Eminent lawyer and activist, Ebun-olu Adegboruwa, a Pastor with the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), has faulted those claiming that long-reigning General Overseer, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, who announced his retirement yesterday, remains in control as General Overseer, RCCG Worldwide. Adegboruwa declared in a statement issued late yesterday in Lagos that such a position does not exist in the church. His words:
“I have seen a post by which it is said that Pastor Adeboye has not retired but he is now to be addressed as General Overseer, RCCG WORLDWIDE.
“I have now checked the Constitution of the RCCG and also spoken to senior members of the Mission on this issue. What pastor Adeboye told us himself was to introduce to us A NEW GENERAL OVERSEER. So I cannot see an overseer under another overseer.
“In times past, Pastor Adeboye himself had told us that there is nothing like RCCG WORLDWIDE.
“RCCG churches in other nations are registered under the laws of each of those nations and there’s no such legal entity as RCCG Worldwide. You cannot create an inexistent position for Daddy GO to embarrass him. If God told him to appoint a new General Overseer, so be it. There is no need for controversy in this matter.
“The other issue in this is the wrong impression being created that but for the law and regulations of the Financial Reporting Council, Daddy GO would not have stepped down. This is not so at all, given that Pastor Adeboye himself had said in times past that he would soon hand over the reins of power.
“I’m glad that an official statement has now been issued by the Church that Pastor Adeboye is now the Spiritual Leader and Global Missioner.
“We love our Daddy and still look forward to his leadership roles for the church.”
