- Charly Boy criticized clergymen Enoch Adeboye and William Kumuyi for supporting President Bola Tinubu, accusing them of lacking integrity
- He argued that Tinubu’s influence had exposed these prominent clergymen, previously seen as men of honor
Charles Oputa, popularly known as Charly Boy, a veteran Nigerian entertainer, has chastised clergymen Enoch Adeboye and William Kumuyi for drumming up support for President Bola Tinubu.
Kumuyi and Adeboye are prominent Pentecostal pastors in Nigeria, but their fame extends far beyond the country’s borders.
On Saturday, Charly Boy announced this via X, formerly Twitter.
Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), said ahead of Tinubu’s inauguration as president in May that there “shall be a new Nigeria.”
Adeboye made this statement in a new song he wrote.
The cleric expressed hope for a new Nigeria while singing along with his congregation.
“There shall be a new Nigeria!” said one of the lyrics. This is a decision that we must all make.
“We’ll see the nation of our dream, as we commit to prayers.”
Similarly, Kumuyi, the General Overseer of Deeper Life Church, urged Nigerians to be optimistic about Tinubu’s administration.
While speaking to reporters ahead, the cleric urged Nigerians to forget the past and accept the new leaders.
In a video that circulated on the Nigerian internet via AIT, the cleric stated that Nigerians should not be too quick to criticize the current government.
“This is a new day, and I believe; we all believe that our country will see new things through our president and cabinet members.” “Good things will happen,” he predicted.
In his post, Charly Boy, a Labour Party (LP) supporter, claimed Tinubu had exposed the duo.
Think of Soyinka, Adeboye, Kumiyi, and others as men of honor who would have gone to their graves.” “However, Tinubu has exposed them, and we now know them as men devoid of integrity and honor, he wrote.
