Pastor EA Adeboye retires as General Overseer of RCCG, names successor | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper

Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye has retired as the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG).


Just last year, the church slammed those calling for the 74-year-old to retire as head of RCCG.

Pastor Johnson Odesola, Special Assistant to Pastor Adeboye on Administration and Personnel, said at the time that the church’s constitution did not state that anyone above 70 years should not lead the ministry.

He said: “Whereas the constitution provided that the deputy and assistant general overseers are appointed to retire at 70 and enjoy their retirement benefits for life, there is no such provision for the general overseer.”

Pastor J.O. Obayemi has been named as Adeboye’s successor.

Obayemi was a deputy in charge of Finance and a member of governing council, before his appointment.

    1. Religion has turned many ignoramuses and idiots. God never wished those he created with complete human faculties to serve and worship him to be so.
      Many Pastors and men of God made this possible for mundane gains. May God have mercy.

  4. The new government rule that no leader should lead a religious organization more than 20 years and also after 70 years affects religious organization in Nigeria starting Jan, 2017. RCCG as a compliant organization has done that and a new Overseer has been selected to lead RCCG Nigeria. Daddy G.O remains the Shepherd worldwide. Be informed.

    1. So the Nigerian constitution gives the government the right to decide on how law abiding religious bodies select their leaders? If it is a new law, when was it gazetted? This suit you are wearing seems to be suit of ignorance and stupidity because your level of ignorance not jut amazing but legendary. Ode!
