Pastor Adeboye’s Message Asking Son To Sack Female Secretary To Avoid Infidelity Sparks Reactions

Nigeria’s Twittersphere has gone into overdrive over Pastor Enoch Adeboye’s revelation that he once asked one of his sons to sack his female secretary to avoid cheating on his wife.

The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) shared excerpts from his recent sermon on marriage titled “CRUSH THAT CRUSH” in a series of tweets on Wednesday.

Adeboye said, “One of my sons once told me that he was always excited to resume in the office every Monday because he would get to see his secretary again. I told him to fire her immediately. Nothing and no one is worth your marriage.”

The above part of the message sparked mixed reactions from twitter users.

A twitter user, @FeralJack_, while reacting to the tweet said: “Wait sir, you told your son to fire somebody and take their source of income away from them, not becuase of a wrong they did, but becuase of your son who can’t keep his feelings in check?”


Adeboye in his tweets had argued that, “If there is any fellow aside from your spouse you are admiring unduly, you must see such a person as the devil and get rid of them immediately.”

His message further reads: “What is a married woman doing on the phone with another man for countless minutes? Why would a married man be spending so much time with another man’s wife? Why would you prefer to discuss intimate issues with your “friend” of the opposite sex instead of your God-given spouse?

“Oh, you may say “I am not doing anything with the fellow; we are just friend.” That is exactly where it starts from. The devil knows you are a Christian and would not fall for someone just like that.

“So, he makes you become good friends with the fellow and before you know it, you would have fallen. May you not fall for any strategy of the devil in the mighty name of Jesus. If you have any friend that you talk to more than your spouse, break that friendship now.

“Proverbs 5:18 has this to say: “Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth.”


“Spend more time with your spouse and make him/her your confidant. Exchange compliments. The reason many people have crushes outside their marriage is mostly due to a distance between the couple.

“They no longer communicate as they used to. When they talk, it is only on serious issues about the children or other family needs, instead of talking/gisting about just anything as they used to in the early days of their marriage.

“They no longer go out to fun places or take walks together except they are going for family functions. If there is no distance between yourself and your spouse, no crush can come between you. No one should be closer to you or know more about you than your spouse.”

The RCCG GO’s message has continued to generate mixed reactions from Nigerians with “Pastor Adeboye” trending at number one on the micro-blogging platform.
