The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Enoch Adeboye on Sunday in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital said lack of respect for the traditional institution was responsible for numerous challenges facing the country.

Speaking on the theme:”the king of glory” Adeboye said; “just like what Almighty God did in Genesis Chapter one verse three. He said; Let there be light and immediately there was light.
“God is someone that will do what he wants and nobody can query him.
That is why again in Yoruba land we call our kings kabiesi.
“The reason we have some of the problems we are having in our country today is because they have tampered with the power of our kings. If we restore the dignity, the ability and glory of our kings all will be well. God is the one who ruled by decree and you cannot query Him.”
