Adeboye remains General Overseer Worldwide - RCCG | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f


Despite the appointment of a new General Overseer for the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, in Nigeria, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye remains the General Overseer, Worldwide of the church.

A statement signed by Leke Adeboye, the clergyman’s last son and Personal Assistant said the clarification is in response to alleged misrepresentation of Pastor E. A Adeboye’s announcement at the Annual Ministers Thanksgiving held at the redemption camp on Saturday that the Church in Nigeria is now to be led by Pastor Joseph Obayemi.

The statement clarified that the latest development is sequel to the new legal requirements set up by the Financial Regulations Council of Nigeria (FRCN) guiding all registered churches, mosques, and CSOs.

The regulation according to the statement stipulates that “heads of non profit organisations like churches now have a maximum period of twenty years to lead their organizations while in retirement, they are not permitted to hand over to their families.”

Leke Adeboye added that Pastor Funsho Odesola, will now serve as the new Church Secretary while Pastor Joseph Adeyokunu, is the new Church Treasurer.‎

He advised all members of RCCG to understand this new structure and go about their service to God and humanity in holiness and soul winning.
He also appealed to members to educate people around them and not spread inaccurate information stressing that Pastor E.A Adeboye remains the General Overseer of RCCG Worldwide.

  1. I concur to Government's inquiry into Financial Reports of Religious Organisations.

    This is in the interest of the Nigerian masses who are mostly members of these Religious Organisations due to the exploitative tendencies & extravagant lifestyle of some of their leaders.

    However, interference with their leadership tenures, is totally unacceptable, as some of them may be truly called by God, which is tantamount to hindering the work of God.

    But, as it is practiced in Orthodox Churches, the Pentecostal Churches should show strict adherence to the Bible by being open about their finances. They should be holy enough to render Open Financial Account to their members.

    I see all these melodrama as a ploy to divert attention from the core issue which bothers on Financial Accountability to entire congregations and membership. To whom much is given, much should also be expected. Orthodox Churches render Open Financial Account to their congregation and membership, the Pentecostal Churches should follow suit and do the same.

    May almighty God deliver Nigeria.

    We need deliverance oooooo....
