibadan after experiencing a five-hour delay by the federal authority.
