For more than 20 years, he has led countless delegations to Israel, also spoken at the Feast of Tabernacles organized by the ICEJ, donated ambulances to Magen David Adom, and created a business forum for Nigerian and Israeli businessmen and women to further their collaboration.
It is rumored that Pastor Adeboye’s relationship with then President Goodluck Jonathan was the reason Nigeria abstained from voting for a Palestinian State in the United Nations Security Council in 2014. Nigeria was supposed to be the 9th vote needed to block the US veto on the resolution. With Nigeria's abstention, the motion failed with only 8 votes.
I believe that no matter how hard (people) try, they will not be able to move the Nation of Israel from the place God gave their forefathers.Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye
