Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye is no longer the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), the church affirmed on Saturday evening.

News Express was among the first to report Adeboye’s quitting of the position, which he announced on Saturday morning, but a confusion arose after Leke Adeboye, the clergyman’s last son and Personal Assistant, issued a statement claiming that his father remained the General Overseer, Worldwide, of the church, while Pastor Joseph Obayemi will head the Church in Nigeria.

However, RCCG’s new General Secretary in Nigeria, Pastor Funsho Odeshola, later issued a Memo in which he confirmed that Pastor E. A. Adeboye was no longer the General Overseer, as announced by the legendary cleric himself at the Annual Ministers Thanksgiving of the church held yesterday at the Redemption Camp located along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

The Memo RCCG/PERS/IFO/AD/MEMO/07/01/2017 entitled “New Structure in RCCG Nigeria”, confirmed that the church in Nigeria will now be led by Pastor Joseph Obayemi.

The Memo was addressed to All Assistant General Overseers, SATGOS (Home and Abroad), Pastors 1/c of Regions, Pastors 1/c of Provinces/Country Coordinators.

It clarified that Adeboye stepped down in Nigeria to conform with the new legal requirements set up by the Financial Regulations Council, guiding all registered churches, mosques, and CSOs.

The regulation stipulates that heads of non-profit organisations like churches now have a maximum period of twenty years to lead their organisations. They are not permitted to hand over to their families.

The Memo never referred to Pastor E.A. Adeboye as the General Overseer of RCCG Worldwide

As claimed by Leke Adeboye but said: “Kindly be informed that this new structure is particular to Nigeria alone, as Pastor E.A. Adeboye, Daddy GO, remains the Spiritual Leader and Global Missioner of the Redeemed Christian Church of God.”

The Memo confirmed that Pastor Funsho Odesola will now serve as the new General Secretary of RCCG Nigeria while Pastor Joseph Adeyokunu, is the new Treasurer.‎

Pastor E.A. Adeboye, whom many people mistake as the founder of RCCG, was actually its second General Overseer. He assumed the position in 1981 and worked hard over the following decades to make RCCG the fastest growing church in the world with a presence in about 192 nations of the world.
