The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye has warned politicians and people in authority against promoting self interests at the expense of the generality of the people.
Pastor Adeboye came out with this in Yenagoa at a Public Service seminar for top Government functionaries as part of activities marking the 10th Anniversary of the church in Bayelsa state.
The Cleric said God would only exalt and provide for those who place service to mankind above their own interests, as God would always cater for people who tend to his sheep.
Pastor Adeboye, urged the people to acknowledge the fact that whatever positions they were occupying was for a purpose, emphasizing that if they utilize them to impact on people positively or negatively they would be rewarded accordingly.
In his remarks, the Bayelsa State Governor Seriake Dickson said the essence of his Restoration Government was to build institutions and systems to engender sustainable development and entrench democratic principles.
Dickson explained that this vision informed the decision to provide legal backing to the yearly Thanksgiving Day and other laws geared towards promoting accountability and good governance.
